Comfort - Little House Needleworks

Hello Peeps!

Hope you're all enjoying your weekend... stitching!!
I have a small finish to share with you. It has been left in my little basket for a few days now as I still have to make a small pincushion with it.
This is Comfort from Little House Needleworks
and was kindly gifted to me by Kim and came with all cottons
Stitched on 14ct Zweigart aida white fabric Using 2 strands of Crescent Colours cotton.



I have run out of the Poblano Pepper colour (green) and bought a new skein. Can you see the change in batch colour? 

OoOoO

I am happy to pass on this chart for someone else to stitch. It will come with all threads.
If you are a follower and would like to stitch it, please tell me so in your comment. If there are more than one person interested, I will randomly pick a name. Winner will be announced on the 1st May.

OoOoO


Off to work on a bigger project Alice in Wonderland from Bothy Threads... Which will be the subject of a future post!

OoOoO

For the Stitched Envelope Swap, a few …

A little exchange anyone??

Image
I have been admiring these little swaps taking place on various blogs I follow and I have now decided to give it a go... A little cross stitched envelope exchange!! How about that? You have to stitch a design and finish it as an envelope. Send it along with a little card and little goodies such as floss, ribbon or buttons Nothing big, as it's got to fit in the envelope you've made :)
Various tutorials are available on the French www, just type "enveloppe brodée tuto" No theme but be ready to post worldwide. OoOoO No idea if any of you would be interested, for those of you brave enough, please leave a comment stating you wish to take part
(Apologies, I will only accept people who have an active blog!!)
You have until the 1st May to enter.
OoOoO Let's make sure, once you know your partner, your envelope is sent before the 1st July
EDIT:
Some of you have asked if we have to send the envelope as it is by just affixing stamps or if we can put it in an envelope for safe…

Meeting up new friends...

Good afternoon dear readers! I am still around and still stitching away on various projects. That will be for another post. OoOoO Last weekend I was really lucky to meet up with 2 lovely blogging ladies!! They travelled all the way to Shropshire just so that we could spend a weekend together of stitching, chatting & stashing I met Justine from Justine's Cross Stitch and Rachel from Ten Hour Stitcher I was quite nervous but now wonder why. We just got on so well together, it felt like we already knew each other OoOoO We spent the day in Wales at the Nimble Thimble. We swapped goodies, talked, eat, talked more, stashed a bit and talked a bit more This is what I got from Rachel Some beads, buttons, needle minder, key ring and a jar bursting with masses of colourful ribbons! Also been gifted with the lovely friendship chart from My Big Toe OoOoO This is what I have received from Justine A beautiful handmade zipped pouch with thread catcher (I haven't stopped using these since…
