Hi there! How about a bit of a stitching update? It surely must be past time that I showed you what I have been stitching over the last couple of weeks.
Now when I last posted I had just started my Lizzie Kate "Jingles" SAL - but more on that in my next post....
This month I have also been stitching on my April design for the Halloween Ornie SAL 2014 blog. The April theme was Owls and I chose to stitch a rather cute Diane Arthurs design. Surprisingly this month I have actually managed to get my Owl stitched and posted before the end of the month!!
Say hello to "Owliver and Punky"!

Next month's theme is "Monsters" - but I am yet to find a design that I like.... so let the hunt begin!
Hallowe'en Ornie SAL

September -Black cats
October - Trick or Treaters
November -Bugs, insects or spiders
December -Free choice
So that was Halloween.... now onto the MS Lovers Blog SAL's.
Remember I said at the beginning of the year that I had signed up for three MS SAL's this year.... well finally four months into the year I have managed to start stitching my first one!

Before I leave you, let me show you the secret stitching that I mentioned last month in my TUSAL report. For those of you that follow Nia's blog you will know that little Lourenço was born on 7 March 2014. I decided to stitch a little piece of Australia to send to Nia and her little man. But as always happens with me, time went by and I didn't get it sent off before he was born. But maybe I should say I planned it that way so that I could add his birth date to the final stitching.
I stitched part of a birth sampler design from Carrol Nielsen. I love Carrol's designs especially her Koala's.
This was my first flat fold finish.... The fabric that I used was another one from Stitches and Spice.
I also sent some little Aussie friends for Lourenço - just a little piece of Australia for a little Portuguese baby!
My next couple of posts will be my TUSAL post and an update on "Jingles". See you then!
Til then, happy stitching
