I managed to get some stitches into my Lizzie Kate piece whilst I was away for the long weekend. It will look better once his eyes and mouth are done lol.

No point in doing a picture update on my Autumn sampler as not much done to it since the last picture. I have also started my October Lizzie Kate stamp but again, not enough done to warrant a picture taken.

We went away to Stratford Upon Avon which is Shakespeare's birthplace and we saw his actual house. Photo's can be seen here on my blog or my blogger Blog if you prefer http://amethyst-lady.blogspot.com/

A Finish and Update

Yesterday I started and finished my ornament for my groups blind ornament exchange on ILCS. I am pleased how it turned out as I haven't stitched one of these little kits before.


I have nearly finished my Prairie Schooler Autumn Leaves Sampler.


And last but not least is my Lizzy Kate Christmas piece which I stitch on at my club on Sundays.


I have just started on his scarf so he looks a bit odd at the moment.

Give Away

I will be drawing the winner on Saturday!

Update and Give Away


I have been working all week on my Prairie Schooler Autumn Leaves Sampler.


It looks a bit wonky as it came off my Q Snaps and I didn't pull it straight for the photo.
I am about half way through it now.

Sunday I went to my stitching group. I didn't get too much done on my LK piece but every stitch counts!


At least it should be finished in time to be framed for Christmas lol.

Give Away.

6 Skeins of Polstitches  Over Dyed Dragon Floss is up for grabs.


To be in with a chance of winning, please leave a comment on this post. I will announce the winner next week.
These are beautiful threads to stitch with. I will put all the names into a bowl and let one of the twins pull a name out. Good luck to all who enter.

Bookmarks, New Stash and Stitching!

Bookmark Exchange

First I would like to thank Denise in Saudi Arabia for my lovely package on the ILCS Bookmark Swap.


The bookmark is lovely and my photo does not do it justice. It is finished off so well. I love the floss and can't wait to try the herbal teas as that is what I drink mostly :)

This is the package I sent to Judi. I used the photo she took as I did not take one of all the package just the bookmark.


New Charts

I don't buy new stash very often especially this year as my stitching has been very up and down. I had some money for my Birthday and treated myself to four Lizzie Kate Charts and one by Prairie Schooler.

My tastes in charts have really changed. I would never have considered doing this sampler before. I think a lot of the time, the picture on a chart or how it is displayed on online shops do not do it justice and it isn't until you start stitching it that you realize how nice they really are.

Stitching Update

I couldn't wait to start the Prairie Schooler chart and I am stitching it on 28ct although the recommended was 32 ct, which I didn't have in white. It will just be a little bigger.


I am into seasonal stitching at the moment and enjoying every stitch.

My other update is a Lizzie Kate piece.


It is stitching up lovely. I am stitching on him now for the two hours I am at my stitching club on a Sunday. As long as it's finished for Christmas as we tend to talk a lot lol.

And Finally!

I have not forgotten about the give away. I will be putting it on my blog very soon. I am in the process of sorting something out for it.
