I have been stitching since the late 80's I used to knit till it went out of fashion in the 80's,I enjoy many forms of stitching hardanger,blackwork, any counted stitches, cross-stitch, Quilting,stumpwork,beading and of course my first passion which was knitting.I love the colour purple, I like to stitch samplers I love alphabets, will design my own for special occasions.I like following designer lizzie kate, brent creek,prarie schooler, shepherds bush, little house needlework, Country Cottage Needle work and many more.
I have had a little stitching job waiting for me since Christmas! Like everyone I visited the sales and picked up a couple of bargains, I got two pairs of jeans the only problem was the length they needed altering, well yesterday 4 months later I managed to do it so today I am now wearing my jeans.
While I was at it I shortened 3 pairs of work trousers and moved 3 buttons so I was feeling rather pleased with myself when I had finished.
I have not done much stitching this month, but I do have some things to share. I received a wounderful surprise last week from Kim over at Wisdom with needle and thread, Kim was a stitching angel after a disappointing exchange at Halloween, she contacted me and said she had put a little something in the post, this is what I received, Kim was very genourous in what she sent.
This is stitched over 1,
And some loverly coasters.
Here is the Sheep I stitched for HOE exchange in March.
