October IHSW

This month, I actually stitched this weekend :)

I've been working on a Christmas ornament for an exchange. It's my first time using plastic canvas even though it has sat in my stash for a few months now and it's a delight to work on. You definitely need a small needle for casting off as I found larger needles difficult to get under the stitches. Hopefully it'll be posted by next week and then I can show you all a photo.

My main priority is to get Tatty Ted finished. Here he is just missing a day or two's worth of backstitch on the actual bear.

All that will be left to do is the personalisation which I had to re-chart as I lost the one I had done previously during the move. It's about time this little guy was complete since it is now 3 months after the graduation.Then I want to work on Trio of Poppies as I should be able to finish that by the New Year (well that's the plan anyway). 

I'm glad to have found a bit of the stitchy bug but he's not back in full swing yet.

October TUSAL

I'm sorry I didn't post for IHSW...I didn't actually stitch that weekend. I've not had a lot of stitching time recently and stitchy bug seems to have hidden from the cold weather that's decided to visit. I have started another one of my 15 - Travel Memories.

The small stitching pieces I have found time to complete will have to be a secret for now :) Hopefully I can get back to stitching and post again soon.
