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.


  1. So sorry about your grandfather.
    I hope you're able to find some comfort in your stitching. I especially love the kitties!

  2. I love the kitties too! But the first work is also beautiful and the saying on the last one is the truth! :-)
    I'm sorry about your grandfather, I hope he didn't had to suffer too much, and that you get enough time for your sadness.
    Because nowadays most people don't understand that you need time when you lose someone close to you. I just hope you'll be able to remember the good memories and smile again.
    Thinking of you,
