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.

You gotta love new stash!!!

I'm having a bit of a stitching drought at the moment and I just can't seem to get anywhere on my Hydrangea. It's very frustrating as I really wanted to get it finished by Sunday. Hey ho that's how it goes.

I did get my Circles embroidery finished yesterday. The original design was alot smaller, so I expanded it a little as the fabric was generous. It's an Anchor living kit I brought ages ago and was in a sale. I just need to glue on the little diamantes now.

Having enjoyed the circles embroidery I was delighted to find the rest of the set that were at a price too good to refuse. I got them from Black Sheep Wools for £1.98 each. Now that's a bargain in my eyes.

Whilst browsing their website I also found these kits too at the same fab price and I shall stitch them for my son who is a huge Disney fan. he doesn't know I have brought them. My only dilemma is as they are only 2"x 2" what do I do to display them? Suggestions more than welcome!!!

I had a lovely surprise package from Laura this week to say thank you for her wedding present. I love the little brooch. Just my colour too.

Well time to see if I can coax my stitchy bug from under the sofa!


  1. Yay! So glad you liked the goodies! :) Fab stash, I love those Anchor kits, I've never seen them before, they're amazing! I like the little Disney kits too... as to what to do with them... mmm... frame them all together? (ie get a piece of mount board and cut three holes?) Or sew them onto a cushion? Or make them into coasters? Hope your stitchy bug comes back soon!

  2. wow..very lovely stash..i love it so much...
    i hope you find your stitchy bug soon..love and hugs xx

  3. I got a great thank you parcel too from Laura :-) I love the circles!!! Stunning on the black fabric
