Secret stitch

Earlier this year I bought a gently used chart off a Facebook selling site of a Harley after checking with my fella that he liked it and told him I’d stitch it for him next year.

Early in October I had the bright idea of stitching it for him in secret for Christmas year and started it and then promptly didn’t do any more on it for a few weeks!   The last 10 days or so I’ve made sure I’ve worked on it for a few hours every day while he’s at work and I’ve made steady progress on it.

This is how far I got up to Friday evening and I’m hoping to get the back end finished off before he’s off at the end of this week.

Baby’s first Christmas ornament

 This year as you know we have an new family member, this handsome little guy Elliot so to mark the occasion of his first Christmas I made him a star.

The pattern is from Hookin’ to the beat 

I’m one of her test beaders and when this one was posted I jumped at the chance to do it.  I’ve also put in my claim to test next years version of it ready for the bump that’s on his way 🙂

Santa’s secret book

I finished this a few weeks ago and it took me until a few days ago to get round to taking pics of it!
The design is from Threadabead

I added the hanger so I can put it on the tree

Slightly dotty snowmen finish

 I failed in my weekly update on these 🙁 but at least I’ve finally remembered to add the finished project!

Loved stitching these with a fiend and we have our next project planned but the kits are out of stock currently so until then we are doing ornaments from this years JCS ornament issue.

If your tempted to stitch these guys yourself, be quick as the kit is being discontinued in January

Remembrance Day


They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them
