2 Christmas Finishes

Well I have two Christmas themed finishes that cross off one more goal on my crazy list.

First up is a Furry tales design that I stitched up and sent to Steph.

Furry tales from an issue of WOXS

This second stitch will be made into an ornament for my home. I miscounted on the width of the border but had done too much to undo so I just moved the red backstitch. I literally just finished this ornament so thought I'd get a quick post in.

Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year!

Poppies and a furry tales design

Well, I've just picked the poppies up from the framers and I'm really pleased with the result. It's my first time having something professionally framed and I can't help but stare at it!

Sorry for the glare but it was too dark not to use flash.

I just finished this little guy this morning but excuse him, he hasn't long come out of his bath. He was a quick and delightful stitch. That's at least one more crossed of my crazy list.

Hope you all have a good weekend :)

Some stitching :)

Hi everyone!

I haven't been stitching much just a few stitches here and there so I thought I'd post some photos.

Furry Tales Teapot as of 6.12.14
I started this cute little mouse (WOXS) today as he is on my list for 2015. As he is so little, I knew I could get him done before the end of the year.

HAED TT Kitten 2 as of 6.12.14
This one wasn't been stitched on for about a month but I have recently introduced a friend to HAED and wanted to show her this little guy only to find that I hadn't taken a photo since July so here he is. The larger blocks of colour went quite fast.

Wedding Sampler as of 6.12.14
I'm still cracking on with this! There's a bit more blue in the border, I want to reach the 4th horseshoe then I'll move on to the middle for a bit so that I can move the frame along. I hope that by rewarding myself with horseshoes or parts of the middle after a decent block of blue has been done then I'll get a move on with it.

In other news, I have sent Trio of Poppies off to be framed, sadly I couldn't get hold of an oval frame for it (that or I'd have to pay over £70!) so I just went for a nice wooden frame with cream and red mounts. It's due back next Saturday so I will post a photo once it's back home. Last week at uni coming up before the Christmas holidays, hopefully I'll get more stitching in then and get those 2 bags done!
