I'm back! And some stitching to show.

It's some time since I last posted anything.  I have no excuses to give.  But I would like to share with you all what I have stitched.

First of all, it was a special birthday for my daughter, so I stitched her one of the freebie Hardanger designs from Nordic Needle, called Hardanger with Crystals #4 (just scroll down to find it).  I found her favourite colour in my collection of threads and used beads instead of crystals.  I also decided to put a different filling stitch in the middle of of Kloster blocks.  (I do like to changing things sometimes.)  After looking through my stash I finally found a card to put it in.

You might see the detail better in this photo.

And finally here is the baby card I stitched for my hairdresser.  Its a Sam Hawkins design.  I just used up some of my odd threads, and I'm pleased how it turned out.  As you can see, she had a little girl.


There are some great freebies to be found on the webb.  Here are a few that I have found.

Passione Ricamo.

Brookes Books Publishing has started a new series of Advent Animals, and the charts can be found here (just scroll down the page).  Please note that I have not stitched these designs yet.

I just love Christmas designs.

Well, thats all for now.

Happy Stitching Everyone.
