Stash and Finish

It's been awhile since I last posted, but I have not been idle.  I've finished yet another Owl, but this time its in blackwork.  It's from a Counted Blackwork Starter Kit by X-Calibre Designs.  It's called "Little Owl"  and designed by Carol Leather.  I loved this little owl as soon as I first saw it.  But he is not the first blackwork owl that I have stitched.  My first one was an owl by Jane Greenoff and you can see it also here.

I won a giveaway some time ago and it came in the post today.  It came from Megan at Craftly Lil' Witch.  I'm so happy because I've always wanted to stitch these lovely designs.  I can't wait to get my threads together.

"Cardinal Winter" by LHN.

My friend Janet gave me this little Hardanger booklet that she had found in a charity shop, knowing that I would just love it.  You never know what you might find. I've found some wonderful charts and kits in charity shops in the past.

Happy Stitching
