Sampler Girl finish & TUSAL

Today I actually have a stitching finish to share with you (once you have all recovered from the shock lol)

It’s taken a little longer than anticipated, but I have just finished Northanger Abbey by The Sampler Girl

I also have some WIPs to share with you.  Firstly Masquerade, I was going great guns on this design until I ran out of the Onyx thread.  Luckily Sheila sent me some that she had left over from this design to tide me over until the skein I ordered arrives.

And finally I’ve worked a little this weekend on Jardin Prive’s Sampler Aux Bouquet.  I’m stitching this over 2 on 40 count linen, using one thread of DMC. Apologies for the stray thread lol

I’ve done more stitching this last week or so than I have for the last month or so 😉 and as a result I have added quite a lot to my TUSAL container.


Weekend update

Lots of pictures to share with you again this weekend, so apologies for the long post. I really must try harder to find some time to blog during the week but that’s far easier to say than actually do!

One thing I haven’t got any progress pictures of this week is my craft room. Phill has been very busy at work, and is also suffering with man flu at the moment so my room looks exactly the same this weekend as it did last weekend. But, his work has been rather quiet in the last few months, so I really don’t mind one bit, I would much rather him be working somewhere else and getting paid LOL.

From Tuesday evening, Carriage House Samplings SAL night. I am really loving this design, so much so that once I have stitched Molly I intend on stitching the other girls in the series.


From Wednesday evening, The Sampler Girl SAL night. Again, loving this design and it was very hard not to carry on stitching for the rest of the week. The first thing I will do next Wednesday is stitch some legs on that poor sheep!


The rest of the week has been spent stitching on the February Challenge from Needlecraft Haven forum, which I can’t share with you until reveal day at the end of the month, and working on Ribbon Sampler. This picture really shows up the colours well


My lunchtime ornament is coming along nicely, but silly me left it at work so I can’t share a picture with you at the moment.
