Evalina's Give Away!

Evalina has a fabulous give away on here blog. Click HERE to go look!

A Finish and Midnight Enchanter

I finally finished my Prairie Schooler 'Autumn Leaves' last Sunday. It's not the kind of thing I usually like to stitch but I liked the words. It looks wonky where it came off the Q Snaps. It needs ironing and pulling into shape ;p


I have a challenge going with Evalina where UFO's are concerned. The challenge is to finish my two UFO's before Evalina finishes 'Bless the House', 'Provence' and a UFO of her choice. The one that completes the challenge first, gets sent something from the other person.  My first one to finish is my Midnight Enchanter by Dimensions. Here is a before picture from when I last stitched on it:


And here's one after I finished on it on Sunday night:

I concentrated on the blue frock bit, here's a close up:


I'm going to try and stitch on it as much as possible. When this is finished and I mean 'when' lol, the second UFO will be my Celtic Summer. I am also trying to finish a crochet blanket for my third granddaughter of the year, who is due in the next two weeks or so!

So dear stitchers, please keep me motivated by your wonderful comments, they really do help and keep me stitching on it!

Two Finishes and a RAK

It's been a couple of week's since I last blogged. Health has been a big issue for me. I had to have an Upper G.I Endoscopy and the news wasn't fantastic. I have to see a specialist but in the mean time I am seeing my Dr this Wednesday for my new tablets. I hope they work and help!

ILCS Virtual Stitch In
I found a piece I finished a year or two ago and decided to finish it off properly. I added some embellishments to it as well.


It's an old freebie by Barbara Ana. I used DMC glow in the dark for the white ghost and the cobwebs. I am pretty pleased with the way it has turned out.

Another Finish.

I finished my October Lizzie Kate stamp. I think this one is my favourite so far.


I don't think I will bother with the November one. Not this year anyway. It's my least favourite....it has a turkey on it and seeing we don't celebrate Thanks Giving here in the UK, there's no need to rush to do it.

I have nearly finished my Praire Schooler sampler as well. Not to many stitches left to put in. Not done any on my Sunday piece for the last few Sundays....my Lizzie Kate 'It's a Jingle Out There'.

Last but not Least

I got a fabulous RAK from Shelley on my ILCS group. It couldn't have come at a better time.

From Shelley

Needless to say, that I have eaten the chocolate already!
Again, thank you so much Shelley, well appreciated! The card and ornament are on my seasonal shelf :)
