Some Finnishes a New Arrival!! and a Freebie.

Hi Everyone, So glad you could pop by and have a look at what I've been up too.

Well, lets start with the finishes.  I've done two more of the "Starry Night" tree decorations by The Prairie Schooler.  

I've already started the next one, just two more to go.  I have really enjoyed stitching these.

And now for the New Arrival!!

Jingles has arrived safely.
Jingles the bear has arrived safely, together with his stash of food, as it was a long journey from the USA to the UK.  Together with a beautiful card from Tricia of The Stamper's Stitches and of course the Lizzie Kate "Fa La La La La" chart.  Tricia had a Giveaway at the beginning of September and I'm glad to say "I won".  Thank you so much Tricia, I just Love Jingles, and I will have to get started on stitching "Fa La La La La".


I've been searching for freebies on the web and found this Winter Sampler from Leisure Arts.

September is here, and I have some stitching to share with you!!

 It's my friends birthday later on this month, and as I was going away on a short holiday to Wales, I popped in a small kit to stitch.  I have already stitched this design before, but I wanted it bigger.  I changed some of colours and used some of the left over threads from last time.  I think it's turned out quite well.  Here's a picture of them both together.

I thought you would like to see some of the photos I took while I was away.
