Stitching update

I have been very remiss with my blogging of late. This has partly been down to no longer following the stitching plan I had set out but also I just have not felt like it.

Anyway I thought I better do a post and bring my stitching pics up to date.

So here goes: -

Firstly some finishes

These are the Flora McSample Stockings by Lizzie Kate I have stitched them on a piece of Crafty Kitten opal linen - this was Sept 2013 ltd piece and was 18 x 13 to start with. I have a piece of fabric left that I can make one more ornament- so I am pleased with this. I used Anchor floss for this project.
This is a chart from issue 197 of New Stitches magazine. I have used a scrap of Polstitches opal linen (I don't know what colour it is) and Polstitches Dragonfloss in Firefly for this card insert.

I have also worked on a couple of projects since my last proper post.

This is how far I got with the Lizzie Kate Halloween Mystery project - I will be working on this one again next week. It is stitched using the threads the chart came with on Crafty Kitten Spring Crocus linen.

Gorjuss Puddles of Love from Bothy Threads was a UFO, I have now completed all the stitching and just have the back stitching, french knots and embellishments to add.
I also fell in love with this design from a recent issue of WOXS, it is called Scandi Sampler and I am stitching it on opal aida and it uses two reds, a pink and white thread. I love the colour. This is how far I have got to with it.

I am also working on the Seba Designs (Facebook Group) SAL below is where I have got and for once I am up to date having completed part 3 this week.
I have stitched this on a piece of Polstitches Snowstorm 28 ct Jobelan using Threadworx thread in Morning Glories and Mill Hill 02026 beads
