He's a Flake - Little House Needleworks

Hello Peeps

I have been away far too long!
I honestly have been busy stitching away on various projects.
Secret ones, planned ones...

Here is a small one I can share with you.

He's a Flake
All Dolled Up! Series
From Little House Needleworks

Stitched on Sew It All 16ct Aida fabric, flint colour
(which is obviously grey & not brown like my pictures!)

Worked 2 over 1, using DMC threads and
replaced use of Mill Hill beads for sparkly Kreinik thread

I initially won the chart from CJ a long time ago
and promised I'd pass on the chart once I'd stitched it.

So, if you too would like to stitch this small snowman,
please leave a comment on this post only saying so.

If there are more than one stitcher interested, I will randomly pick a name.

Winner will be announced in my next post, so stay tuned!

I am happy to post the chart worldwide but cannot guarantee you will receive it
before Christmas as the Royal Mail is always busy at this time of the year.

Thanks to Blogger latest changes,
I can no longer go back on older posts on my reading list (am I the only one?),
so I'd like to apologise if I have missed one of your latest post & didn't comment.

Histoires de moutons - Jardin Privé | End Sep

Hello Peeps!
The end of September has been and gone
and it's time to share my progress on the last instalment of
I have been working on
Histoires de moutons
from Jardin Privé
This is how it will look when finished
My mid September update
My end September update
As you can see, not much was done during the second half of the month.
Life was busy and I caught a cold which
resulted in no stitching for well over a week.
I am now feeling better and hope to work on this project for a few hours
later this evening.
Solo September has been fun but not really productive for me!
I have decided to carry working on this sweet project for the time being.
Marie Christine has also decided to start working
on those adorable sheep!
Hop over to her blog for a little peek,
she is using a very pretty fluffy thread for her sheep :)
On another note,
I will be going on a cross stitch retreat soon and
am planning on starting 3 small projects!!!
I will share these with you all soon

Histoires de moutons - Jardin Privé | Mid Sep Update

Good morning Peeps!
Time for my mid month Solo September update

A little reminder of my choice
Histoires de moutons from Jardin Privé

As mentioned in my previous post,
I was slightly delayed in starting, waiting for my fabric to be delivered.
It arrived on the 2nd Sep and I have been stitching away everyday since
Here is my progress

Apologies for the dark coloured picture,
the weather is unfortunately not at its best this morning

Those little sheep are so much fun to stitch!
Pattern 1 out of 4 is almost finished.
I plan on changing the date to 2016, of course.
My model is stitched on 16ct Aida from Sew It All
Sand Dune colour
