Love Grows and a Pine Pillow

I have finished the first part of Tonia's (Oakhaven Designs) SAL 'Love Grows'. I changed the colours to some SSS ones that I had. I used Wine a Bit, Very Berry and Mulberry Wine. I used DMC 844 instead of black.

I also made another pillow this time minus the frill. LOL

I managed to get some pine cone fabric to match the design. I Pine For You was a chart from the from SanMan Originals Christmas SAL.

Iris pillow and Snow

Feeling rather pleased with myself I have completely finished another item. I have made Sandy's Iris into a pillow. I love the colours but that ruffle took so long...........the next pillow I make will just be a plain pillow.

I have also finished Sandy's (SanMan Originals) Sew Snow. I would like to make this into a pillow as well but I cannot find any fabric I like to go with it.

I must stitch a little of The Promise but I also want to finish a couple more items while I have the sewing machine out. Who know's when it will see the light of day again. Also I have promised Tonia (Oakhaven designs) that I will start her currant SAL.

Don't faint but....................

I have actually finished something, not just stitched it but finished it into a scissor keeper. I am so pleased with this and it was so quick to make up.

I decided that as the sewing machine was out I would finish something else as well. I picked a stitched piece and started to make a pillow. It is taking so long I'm afraid my sewing machine and I are not the best of friends. I will finish it hopefully tomorrow.

More of The Promise and a Spring Keeper

I have not stitched much on The Promise but I had to stitch myself a scissor keeper as my lovely beaded scissor fob broke. No batteries in the camera so a scanner picture again.

I decided to stitch The Spring Scissor Keeper by Drawn Thread. It was such a quick stitch and hopefully tomorrow I will make it into the keeper for my scissors.

I am also stitching Sandy's Sew Snow. This is so cute but I am not going to show it to you until I have finished stitching it.

The Promise by email

I have just found out that I can update my blog by email! Let's hope this works as it has taken me ages to work out how to insert a photo into an email.

This is an update of The Promise by Shepherds Bush.

I could not get it all in the scanner so the top part is missing this time. I'll have to make sure I use the camera next time.

Fingers crossed this works.

Well it almost worked, just the photo did not show, not sure what I did wrong I will have to look into it later. I have added the photo now.

More Promise and a Garden Tuck

Well Easter is finished and all the eggs are eaten, well except two and they are Jack's. He always makes his last as long as possible.
Here is an update on my Shepherds Bush The Promise Sampler.
I am hoping I will have a bit more time for stitching this week but I did manage to fit in
another tuck from Sanman Originals.
I do love these they are quick to stitch and look great. This one is called The Garden Tuck.

The Promise

I said I was in sampler mood. This one is called The Promise by Shepherds Bush. Not a very good scan the colours are not right.

I have not had a lot of time for stitching as the boys have been home and we have taken Charlie our Labrador out for walks sometimes along the tracks by the farms. Charlie loves these walks and it keeps the boys off The World of Warcraft. I'm sure they would spend all day on there if they could. LOL

Follow the Needle

I do not know where the time goes it's been more then a week since I showed you anything. I have finished Just Nan's Follow The Needle. I do love stitching samplers and I think I will do another one now. I promise to show you it before I finish otherwise it will be ages before I blog again. Especially as the Easter holidays start today, not sure how much stitching time I will get with the boys home.
Here is Follow The Needle, hopefully I can find a frame for it soon as it will look great in my bedroom.
