A New Start - QS Spirit of Winter Robin

I had a new start on Sunday night, this is 2 days worth of Stitching on HAED QS Spirit of Winter Robin.

This is what it will look like, once it is finished.  It will be a sow process, but I am determined to actually start and finish my first HAED.  I no longer have the old original HAED WIPs, so this is now my first ever HAED start.  I got rid of the ones I had started, I was lucky I was able to save what was left of the fabric, as not much had been stitched luckily enough.

I have a group on FB set up called WIP/UFO Slaying Challenge for 2016, I am hoping to get a few good finishes in, and ever time I have a couple of finishes, I will treat myself to a brand new start.  In fact I am going to be naughty, and have a New Year, New Start, not sure what I will start I have a few that I want to have a go at.

The choices are:  Spring Beauty Princess, White Winter Santa, Dress Makers Daughter or At the Met, too much choice, plus I have a ton of others, like the 6 other Bewitching Pixies, which I can't wait to do he he.  Think it will be put them in a box, and get the boys to do a lucky dip sometime.

Little House Needleworks HDs

Wooohooo, I seem to have my stitch bug back, they are only small starts and finishes, but I wanted to get my bug back.  The first one is called Peppermint Twist - Stitched on Crafty Kitten Fabric, June 2014 Ltd Ed Opal, 32ct Murano.

The second one is called Season of Love, stitched on the same fabric, It is such a big piece, that I am doing lots of snowmen/christmas stitchy bits on it, then will make into ornies, or get framed one day.

Not sure what I will be stitching next, it will be one of my WIPs I think, but not quite sure which one yet.  Someone suggest St Petersburg, but I may try and finish my cousins Tiger first.  But first things first, I have an infinity scarf for my mum to finish in time for Christmas.  I am also hoping to start ^ Fat Men, by Lizzie Kate.

Hopefully I can get back on track with blogging, I have missed it, and I'm hoping that 2016, will be a fantastic year.  Out with the Old and in with the New.  

Before I forget I have had 2 pieces of awesome news this week.  A friend is making me a knitting basket, and I can't wait to receive it, she is having one made for herself, and her lovely husband has said he will make me one, feeling really humble and blessed.  My next piece of news, I have been searching for the Freesia Connections in Blue, by John Clayton, sold by Heritage Crafts, today I was told I could have the chart, but in chart form only for £7.99, but a few minutes later they let me know that they didn't have the chart in a package, no picture, and now other details, so they are now sending me the chart for FREE.  I wonder what the third good news will be.

I have had such a horrid start to the week, with a migraine, which made me very ill during the day, it tok several hours for me to be able to keep food or drink down.  But now feeling better, and now looking forward to my gifts.

Come back soon, I hope to be posting regularly from now on.  I know it's been a while, but now I'm a single woman and slowly getting life back on track, I will be here as much as possible.

Thank you for looking xx

Crochet WIP & Finish

This first piece of crochet is a table runner I am making for me, to go over the Christmas Table Cloth, I have.  It is growing slowly and nicely, and hoping to get it finished over the next week.
I made myself an infinity scarf, the colour is called Walnut, I just love it, and it keeps me nice and warm.

I haven't stitched in a while, so hoping to kick of 2016 with a cross stitch wip and hopefully early January finish.  I would love to get my stitchy bug back xxx

Oh Blimey it's been a while

Hi Everyone

Sorry i haven't been on here for a while, but once the New Year starts I will be back in earnest, I haven't stitched since September, and before that it was a fair few months.  I am very much into crochet and knitting at the moment, but I will be back and hope to be moe with it.  It's been a very busy year.

Take care and Have a great Christmas and New Year

Kathy xx
