Winter Scene Christmas Drop Ornament

Another recent bead finish that I didn’t share!

This is as the post title says Winter Scene Christmas drop ornament and it’s from Threadabead

I’ve had the pattern for years and thought that while I’m in the mood to make ornaments I’d get it done


Apologies for it being a bit dark

This weeks stitching

I’ve finished a model this week and obviously I can’t share but I will when it’s released (if I remember!)

Once I’d finished it I picked Thimble fairy back up and made some decent progress on it.

 I also started a Harley Davidson Evolution for fella as a Christmas gift.

He knows I have the chart but not that the first few stitches have gone in.  Lucky for me the hours he works will make it quite easy for me to stitch it in secret

Penguins finish

Over the last couple of months this has been my travel project and yesterday I put the last stitches in.

It’s from Brittercup Designs and it’s a Christmas gift for Teejay who adores penguins

Slightly Dotty Snowmen

 A friend and I are having a SAL on Bothy Threads Slightly Dotty Snowmen each weekend.

Blogger has decided that no matter which way I upload the pics they have to be backwards!!

So this is after this last weekend

Weekend 2  (Sept 26/27) saw mine look like this 

And after weekend one Sept 19/20

Not being a fan of Aida I switched to silver lurex Linda, the last piece in my stash 😢

Let it snow ornament

 I’m going to try and play catch up over the next few days but no guarantee it’ll happen!

First up is a recent finish, the instructions where given by a lady named Dawn. M Turner in a Facebook group I’m in last year for the monthly SAL they do there, I think it was in November and I got round to it last month.

Crimson Poppies progress

Since finishing Persian Buttercup I’ve been working on my neglected Crimson Poppies.

I started these in 2008 and I have a feeling I’ve not worked on them since then!!

I’ve gone from this

To this

The last few days have been hot here so I’ve not been stitching much but I just realised that another reason is that I’ve had enough of these for now so they are going away and I’m going to treat myself to a new start 😁

Fingers crossed it’s not another 12 years before I work on them again

Persian Buttercup

Started 8 July and finished at lunch time today
Persian Buttercup from John Clayton, part of the shades of nature collection.

I’ve got several finishes to post from the last few weeks but I keep forgetting to get them done, fing Eros crossed I remember at some point

Have to say I’m not a fan of the new interface!
