Needles & Natter Thursday

Woop finally up to date and on today's progress!

Took Autumn-ation to Rosie's Tea Rooms today for my Needles & Natter group and managed a bit more stitching while 'nattering'

Will do a bit more this afternoon and then I'm off to the cinema in Didcot tonight as they are showing a theatre performance of Frankenstein staring Benedict Cumberbatch as the Creature :)

Happy Haunting!

WIP Wednesday

As I mentioned in my last post I have a new start to show you all, it's only small so it should stitch up quite quickly.

Autumn-ation by Lizzie Kate:

Stitched on an offcut of 16ct Aida leftover from Halloween Rules using the recommended hand dyed thread

I have also made some more progress on Super Mario, page 3 is now past the halfway mark and I've marked off the remaining pages in pencil on the fabric(far more visible in person than in the photo), It's finally starting to feel like I might finish this one!

Happy Haunting!!

Belated Photos

I have had problems with Google Chrome this week so haven't been able to update as quickly as I promised, thankfully it seems to be working properly again now so without any further delay here are my finishes from last week!
Halloween Rules By Lizzie Kate, stitched on 16ct Aida using the recommended threads
 Dandy Dreams by Silver Creek Samplers, stitched on 16ct green marble Aida using the recommended DMC threads

Progress on Super Mario, almost halfway through page 3!!

So there we go, that is what I got up to my week off work :) I have further updates & a new start to share but that can wait until later :)

Happy Haunting!

Friday Finishes!

hello....anybody out there? Apparently it has been two months since my last post, for that I can only apologise, life kind of got in the way.

Since my last post my contracted hours at work have increased and I find myself with less and less time to do anything involving any kind of needle, I've even had to give up my Thursday morning knitting group :(

Still I can't complain, I really need the extra money especially this time of year (Harrogate!!)

As I've been off work this last week I finally got to sit down and get some proper stitching in, as a result I have two stitching happy dances! I finished Dandy Dreams & Halloween Rules this week, I've also made some serious progress on Super Mario, which will be my main focus for the rest of the year.

Hopefully I'll get some photos up of progress & happy dances before I have to go back to work on Sunday, this week has flown by way to quickly but I have enjoyed my R&R time!
