A couple of little stitches

I still have loads to share, and promise to get 'a round to it'.  The weather has not been so good here over the weekend - it's really dull so not good light for photography, but here's some I took earlier.

Country Garden
by Blackbird Designs
stitched on 36ct Antique Gold Edinburgh linen by Silkweaver

This is the second time I've stitched this, the first time was for an exchange and I made it into a pinkeep.  I think I'll probably finish this the same way.  I am now selling the pattern if anyone is interested - just get leave me a comment.

First Snow
by Praiseworthy Stitches
stitched on unknown fabric (28ct I think)

This was a nice quick stitch, again I'm now selling the pattern if anyone is interested.


A bit of knitting has been done here too.  This is lovely yarn, such lovely colours and really sparkly, but that doesn't show up.  It is a shawl/scarf.  It knits up as a triangle you just keep increasing, and then cast off loosely, it then becomes more like a narrow scarf. (it's really stretchy).  It came with these wonderful glass heart beads to put on the ends.  However, it's not for me.  My sister fell in love with it at Easter, when we visited the Cotswolds.  So I said I'd knit it for her if she bought one.  If you ever visit Bourton-on-the-Water you must call in the craft shop - Bourton Basket, where we purchased this.

Thank you all for taking the time to comment on my UFO, I've not stitched on it again yet, I need to get a frame out to put it on.  I will continue with 2 strands for a little bit and then decide on what to do.

I really need to de-stash, and I meant to say in my last post - as I am clearing out 100's of magazines - just let me know if there are any you are looking for and if I have them you are welcome to them as long as you send me an SAE.

Thanks for visiting.

Chris. xx

It is so hard for me to get rid of stuff. I really admire that you are purging your stash.
