iStitch Designs 2015 SAL and Merry Christmas!

Evening all!

Well we are almost there - less than a week till Christmas! Not that it is really feeling like it at the moment - the weather is strangely warm here in Scotland for the time of year and I will be working up to and including Christmas Eve so until the evening of the 24th it is business as usual here!

That been said it has been a busy week getting jobs done in preparation, writing cards, wrapping presents, food shopping...along with a few other things I will tell you about in the new year. So, not a whole lot of stitching has been done. However I did sit down this afternoon while watching Willie Wonker's Chocolate Factory and stitched away for a couple of hours.

I got just short of another 2 days done on the iStitch Designs Advent SAL - definitely not going to be caught up in time - but hey, maybe I will get it done for next Christmas ;)


Please excuse the lighting, it is hard to get it to show up great when it is dark outside but in real life this piece is looking great and I am enjoying working on it a lot - when I have the time!

In other news two more pieces of hand dyed fabric arrived from Crafty Kitten this week. These are the two pieces I picked for my two wedding samplers I am going to start next year. I think they are just perfect for what I have in mind.

The first is more pinky shade called Vintage Petals...


And this is Oatmeal...


They are both 28 count which I have never stitched on before but I am excited to give it a go!

Well I am guessing this will be my last post before Christmas so I hope you all have a great time.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

  16. I love Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. It makes me sad that they tried to create a modern version of that movie and it turned out horrible.

    Love your Christmas stitching. I have quite a collection of Crafty Kitten fabrics too.
