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.

Theme-Tas-Stitch September Link up post

Hey Friends,

I'm sorry for the lack of posting and blog reading over the last few weeks. A bit of ill health put pay to the stitchy bug for a few weeks, but here is this month's Theme-Tas-Stitch.

 September Smalls -
What is the smallest stitch in your stash? Show us your smalls!

In my last post I talked about my plans for September smalls. I planned to do a whole host of of the free charts from The Drawn Thread and have a couple of starts of big projects. So get ready for a whole host of photos cos the girl done good! I've not had chance to make up all of them but here they are...

My favourite is tree keeper

And I've made up Autumn and pumpkin keepers ready for my Autumn display. The Autumn keeper is hanging on the picture frame and the pumpkin keeper is in the middle. 

I also was chatting on Instagram about blackwork and decided to stitch a couple of biscornu. I had a couple of tiny scraps of the fabric left so I stitched two tiny biscornu too and they measure less than an inch each.

I ran out of fray check and I'm too lazy to baste the edges of my fabric so I haven't started Elizabeth Shepard yet, but I did get a small start on the City Landscape from WOXS 251. I'm loving this and plan to stitch the current page of the chart which is basically 2 more houses and the tops of the two skyscrapers behind. By that point the fray check should be here and I will start ES!!

Opulent October -
Break out the bling - stitch with beads, charms, metallics or on sparkly fabric.
I don't have a clue about this one so I'll have to come up with something. 

Link up here and show us what you've been up to. 

You can now find me on Instagram as Kerry_in_stitches and I also made my first flosstube video too - my channel is Kerry_in_stitches there too! Pop over and say hi! 

Happy stitching friends
