I’ve been playing around with my blog template a little this weekend, I wanted to make my blog a little more personal to me, so I have made a banner across the top of my blog showing some of my favourite finishes of last year. I’m still tinkering a little so I’m sorry if things look a little wonky at the moment, please bear with me and I will get it sorted eventually. If you have any problems viewing my blog I’d be really grateful to hear from you.
I spent the start of this week dithering a little over what to stitch next whilst waiting for March 1st and the start of the Bramble and the Rose SAL. My mind was made up by the arrival of the chart for next ornament in the LHN SAL, called He’s A Flake. This one is my favourite to date. Stitched on Smokey Pearl Belfast linen using DMC threads. (sorry for the terrible photo).
I’ve joined an exchange I saw on Becky’s blog last week, which is a Pin Pillow exchange. I received my partner’s name yesterday, so had a sneaky look at her blog, and through her wish list and I’ve picked a design which she has said she likes, which I’ve seen on a few other blogs and which I wouldn’t mind stitching for myself some day too. I’ve ordered the chart and as soon as that arrives I will make a start on it, but won’t be able to post any pictures – just in case. The posting date is not until 1st April but I’m planning on starting it asap so that if I have a finishing disaster I have time to stitch it again if needs be LOL.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend, it really does go to quickly for my liking, but I’m planning on a very lazy evening as Phill is going to an open mike night where he plays pedal steel guitar, the perfect excuse to have an evening stitching on Carol Singers I think!
