'Naughty' finished.

I finally finished my Mill Hill Ormament 'Naughty' tonight. I really enjoyed stitching it.


Here it is finished....................


And here it is with 'Nice'

I also stitched on my Wizard for the ILCS UFO Tuesday. It is really coming along now . I am enjoying stitching on it again. This evening, I started 'Frosty' which is another Mill Hill Ornament. There's not enough done on it to warrant taking a picture.

Clicking on both pictures will 'bigify' them lol.

Mid Week Update

I have concentrated mainly on my Mill Hill ornament 'Naughty'. It is very close to being finished now. I just have the beading and a bit of backstitch to do.


Tuesday I worked on my Midnight Enchanter for UFO Tuesday. I didn't get as much as I would of liked done but every stich counts! I am enjoying working on this again.


Clicking on both pictures will bigify them lol.

UFO Tuesday, Midnight Enchanter


(Click on photo to bigify)

On my Yahoo group, I resurrected UFO (unfinished object) Tuesday. The idea being that you pull an unfinished, forgotten work out, and put some stitches into it even if it's only 10 minutes.
I pulled out Midnight Enchanter by Dimensions and put a good two hours into it. I have to say I really enjoyed stitching on it.

Celtic Summer update


(Click on picture to bigify lol)

After several months, I finally have an update on her. I must be over three quarters of the way done on her now. The borders are fiddly with constant colour changes and beading but the skirt is now stitching up really fast. I was hoping to have her finished this year as I have sworn to myself that I am not to start anymore BAP's until I have finished at least two of the BAP's I have on the go. Needless to say I am very disapointed in myself this year as I haven't finished a single BAP! So when this one is finished and maybe the big dragon, then I will have the daunting task of what new big project to start lol.

I have also made good progress on the Mill Hill 'Naughty' ornament.

'Nice' finished

I finally finished my Mill Hill ornament 'Nice'. it wasn't through lack of not trying. Every time I sat down to stitch, something cropped up lol. I really love it. Now I need to get a good start on the 'Naughty' one. I absolutely adore the Mill Hill kits. I did this one aida and not the perforated paper and made it into a pillow ornament.

I have never really had a theme in my kitchen but I have a really nice sized kitchen come dining room and have decided to do a tea and coffee theme, mainly tea though. I love those one cup teapots that fits on top of a cup. I have one and use it all the time for my herbal teas. So I think the theme would be apt as I want to collect teapots. I have a couple of projects to do that are teapot themed which I hope to start in the near future after I have finished my ornaments.
