Last night I finished up working on Elisa's robin piece.
I stitched the girl on the right hand side with the cat and gate aswell.  We are coming along nicely with this robin and are all sending well before our mail times, who knows, we may have them all back before Christmas!

Until next time, happy stitching

Its Ready To Go!

The travelling pattern that is.
I finished stitching on LHN - Summer Splendor today whilst watching some of the Olympic games.
My version is stitched on Stitches & Spice 32ct Belfast linen "Sand Storm" and I used some DMC alternatives and two Crescent Colours threads.  I'm not sure what this will be finished into as yet and for this reason I have deliberately left off the border for now.

Now if you would like to be the next stitcher to stitch this gorgeous chart please leave a note specifically stating that you are interested in the drawing for this chart in your comments. The only requirements are:

1. You must have an active blog
2. Please agree to stitch it promptly
3. Please pass it along to a fellow stitcher via a drawing on your blog
4. Please post your finish and the history of where the chart has travelled like this:

1. Kathy at "Kathy's Sit and Stitch"
2. Carol at "Stitching Dreams"
3. Lisa at "Lisa V's Lounge"

I will draw a name on Friday 10 August.  Dont forget that I am ahead in time here in Australia so try to get your comments in by Thursday so you wont miss out.

Until next time, happy stitching

Birdy for Lisa

My partner for the Stitching Between Friends exchange was my dear friend Lisa S, the theme for the exchange was Birds.
I had soo much fun stitching this one for Lisa, its such a fun design.  I picked out Lisa's favourite colour purple, chose a dark and a light coloured hand dyed thread and a green one for the flower stalk and this is how the little fellow turned out.

The chart is a freebie online over at Aliola's blog, the chart is in black and white so you choose whatever colours you want to use.

I decided on a tin topper as the finish, inside it is padded in a purple gingham and Lisa can place anything she likes in there.  I am pleased that Lisa loved him when he arrived at her home.
Until next time, happy stitching
