What A Find :-)

A couple of days ago I was working my way around the world via blogs came across this stunning design.... it's called Sew Winter.

Isn't it wonderful? Upon further investigation I came across the design available at just $4 direct from the designer. Not only that but other designs that are equally as stunning. I was quite taken aback when I found that the designer was not only here in the UK but in my home county of Kent.

There is the promise of new charts to come so if you're taken with these as much as I am then support a new designer :-)

Christmas Design SAL

Right... I'm almost ready to make a start on the Christmas Design SAL. Annoyingly I went out to buy some of the Weeks Dye Works threads today only to find that the store didn't have all that I needed. I did manage to get a piece of fabric. I originally thought I wouldn't have to buy fabric but alas I just don't have the right size piece.

This is what I'll be stitching for the SAL & hopefully this time next year it'll be hanging on a wall somewhere in my home :-)

Following the finish of Baby Love I've spent a week trying to pick a new UFO to work on. The winner is Christmas Trees... also by Cinnamon Cat.

The other thing I've come across is a new SAL (courtesy of Dragon My Needle & via the Speedy Stitcher). It's due to start on 1st December & it's called Christmas Design SAL. I've sorted out a christmas design & the idea is that I stitch on it every month for a year & by this time next year I'll have a lovely new design to hang..... fingers crossed anyway! My chosen design for this is Lizzie*Kate - Merry Christmas - By The Letter. Now all I need to do is sign up for the SAL & order the fabric & threads for a new start... yay :-)

A Finish :-)

It's late & I'm tired so just a quick post to share a picture. My first finished piece of cross stitch for at least 18 months. I am well chuffed & can't wait to enjoy another.
