Guess what! I have some finishes at long last.... only little ones but every little bit helps!
So where did we get up to in the last stitching update....
The Flower Fairy is now finished. She was a free gift with Issue 176 of World of Cross Stitching. I finally finished her on the weekend - unfortunately I ran out of DMC 779 which was the backstitch colour and it would happen to be one of the colours that I don't have in my stash... so I had to wait til I went to Spotlight to pick up some more!
Kiri Kitten wasn't originally in my stitching plan! However, when I bought the latest issue of Cross Stitch Card Shop (issue 78) the other day Kiri Kitten was the freebie! Yep, you guessed it, I went home and started it straight away that night! Kiri is now stitched and I am thinking that I will finish it off as a birthday card for my Craft Bubble "Crazy for Kitties" birthday exchange as the next one is due at the end of August.
Bee Happy Hedgehog is what I am currently stitching. One of the benefits of going through my old magazines was that I have found all of these lovely freebies that I had forgotten about! This is a Margaret Sherry design which came with the June 2010 issue of Cross Stitcher. He is such a cute little hedgehog! I have stitched all the white of his front but as it is in one thread it doesn't really show up on the photo.
No stitching update would be complete without a word or two about my Culinary Cat! Oops, sorry haven't done anything on him lately.... hopefully next time I will have something to say about Culinary Cat. He will get finished soon!
Oh, and guess what - I have signed up to do another Quilts 4 Kids square. This one will be for Kaitlyn M. Kaitlyn's theme is Music and Dance. I have found a lovely Gloria and Pat design called "Cheerful Notes" that I am going to stitch for her. So watch this space!
That's it for this stitching update. Don't forget that the next new moon is due on 30th July which means it will be time for the ORT report!
Til then, happy stitching!
