Two More For Halloween

I have finished two more great Halloween tucks by SanMan Originals. We love Halloween and my boys love to decorate the house with all things spooky. This one is called Boo To You.

And the second one is called Do Drop In. You cannot see the pattern on the black tuck very well in the scan but it has spiders and their webs all over it.

I am going to stitch a chart called Cocoa and Marshmallow over the weekend and then I am going to stitch another Halloween one. Never can have enough Halloween stitching. LOL

Half Term

Well half term is over now and not much stitching time with the boys home. I did manage to get two pieces stitched.

Christmas Angel by Heart in Hand, this is going to be finished as an ornament


White Christmas by Drawn Thread, not sure about how this one is going to be finished maybe a pillow. No stitching on my AOY last week and I don't feel like stitching on it at the moment, I think I will stitch one of the Sanman Halloween tucks.

Cowes and Sandwich

Well it seems silly just to make a post about a fairly new WIP so I will show you some of the places we love to visit. We live within 20 - 30 mins of some lovely places. Dover Castle, Walmer and Deal Castle, the City of Canterbury and one of my favourite places to take our dog Charlie for a walk is Sandwich. There are loads of old buildings and I never get tired of walking through the narrow streets and looking at the buildings. There is also a river to walk along.
Here are some photo's I have taken in Sandwich

mmmm I cannot seem to get the photo's straight never mind.

Here is my Cowes projuct so far.

This one will be framed to join the other ones in my bedroom

The second one is Follow Your Heart from SanMan Originals and is finished off in one of Sandy's lovely tucks

This on will join my other Valentine and Spring tucks on my ornament tree.

Tomorrow I will try and make another post showing you my progress on the Cowes project, I forgot to scan it tonight.

A Spot Of Tea

I have mean meaning to stitch this for a few years it is from Dragon Dreams. I am going to frame it for the kitchen.

I am going to spend a couple of hours stitching on my Cowes chart and then start on The Sweetheart Tree's Antique Wildflowers Heart. I have stitched a couple of these already and will have to see if I can find some more of them.

Flowers, Showers and a Wintry Mix

I have finished Bent Creek's Flowers and Showers, it was a nice stitching something spring like with all the cold weather we are having at the moment.

My friend Lisa sent me some DMC including the one I needed to finish Just Nan's Wintry Mix. Thanks Lisa.

I am now stitching A Spot Of Tea by Dragon Dreams, hopefully I will be finished by tomorrow and I must not forget to spend some time stitching on my AOY Cowes picture.

Happy Halloween

Another finish for Halloween, I have so many charts I want to stitch for Halloween this year so I am going to make sure I stitch some every month.

This is Happy Halloween and is a Sanman newsletter chart and frame.

I managed to get a fair bit done on the AOY Cowes picture. Now I have to stitch the white stripes on the ladies skirt. I am also stitching Bent Creeks Showers and Flowers, I should finish that one soon.
