Finally some stitching!

A quick look through some craft books last night had me itching to do some stitching! Hubby is usually given a work diary before the new year, and I usually have to buy mine and then make a fabric cover, but this year we have been given 4! Hubby will not be getting a fabric cover for his of course, so I am going to cover 3 and then choose a favourite to keep, and maybe give the others for gifts.

The little verse with the stitchery is 'Cherished memories are held in the heart forever'
I couldn't resist Natalie Birds stitchery "From the Heart' it really has some lovely stitcheries in it! This is going on the front of one of the diaries and I might stitch a couple of my own designs for the others.

When the sun comes out, out come the bumble bees! We have had quite a bit of rain over the few weeks (nothing like in other areas) enough so I don't have to water the vegies, which is good.

I am finally feeling that I am getting on top of all the Christmas jobs...which is a good thing as its only less than a week away! Lol!

Enjoy your week

Lovely Lisa...what thread are you using..

Lovely stitching Lisa. Have you tried the Lecien threads called Cosmo? I have heard good reports about them. You can buy them as the 6 stranded or on a reel of 2 strands. I managed to find some the other week and it is lovely to use. Have a great Christmas and I will be thinking of you as we are in sub zero figures and heavy snow.
Love Shirley.x
