Sun, Stash & Stitching

The three things that make every stitcher smile :)

Yes the sun has finally been shining here in Abingdon and my god it's been lovely!! Sadly the weatherman keeps telling me that the rain clouds are due back this weekend but I'm choosing not to believe him!!

I have some lovely new stash goodies courtesy of eBay. The Christmas in July theme continues as they are all festive designs, it really is one of my favourite holidays!

A couple of Lizzie Kate Charts


Limited Edition GAST Winter thread pack

Lizzie Kate'sChristmas Rules


Also picked up some Aida grab bags and an OOP dmc thread from my LNS when I went in to pick up some DMC 739 for Super Mario ~ I couldn't leave without buying more than one thing now could I?!


And lastly I have some stitching to show. I forgot to sign up for IHSW as usual but I still stitched anyway. I finished Mario #1 (bar 7 stitches in the colour I'd run out of...stupid background)

And frogged and restarted 'Button Button' by CCN. (Originally started too low on the Aida) But as I've really not done much there isn't a photo :)

Not massive amounts done but I was also out enjoying the sun!!

Happy Stitching

Thanks lesleyanne! Lizzie Kate is probably my favourite designer, her designs are always so colourful and fun to stitch! Quick too ;)

Super Mario looks great! It's going to take a while to finish though, I think. How long have you been working on this one?

Hey CSN!! I've been working on this for over a year now but I stopped for a long time to work on exchanges and other stitches!
