A couple of finishes etc....

Hi Blogger Friends,

This post will include my stitching completions since my last post.

This first completion was a UFO which I probably started about 3 years ago and had half done. I now need to  make it up into hanging ornament. The design is from an old issue of Cross Stitcher magazine.
Lizzie Kate Halloween Mystery Sampler I used the recommended threads and stitched this on Crafty Kitten Spring Crocus 28ct Linen. It was a joy to stitch.

Number 7 in the Framecraft series of the Twelve Days of Christmas - it needs putting in its frame and I need to get 8 - 12 done so that I have the complete set.

I completed the Seba Designs SAL from Facebook. I stitched this using Threadworx Morning Glories on Polstitches 28ct Snowstorm Jobelan and used Mill Hill Beads in 02026.

I also finally completed Bothy Threads Gorjuss Puddles of Love. Such a sweet design and an excellent kit. It is the first time I have used Bothy Threads and all I can say is the charting is excellent and you are provided with ample thread for the project.

My Main project over the last week has been Just a Moment Welsh Garden Blackwork. Below are before and after photos

Finally in the time period since my last post I have done some work on the ornaments below
The first in the picture is a Joan Elliott design from the giveaway diary in last years WOXS magazine and the robin is part of a Cross Stitcher cover kit, supposed to be made into card but I will make up as ornament.

Last night I made a start on a Little House Needleworks chart using the last piece of the September Ltd fabric from The Crafty Kitten - the rest was used on the Lizzie Kate stockings
Below are photos of what it should look like and where I got to last night. I have changed some of the threads to ones I had in my stash.
Over the next week my main focus is to make up the ornaments I have stitched over the last year or so
The photo above shows the majority of them, but not all of them. Should be  fun.

Thanks for reading my blog I hope you like my Stitchy efforts

Bye for  now
Take care



  1. I love evrey one od your cross stitch embroideries!!

  2. Lovely finishes. Look forward to seeing your ornaments made up.

  3. What an awesome update Lisa. Congrats on all the finishes. I love the Framecrafts designs. Can you tell me where I might find them. The pic with all the ornament finishes is awesome. I love the 3 santa ones in a row. Who are the designers. I would love to stitch them.


    1. Linda I am not sure you can get the version of the 12 days of Christmas that I have anymore. Framecraft do a set but they are in red and green and I believe you can get them from The three santas in a row. 2 are Prairie Schooler designs and the bottom one is a Joan Elliott design from a Design Library that was in the World of Cross Stitching magazine.

    2. Linda here is a link to the Framecraft kits currently available

  4. Lots of great stitching, lisa...but I love that little girl. She is so precious. That would be a great stitch for a charity quilt!

  5. lovely finishes :) i recently stitched puddles of love also x

  6. Everything looks fantastic! The Seba SAL is gorgeous.
