Autumn hedghog pincushion and cross stitch WIPs.

Hello everyone, How are you all?
It is a cool but sunny morning here in the UK we had a lovely weekend I hope you did too. While relaxing last evening and watching Strictly Come Dancing I happily worked on my latest cross stitch projects.

I have one finish this cute hedgehog pincushion,

pattern is by Sheena Rogers see the website here
but I had the pattern from an old issue of Cross Stitch Collection which is not printed anymore .

Also I started the September mini cat calendar series

and carrying on with an Autumn feel I am stitching this cute scarecrow pouch and when that is finished I will continue with the squirrel design too, these are both from CrossStitcher magazine issue 322 September 2017.

I purchased a three new patterns and these are by Jane Greenoff check her website here

the pattern at the bottom of the picture is one I had in my stash how ever I cannot remember where I purchased this one from but I found a website called The Patchwork Rabbit which sells Foxwood Crossings patterns.

That's all for now. Take care everyone and till next time.

bye for now

Scrappy pincushion and embroidery pillow.

Hello everyone, Happy August

It's hot, hot, hot, I am keeping in the shade where possible with all my windows open and curtains partially closed to keep the rooms cool, for us and our dog and when I go out I need plenty of sun cream for my pale skin. I don't tan I just have hundreds of freckles loll's ..

Anyway I want to share a few finished projects and WI P's
first is this little scrappy pincushion.

As the title says it uses all your little scraps of fabric and then you add this sweet house embroidery in the centre, I loved sewing this it was very easy to make the pattern and design is by Lynn Briggs check the link here you can also find a link to her shop page for patterns on Crafsy

Next if you follow me on Instagram you will have seen some embroidery I have been stitching, here is one I have finished.

This is one of the designs from a pattern booklet of twelve called Bloomin' Marvellous by
Kelly Fletcher

I have filled the pillow with Lavender.

I have an update on the Mini cat calendar by Lynn B at
Happiness is Cross Stitching

I will be starting August tonight.

You may have noticed in the last post I mentioned a new video on my You Tube channel, I have only posted a few so far with a big gap in between the last ones, well if any of you had chance to see me thank you for watching I know there are a few little niggles with some improvements needed but I will get better as I go along and I hope to have the lighting sorted on the next one, it was a little dark at the beginning then I changed it quickly.
I would welcome any tips and feedback so if you want to leave comments you are welcome.

Thanks again everyone for visiting my blog and my Instagram page.

Till next time
Happy stitching
