Strawberry House

Finished the Strawberry House, it was lovely to stitch. Not sure how I am going to finish it yet, probably frame it.

Also finished my first pinkeep using a SanMan design (forum member's only chart). It looked OK until I scanned it now it looks uneven along the bottom. I will have to pay more attention when I make my next one.

Not sure what I am going to stitch next there are so many I want to do. I really should finish one of my WIP but I expect I will start something new.

Halloween Tucks

Here are the Halloween tucks from SanMan Originals (forum member's only charts). I love these and so do my boys they want loads and loads stitched for Halloween. LOL


A Halloween Tale

I'm going to give Halloween a rest for a while as I want to stitch Strawberry House by Little House Needlework. I want to try a pinkeep as well so I have found a little piece I stitched a while ago and will see how I get on.

A few finishes and a disaster

Well it's been a while but with the holidays it's been a bit busy here. One more week and the boys go back to school. I have managed to stitch a few things and finish a couple of ornaments I stitched a few years ago.

Halloween Jars by SanMan Originals(Forum member's only chart. The chart has writing down the side but my boys just wanted the jars. I'm going to make it into a banner. Just need to find some material for the banner.

Not sure who the designer is, but it must be from one of the JCS Ornament magazines.

Snowflakes falling by Rosie's Garden

Scare Who? by Sanman Originals (forum member's only chart). Sandy from SanMan also made the tuck, it's so cute.

I have also stitched a couple of little SanMan Halloween pieces, I'll put them in the tucks and show you them tomorrow. Now for the disaster...........

I joined a SAL on OakHaven Designs. I stitched the first part, stitched the second part and then I realised I had stitched with the fabric the wrong way! I cannot believe it I have never done that before. Oh well I will leave it a week or two and then start it again. It is a lovely design. Here is the disaster piece.

I'm going to do something with this maybe turn it into a fob so that it will be there to remind me not to do it again. LOL
