Two finishes and other stuff!

The weekend was really good for me where stitching is concerned. First of all I finished Seaside Sampler by The Sweetheart Tree.


Today, I finished it off into a needleroll. I am rather pleased with the result. I used silver ribbon just to give it the extra sparkle.


I then had a small finish which is Janlynns Somebunny To Love which is a small ornament kit.


And it does not stop there lol. I got my sewing machine out today and finished off the February Lizzie Kate Stamp properly.


And while I was on a roll, I also finished off Pansies Please by Just Nan which I finished stitching last year. I made it into a bell pull.


So as you can see, I did rather well over the weekend and I must say, I am quite pleased with myself! lol.

We finally got some proper snow! We are quite snowed in where we are and him indoors got sent home from work!


The bottom picture is of Lupi and we are having to force him to go outside to do his thing lol. He dids his paws in and sits down so I have to push him out the door with my foot lol.



  1. You weren't kidding when you said you had a good XS weekend. Fabulous finishes (love that needleroll!) and stitching! Too funny about Lupi and the snow. Glad you got some; hope you enjoy it!

  2. You had a wonderful weekend of stitching. Great job.... my favorite was the bellpull.

  3. Oh my, you were a busy girl this weekend. Fantastic finishes. ALL of them. I especially like the Lizzie Kate piece.
