Once a month....

It appears my postings are rapidly becoming monthly postings which, I suppose, is better than no postings at all! Life is full and busy and I am quite content with that. I do my best to fit in stitching where I can and so I am pleased to announce two finishes this week! 

The first is My Sheep Hear My Voice by LHN stitched in the given threads on Lambswool linen. 

This was a delight to stitch and it only took me about a week to complete it. I actually enjoyed the Lambswool linen too as much as I have moaned in the past about Permin fabrics being too scratchy. I guess I will stitch on anything. 

Last night I had a very happy celebration as I finally put in the last stitch of Quaker Christmas by Bygone Stitches. This was one of my new year Crazies from 2012! I hadn't stitched on this in such a long time so I started back on it last year and it really came together quite quickly once I set my mind to it. I used Threadworx thread in Wine Castle Red and a green one which i can't remember the name of. The gold is the called for one Olde Gold I think. The fabric is 36ct Vintage Light Exampler by LL which has a gorgeous orangy hue to it. 

So what to stitch next????? I could start something new as I have kitted up a whole load of charts using fabric from my stash. Or, I could be very good and get on with some long outstanding wips. I think I would like to finish the Moira Blackburn one and the Multiplication sampler I started as another Crazy 2012. I will let you know. Happy stitching all.
