New stitching start required and WIP'S

I have hardly done a stitch since finishing Thread Gathering so I think I will have to get a new start on my hoop.  I actually managed to do some on Conor's Penguin that I promised him but that's about it so I think its time to get back into the swing of things and get that needle smoking again.  This is my next project and I think it suits me down to the ground since I seem to be travelling backwards and forwards to mum and dads at the moment!!  I am in their house until tomorrow morning so I think I will make a start on this piece tonight!  I also need to start (according to the world of Mark my son) Pirate's Life by Country Cottage Needleworks for him! lol

A project to start for me

None stitching news is that my 3 year old (4 tomorrow) is starting school on Monday and she is so looking forward to going and making new friends.  As I said I am in mum and dads at the moment but myself, eldest daughter Laura, eldest son James and my dad are all travelling back to my house tomorrow.  We are booked on the early flight so will be home in time for presents and cake :-)

Apologies to you

I just wish to say that I am sorry for not being about much over the past 2-3 months.  I have been away at my parents plus it was the 8 weeks school Summer Holidays her in Northern Ireland.  My kiddies have totally hogged my laptop over the holidays and I have not been able to keep in touch.

So apologies to friends and fellow bloggers for lack of communication and I shall be back to full swing with comments etc.

Happy stitching and Blogging to you all.


Finishes, Exchanges and New Start

After 2 finishes over the last week or so I have started Thread Gathering which is a chart by Little House Needleworks.  I am totally enjoying this design and cannot wait to get back to stitching it later on this afternoon.

'Thread Gathering' by LHN
Crescent threads being used :-)

I am really pleased with myself after having very few finishes over the last weeks that I have now finished another Ornie by LHN and Liberty Lane.

Silent Night was a dream to stitch as I loved the fabric.  A lovely relaxing stitch for the Friday night SAL

'Silent Night' by LHN
Stitched on 30 count Tin Roof linen by Weeks Works
DMC and Crescent Threads used

Ok I did cheat a little with Liberty Lane because I have only stitched the row of houses and trees but I really like the look of the design like this.  Shhhh dont tell anyone I cheated! :-) 

Liberty Lane by CCN
Stitched with Sampler threads and DMC

I have joined a Halloween exchange so will have to get stitching for that.  I have also completed a Autumn bag exchange ... sorry no photos yet as I will have to wait for my partner to receive and open the Autumn Bag Exchange before showing it off.

Happy Stitching to you all
Take care and be good!!
