New Stash

Last week I bought some fabric from Mel Munsell (Colours of the Outback). I just fell in love with these colours
This one is called Pinkish Hue, 28ct Opal Lugana
This next piece is called Golden Night, on 28 ct Opal Lugana
And this last Piece is called Spooky on 28 ct Opal Linen

Fuchsia Fae WIP

I started this lovely piece yesterday afternoon, I added the beads and backstitching this morning. As you can see I only have the Flowers around her to go, am hoping she will be finished by tomorrow.

I am stitching this piece on an oddment by Crafty Kitten, it is 27 ct Linda.

Snowman HD

Here is my lovely cute, little snowman, that I stitched up in about 3/4 hours last night. I just fancied something small to work on and here he is. I just adore Snowmen, he was just brilliant to stitch up. I haven't worked on Sabrina much as we have not been in too much lately.

Hubby has been on Holiday for a week and has one more to go, so we have been out and about loads, and have finally finished school clothes and shoe shopping, after having to go and change the trousers for Mark as I had bought the wrong colour grrrrrr. I am going to be away from Sunday thro til Thurs, as we are going up to hubby's Mums for a few days, then home and get them ready for starting their new Schools on the 5th and 6th Sept.

Guy is of to a local School starting on Monday the 5th and Mark is going Private on the 6th, typical when you want them to go to the same School they choose to go to diff schools lol. Never mind it will do them good not to be with each other 24/7.

Thanks for all your wonderful comments on Sabrina, I had hoped to get her finished this month, but it will have to be next month, once this lot are back to School and Work.

I have some new Stash arriving soon from Aus and US, can't wait will show pics one they arrive.

Another update on Sabrina

Here is my next installment of Sabrina, she has taken me a week since the last pic. I haven't stitched on her solidly for a week, as I have been out and about with the kids as usual lol. But I am hoping to get this top section finished by the end of next week.

Thanks for all you previous comments, they sure keep me going. I am hoping to have her finished by the end of the month or sometime in September, then I shall be onto Pompejian Garden.

Sabrina update

This is where I got to with Sabrina as of last night, beads added to Glove and Bodice of Dress, am hoping to get her to the half way point by Friday. Then onto Pompeji for a few days.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments on Bluebell she was a dream to stitch. I only have 10 of my Challenge pieces left to get done by the end of the year, but that could well be a feat and a half lol.

I had to remove a couple, one has to be restarted and QS Fragile Heart has gone away for a while, for some reason I just cannot get my head around HAEDs, and struggle after making a good start. Maybe one day I will get one done, but not just yet. I guess it doesn't help with having about 90 colours in the majority of them.
