As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

My favourite piece

So todays question is...
Day 6: What is your favourite piece that you’ve stitched?
It has to be my Irises by Sheila Hudson. I love stitching floral designs and especially ones this vibrant. It took me a while to do as it got shelved for other things including a couple of long stitchy breaks. I finished it last year and i've yet to frame it. (such a shame) but as soon as i've finished the Hydrangea they will be framed in matching frames.
I have another design I love which is a blackwork design called Art Nouveau window. There are 2 other simular designs that i'm hoping to get at the November NEC Hobbycrafts show as it was a lovely stitch and I think it looks fab. it now hangs in my hall in a silver frame which with the blue mount, I think compliments it very well.

I was a very lucky girl today as Mum brought me a pair of dressmaking shears. I went in for some beads and ribbon for a design i'm doing and whilst I was browsing the buttons (another addiction) Mum got me them. She had to wait until I was away from the counter as I would have talked her out of it. It's fab having a Mum who crafts too as she understands the need for stash and good equipment! Thank you Mum!!!xxx

Hope everyone has had a lovely day. I'm off to get sorted in the house ready for my evening stitchy session. Thanks for reading and happy crafting.
