I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Finish number 9!

Yes, that's right!  I am back with another finish to show you :o)

Finish # 9
"Merry Christmas"
Designer: Samplers Not Forgotten
Just Cross Stitch Magazine - Christmas 2015

Finished 12 March 2016
This very sweet Christmas design was the March ornie choice for the JCS SAL FB group.  I stitched this on a small piece of 28ct fabric called Sugar Cane Crunch from Stitches and Spice that I had left over in my fabric stash.  All the threads are DMC... of course... but the green is not the suggested green as surprise, surprise that one was missing from my collection!

I will eventually turn this into a pillow ornie but for the time being he will go into the finish folder waiting for that rainy day when the sewing machine comes out to play!

I am now stitching on my Christmas Ornie SAL Blog choice and hopefully I will be able to show you that one by the end of the week!

Don't forget this weekend is IHSW time.... Joyce has put up the sign up page on her blog so pop over and sign up!!

Til next time.. have a great week!
Happy stitching!
Hugs xx
