Last chance to enter my GiveAway

You can win this pattern on my Instagram here, just leave a comment.  Will announce a winner on Monday

Cross Stitchy Finish

I once started this one for someone who was getting married... but then the wedding was off... So I've put it away somewhere.
I'm trying to clear away some of my unfinished projects and I came across this one. Took me a couple of weeks to finish, had a lot of frogging to do.  I think this project was cursed, or maybe I shouldn't stich when I'm tired...

Lizzie*Kate - A Good Marriage
32ct Lambswool linen (Wichelt Imports)
Crescent Colours
Sampler Threads

Thinking about my next project now... maybe some crochet untill the next installment of "The Pumpkin Passport", rather impatiently waiting for that one ;)

You can now also follow me on Facebook, every follow is greatly appreciated.

'till next time x

Stitchy update and a GiveAway

Sometimes life gets in the way of everything.  And this year didn't really start all that great with the passing of my grandfather.  He was 83 and meant the world to me.

Stitching or crocheting was not a priority really. But I'm getting there.  Here's what I've been up to

I've signed up for the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery SAL.  I'm enjoying these little installments, London and Paris, two of my favourite cities.  I'm planning on going to London in October for the Harry Potter Play.

Next there was this kit with kittens.  I think it's by RTO, I bought it at a craft fair a couple of years ago.  It was somewhere in my WIP pile.  But now it's finished :).  I did chance the fabric to linen, since I don't really like working on Aida.

I have got a similar kit with little dogs as well.

I needed to get more paper bobbins to store my DMC fibers, so I've ordered some online.  And got a bit carried away, and ordered a Lizzie Kate chart and overdyed floss as well.  I've fnished stitchin this one in just 2 evenings.

As for the Giveaway, I'm giving away this Lizzie Kate pattern on my Instagram, so head over there, follow me, find the right post and give me a comment.  You might win this one.  Only got 2 comments, so you have a fair chance ;).

If you don't have Instagram and you still want this pattern you can leave a comment.  I'll see what I can do.

This link should take you to the right post.
