A big thank you to all of you who
have left lovely comments on my previous posts.

My April fairy is all stitched & made up!
Fairy April From Lili of the valley

Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric from Sew It All Cloud Spring Sky colour Using DMC threads, 2 over 1

I have even managed to find some spare time
for a touch of finishing up...

Flat fold finish

Using yellow polka fabric and sparkly red trim from my stash


March Freebie - Tralala

Happy Easter Peeps!

No chocolates from me here but
I do have cute bunnies in their little egg cups

Design was available from Tralala
as a freebie pattern with any order placed

Stitched on 14 count Aida fabric from a Sew It All grab bag,
so I unfortunately have no idea of the exact colour.
Using recommended DMC threads, 2 over 1

It appears my little finishing bug has finally returned from its break...

So the little bunnies have been looked after and finished off as a mounted flat ornament
using red polka fabric & white trim from my stash.

Wishing you all a Happy Easter!

Hello Peeps, Well in between all those small monthly projects that I seem to be focusing on this year, I do try to find time here and there to work on other pieces... And so, I finally manage to come round to blogging about this small finish I did a little while ago Do more of what makes you happy From Abby Rose Designs

Apologies with my pictures, the sun was out in force at the time and unfortunately made them a bit too bright & shiny :)
A sweet & quick design, very much in tone with the Lizzie Kate style Worked on Zweigart cotton evenweave, 32 count Brittney, granite colour 2 over 2 using listed DMC threads

Yet to be finished into something - That is when "stitching" bug decides to leave some room/inspiration for "finishing" bug to strike! -
