I am off to a good start for the year, last night I completed Pirate's Creed. I am very pleased with it and stitched it very quickly but did get fed up of all the black writing in the end. Need to get some pirate fabric now to back it etc....
Sue Hillis Designs
Stitched on 28ct evenweave with DMC threads.
I have made a new list on my side bar to detail all my finishes in 2009 because I have never really stopped and counted all that I do, especially with all my cards etc, so this is number 1!!
Now for all you 'Johnny Depp' fans - here is an update on him........... looking good!!!
Still a lot to do though - his hair and top of head, it gets a bit slow going at times as I get bored with the similar colours, but I'll get there.
Sorry on my last post with my Vintage Heart on I forgot to put where the design was from. It was designed by Brenda Keyes and was featured in issue 208 of Cross Stitcher magazine.
I have also signed up for Gaynor's 2009 SAL, I had already decided to work on a UFO on Wednesday nights at my stitch club.... after some discussion with Shellie on MSN she encouraged me to sign up..... So I am going to work on my "Kendal Tea Shop" the Lilliput Lane kit that has been tucked away in my drawer again for ages!! Hope I can stick to it and finish this oldie!!
This morning I have been to IKEA, we are lucky to have one in Wednesbury which is about 12 miles from us. I treated myself to a standing lamp which has a spot light on and I have put it by the settee I sit on to stitch.... Oh I can see so much better. I also have been looking for a 5 x 5 inch square frame to put Stuart's 40th Birthday card in... it is a really awkward size to find .... but good old IKEA had a pack of 2 for only a couple of pounds!! So that is framed now too and standing on the little TV in our bedroom.
Here's my final WIP update, my Bent Creeks 'I Do', it is coming along nicely and I think I will go and stitch on some more of that now.
I only have 2 days left now before I return to work, I am also re starting my stitching rota on Monday so I will list that on my next post.
Have a good weekend,
