More finishes

I made this bracelet, it is a kit from the Bead Merchant, it is mainly stitched in Herringbone stitch even the blackberries I have a necklace that I made a few years ago which also has berries on.I have completed another two of the LHN monthly releases he,s a flake is below I changed the colour of his scarf and the tree pot it looks brighter now.
The Red Christmas House was a quick stitch I have completed 4 now not quite sure how I am going to finish them yet, I might make them into a wall hanging.
We are away at the coast, at the moment we are sat on North Bay at Scarborough the tide is in and it is like a mill pond, it is 21.5 C which is warm enough for me, we have just had some bacon sandwiches for lunch from a great cafe on the beach front called Oasis. we are sat just watching the world go by and I will be getting my stitching out soon.

Something new

I have set myself another challenge to do with the SAL 2010 Blog, I received the last Loose Feathers pattern this week from Blackbird Design, I also have the recommended fabric as well which Thread Bear has been sending me, so I decided to treat myself to the threads as well I had hoped to have started it by now but been at work all weekend too tired been to bed early instead.

ABC Exchange

We have been away again, this time to Scotland we have a Timeshare in Carrbridge just outside Aviemore, we had lovely weather, this caught my eye on the beach while we were Dolphin watching.
Here is everyone with their cameras waiting for them to show, my Hubby is 3rd from the right next to the dog, we spent two hours watching 1 did jump but he missed it!! we have great photo's from previous years it is the luck of the draw if you manage to capture them as you do not know where they are going to come up.
Here is the ABC Exchange I sent Blyn I had her as my partner at Christmas.
It is an Atalie Biscornu pattern.
Stitched on variegated fabric that I had in my stash worked in WDW Sophies Choice.
