A Festive finiah

This is the kit I worked on when i moved cause it was the only one I could find that worked for me at the time!
It's Bent Creek's Happy holidays Zipper and it took me a week to do but some of those days I only got a few stitches in.

My internet at home goes live on the 31st but I have found out to add pics at the library i just need to know what picture number it is so I'll be working that out tonight so I can add my very, very late TUSAL pic.

No stitching to share today although I do have a finish but my camera cable has yet to appear in the unpacking.
I get internet at home on the 31st so until then I'm at the library or using Mum's laptop when I can.

Ann I've made time to stitch as I packed, moved and unpack to make sure I'm not so stressed even if it's only been for 10 minutes it's helped me keep calm and plan what order to do things in :)

I'm still about just very busy after moving house last week so I'm still finding homes for things and as yet I don't have internet.  But I have been doing a bit of stitching :)

More Baubles

When I started on the mad bauble idea a few weeks ago this was the first attempt but various reason's it wasn't going to work :(  I was all set to take it apart and reuse the beads but DBF happened to be here that day and said don't do that I'll have it I quite like it.   So I put it to one side thinking I needed to do something else with it and this is the result.

And now that we've had Krampus I can share the one I made for Mum and Dad as well.

Free to a good home

In the process of sorting out to move I came across a folder of charts from way back when I started stitching 20 years ago.
These are all from kits I stitched and I'd like to pass them on 

2, Teddy Bear

3, Box of Butterflies (this one hangs in my Mum's living room)

4, Rocking Horse

5, Owl

6, Summer (My first project on evenweave)

7, Old English Rose it does have a full alphabet

8, Swan and Flowers

You'll have to bear with me to post them out I may not get to the Post Office quickly and any that are left at the end of the week will end up in the recycling :(
