two updates and an oldie

No new finishes but some updates and also one I finished years ago.  I found a CD with photo's of pieces I finished ages ago so I will show you some of them. Hopefully the pictures are OK the battery on my camera needs charging again so had to take these on my phone.

First Faye Whittaker's 'Cowes'

and now the Country Cottage Needlecraft's 'Summer at the Shore'

and finally one I finished a few years ago.  Mirabilia's Queen of Peace, she is so beautiful.  I have all the other queens and even started the Winter one.  I must finish the Winter one soon and also start on the others.

Winter Grows On you

I have finished the Waxing Moon's Winter Grows On You, such a fun stitch.

Another update on my Faye Whittaker's Cowes project.

I finished the little boy in brown and started on the top part of the lady with the umbrella.  I think there are 12 children and two adults altogether on this one.

My next project to run alongside 'Cowes' is Country Cottage Needleworks 'Summer at the Shore'

Hopefully this happy summer chart will encourage the summer to come back.  Last week it was so hot and this week it is almost winter outside!

Just a few more things to do and then I can stitch a bit.

A few things to show you today

I have three photo's for you today.  The first two I meant to post on Monday but time ran away with me and I forgot sorry.  The first is my Seaside Cottage finished.

I just need to find an anchor charm and a seagull one then it will be finished.

Next an update on my Faye Whittikar Cowes

I have been working on the two seated boys, they are almost finished.

Next is my currant project  from Waxing Moon

I had forgotten about this one I brought it with Warm Winter Wishes which I finished into a flat fold so I may do the same with this one.

Winter Charmer

Here is a very quick stitch, a tiny pillow ornament from one of the Sanman newsletters.  I have a few more of these to stitch, the pillows are only about 3 1/4 inches and I cannot get a good photo.  

I'm also stitching one of Elizabeth's Designs cottages The Seaside Cottage

I live by the sea so love seaside themes.  Mind you it was a bit windy today walking along the coast with my dog Charlie this morning.  A big change from the last few days when it has been way too hot.

Still working on the Cowes project, I have not forgotten it.

I have not stitched anything for Halloween for ages.  I like to have lots of decorations up at Halloween and love stitching Halloween designs especially the ones from Sanman Originals.  This is one of Sandy's cute Halloween tucks.  I used some DMC variations thread I had in my stash for the PumpCats and I think I may get some more of this thread for more Halloween stitching.


I'm still stitching on my Cowes and will update you often about it.
