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.

urm, witty title, witty title, come on think girl...

well yesterday was a good stitching day with me getting in about 3 1/2 hrs on a popcorn design for the stitchlet exchange, the plan is to get it done over the weekend and post off to its recipient on Monday. I might get another pack of the flower charms today when I venture into town as one would work really well on the card. DS wants to spend the day at Nanny's so we'll be off over there later via town.

I 've also been doing some more mini biscornu to match the Earrings I made for Ann so I was pleased to get another 3 squares done yesterday - 5 to go including 2 on black aida in metallic thread , which are a challenge to stitch to say the least. When these mini biscornu are done they'll be made into necklaces and sent to the lovely Ann. I was very lucky and she sent me two blackwork books and some charts as she knows I have a passion for it. I've made some fantastic friends through Bubble.
As for future stitching plans - biscornu and bookmarks. I found a fab WOXS design library yesterday that has some very pretty designs that will work brilliantly for these items. As i'm redundant as of 4.30pm today, I have great plans for sorting out stitchy stash whilst I look for work. I really want to create a spreadsheet with all the WOXS design libraries and alphabets on as much as I love trawling through the mags to find charts, had I known the India themed library had such good charts in i'd have used them ages ago.

Well time is a ticking so I think it's time for a few chores before DS has her sleep. The mess makers have been working flat out in the last 24 hrs so time to reclaim the house for me before I get a bit of stitching in.

  3. Loved the earrings, matching necklace's will be gorgeous :-) With you on the design library thing, I look through them and thing that's a good one then totally forget about it and it stays hidden in the mag. Sorry about you losing your job, just think, the up-side of redundancy is more stitching time, lol!
