More finishes.

We have been so lucky here yesterday with the weather, so sunny, just hope that wasnt our summer this year..  I have finished a few things this month.  First was a kit called 'All Loved Up' my DD bought for me last Mothers Day, it was great fun to stitch with all the bright colours.

The second is something I stitched quite a few years ago and just this last week finished it into a cushion. So glad I found a use for it.  I also had a birthday stitchy treat from DH a Victoria Sampler Chart 'Linda's Ort Bag'  was a little tricky to finish, didnt read the instructions clearly, but I love how its turned out, its great to have sat there to collect all my ORT (Mum that means 'Old Ratty Tails, bits of thread)  I also got a cute little gadget to make little flowers out of scraps of fabric, its fantastic, they are so easy to make and quick too.  
I have also stitch a little on my Mary Wigham and finished this months 80 sts SAL.
Hope you all have had plently stitching time.  xxx

Two finishes

 Hi Everybody, hope you all had a wonderful Easter, it was very cold here in Ireland but my poor family had it much much worse in the UK, hope you have all thawed out over there now.

I have been stitching away this last month but only two finishes to show.  I managed to finished my March and April Page for Needlework Masters the first is a chart from 'Four Seasons Quaker Sampler’ designed by Stitches and Spice and the second is a cake I made for myself, as its my Birthday this week and was taken from 'Buttercream Frosting Sampler' by Primrose Needleworks.  I have also been working on a Maia design entitled 'All Loved Up'  I have only a small amount to do on this design and hopefully will get it finished very soon.

I was also very excited to win a giveaway The Musing Badger which I am very very pleased about, I won the chart and threads for a Tempting Tangles design 'Creation'.  I am so looking forward to start stitching that one and am hounding Mr Postie as we speak, although its a bit early yet to get here from the USA.  Ruth is also having another givaway on her blog for a gorgeous Rose Chart, so pop over for a chance to win.
Lastly I had to show you all that my 'Confetti of Hardanger' designed by Abi  made the cover of 'The Stitch Specialists group, very pleased I am too. 

Keep warm everybody and stay safe, Spring is around the corner, hopefully. xxx
