Coffin break and a Wildflower Garden

Another spooky banner for my boys. This is another banner kit from the SanMan Originals newsletter it is called 'Time for a Coffin Break'. It is going to look great with our other decorations on Halloween.

I have also started Wildflower Garden by Drawn Thread. I will try and add an update once a week, I will be stitching a few small pieces as well as this, my boys have a list of pieces they want stitched for Halloween and Christmas and there are a few I want to stitch for others as well.

Bibbity Bobbity Boo

This is so cute and so quick to stitch. The ghost at the top and the one on the stitching came with the chart. It is one of the charts from last years SanMan Originals Halloween newsletter.

I have a few more of these and will make them in between my next sampler. I am going to stitch Drawn Threads The Wildflower Garden.

I have also popped the Ghost I stitched the other week into his tuck

Another Bank holiday this weekend, not sure what we will be doing yet, hopefully something nice to take our minds off the Dentist on Tuesday. Just the six month check up so hopefully all will be well for us all.

Finaly Finished

I have finally finished The Promise and stitched the beads and charms on. Not a very good photo sorry but hopefully you can see it well enough.

Now I just have to find a frame for it. I do love these Shepherds Bush Samplers and have a few more in my stash. Next I am going to stitch another Halloween chart for my boys.

Santa Star

I stitched a banner for the Santa Star that I stitched about five or six years ago (I told you I have loads of unfinished pieces). LOL Not perfect but I did not have a pattern for it so I am feeling a bit pleased with myself. LOL I cannot remember who the designer is I know it is from one of the ornament issue's, I will have to get them out and have a look.

I will not bore you with another picture of the Promise WIP but hopefully it will be finished in a couple of days. I'm not going to be doing any stitching tomorrow as I want to scrap a few pages for Jack's book.

Finished Love Grows

I have finished Tonia's Love Grows SAL. I think I will finish this as a pillow I just need to find some fabric to go with it.

I think I may add my initials at the bottom in the middle.

I also stitched a bit more of The Promise, not as much as I would have liked but hopefully I can finish the stitching on this piece in a day or two. Then it will be time for the beads and charms. Also time to start thinking about what I am going to stitch next or maybe I will finish another one of my stitched pieces into an ornament.

The Promise, Christmas and Halloween

Not really done much stitching this week. Over the Bank Holiday we went out a few times. On Sunday we went to Dover Castle and Monday to Reculver. But I did manage a little bit on The Promise by Shepherd's Bush.

Not very much stitching left on this one and then it will just be the beads and charms to be added.

Made one of my pieces of Christmas stitching into an ornament. This is a SanMan Originals board members chart.

I also stitched a piece for Halloween, another SanMan Originals board members chart. Just need to find a grey star to add just above the ghosts head and a tuck.

I must go and start on the second part of Tonia's SAL.
