As promised, here is a picture of the lovely gifts Margaret made for me. They are just so pretty! Very professionally finished as well. They look too good to use lol, but I will as I don't have a pin cushion!
Yesterday, I had great fun in deciding what project I was going to do in the 'special project' SAL on Friendly Stitchers. I opted for 'Midnight Enchanter' by Dimensions as I have had this chart and charms for five years now. I already have the fabric which is hand painted cashel linen in 'Night' by Sugar Maple Fabrics on 28ct. The rest of the floss and Kreinik I ordered from yesterday, which turned up this morning! (Don't cha just love sewandso!) I just have to wait and find out when the SAL will start.
I've been working on Pansy Angel which at the moment, seems like I'm not getting anywhere with as I am stitching the wings which is mostly white. But I know I am when I refer back to photos in progress that I have taken. In the evenings I have been stitching on a bookmark for Colins mum which she picked out for me to do for her lol. It's 'Poppy Meadow' Textile Heritage. I'm have done about three quarters of the stitching so far.

Today I managed to do some stitching on my SAL on I love Cross Stitch group. I was pleased with what I did today as I have neglected it over the last three Wednesdays or so. It seems to be going so slowly though. I guess it's where it's on 18ct aida!
I was very pleasantly surprised with some stitched gifts from Margaret! They are lovely and I will get them photographed asap so I can put the piccys up on here for every one to see!

I've had this Blog account for ages and never bothered posting up till now! I saw Margarets Blog and thought it was about time I did mine lol.
I mainly want to keep this one for my stitching and just thought it was good to have a dedicated blog for it.
I am stitching on several things right now but my favourite is Pansy Angel by Black Swan which Wanda sent me as part of my Secret Sister parcels in the second round on I love cross stitch group.
I have included a picture of it.
