Needlecraft Haven - Monthly challenge

Hi everyone,

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. I've spent a lot of mine stitching so can't be bad! I managed to get 4 things finished this weekend so I'm very pleased :-) The only down side is that I can't reveal any until  later this week.

I'm sorry if I haven't had chance to visit your blogs this week. I've read most of them on my phone but it's rather hard to comment, especially if you have the verifier on. We had a bit of a plumbing nightmare this week and unfortunatly as a consequence we are having to share thre computer. Normal service should be resumed this week hopefully.

I do have a finish to show you. I joined Needlecraft Haven after seening the lovely things Jo had stitched during the course of last year in the Monthly Stitching Challenge. So here is my first piece It's a design by Threadwork Primitives and I stitched it to be a wedding sampler for Hubby and I as we've been married 10 years this June.

Here's a close up of it - It's stitched on cream evenweave using DMC threads. I altered the colours slightly to be a little brighter and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.  Hubby really likes it too - which is a bonus!!

I'm hoping to get it on the wall in the lounge later this week. My stitching is slowly taking over!!! I'll be back later in the week to show you the biscornu I made for Steph for our exchange and with a wrap up for theme-a-licious and also a 101 update.

Have a great evening. Happy crafting.


  1. How lovely :) Congrats on your finish!

  2. It looks fantastic framed, Kerry! Well done!

  3. Super challenge finish, i used mine as an anniversary finish for hubby.

  4. Happy Anniversary! So pretty! My DH and I will celebrate 15 years next week. Wonder if I should stitch something?

  5. That's beautiful Kerry! Early happy anniversary wishes for you.
    So excited about our swap!
    sorry if you get this twice, my computer has lost the plot(again!)


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. :-)
