A late Stroll update.

I have been stitching on 'A Late Stroll' over the weekend

This is one of the Cross stitch kits  from Yiotas Cross Stitch and will be lovely finished to go with my other winter pictures although it feels that cold here at the moment as spring seems to have vanished.

I must make sure that I stitch on this one at least once a week so will keep you updated on my progress.

A bit more stitching on my Party Cakes today I think.

More Party Cakes

Here is an update on my Country Cottage Needleworks Party Cakes

it is stitching up nicely.

I have also stitched a Prairie Schooler ornament.

not sure what it is called or even where I got it, it is a tiny chart and may have been given away with something.

Party Cakes

When I saw this Country Cottage Needleworks chart I just knew I had to stitch it, who does not like cake.

I have finished two of the cakes and almost finished a third, there are still two more to stitch and the borders but it is such a fun stitch.

We will be having lovely birthday cake tomorrow as Jack will be 15.  A lovely chocolate cake with lots of yummy chocolate icing.

Drawn Thread Spot of Summer

It has been a while since I stitched any of my Drawn Thread charts, I wonder why I left it so long?  I really enjoyed stitching this.

I even enjoyed doing the drawn thread work around the edges.  I have something cute I want to stitch next but I will be doing something else like this very soon.

Ooops I have just noticed I have forgotten to put the beads on the watermelon, they were supposed to be French knots but I wanted to use beads.  I must remember to add them before I make it into a little pillow.

She's finished

I have finished the lovely Amaryllis Pixie

She is so much prettier in real life, when I frame her I will post another picture and hopefully that will show her beading a bit better.  

What shall I stitch next?  I still need to get my 'Late Stroll' back out and stitch again but that will have to wait until after the school holidays.  I think I may stitch one of my Drawn Thread charts.  I have not stitched one of them for ages.

Easter Tuck and an almost finished pixie

Looks like I am getting back into my stitching zone again.

Here is an Easter Tuck

It is from the Sanman March newsletter, I did change the colours so I could use some of the Six Strand Sweets I had.

I have almost finished Nora Corbett's Amaryllis Pixie, hopefully I will finish the stitching and the rest of the beads in a couple of days.

I have already added the beads to her hair

Ooops just noticed one of the crystal drop beads is looking a bit off, I will make sure it is hanging properly when I take the next photo.
