Welcome

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.

Stash shopping at the NEC

Hey folks, 

Just a quick post about my day out at the Stitching and hobbycrafts show at the NEC yesterday. I went with my friends Clare and Ria. 

We saw some amazing cakes...




Saw costume displays from the film The Kings Speech



And a promotional piece from Game of Thrones. 


And brought STASH...


Paper bags for DD's birthday and jewellery elastic. Lots of buttons, various pieces of fabric (including a grab bag of evenweave and linen offcuts) and threads. 



Buttons and beads. 


Liberty fabric for my quilt, felt and threads.


And a bent creek pattern. I seem to have a thing for alphabet patterns at the moment. 

I had a fab day. Best I start saving for November! 

See you Tuesday for Theme-Tas-Stitch.

Gifted Gorgeousness with a sprinkling of madness

In an attempt to shorten next week's potentially mahoosive Theme-Tas-Stitch post, I thought I'd share a few of my march madness projects that I've stitched on so far as part of gifted gorgeousness.

Gifted gorgeousness is stitching on hosted by Jo of serendipitous stitching.  We post about the projects we have worked on that use gifted elements such as fabric or chart or that is stitched as a gift. 

I have been picking projects out of the JOD with help from DD. The first few projects picked out are all gifted kits or will be gifts and each contain an evenings stitching. 


Top left - Maia Giraffe silhouette - from Mum
Top right - Celtic bird - from Laura
Bottom left - Lizzie Kate friendship grows - stitching for a friend. 
Bottom right - Just Nan Spring frills - blog win from Carolyn. 

I also did a fair bit on my Anchor Traditional Sampler - a gift from my in laws. 


I loved stitching on the sampler again and I only have 1700 stitches to go. It'll be the first thing I pick up in April. 

The last thing is this little freebie design I found on Pinterest stitched in DMC coloris thread. 


So that seems to get me up to date. I'm off to the NEC for the stitching and craft show. I'm very excited! 

Happy stitching friends.
