SAL #7 Bags of Fun

I finished my stitch-along just before Christmas last year and then subsequently lost my post!

I am soon going to start another Margaret Sherry project, so I thought I had better post my finished SAL.

Here is a photo of my WIP:

And here is the finished piece:

I loved working on this project so much, even the backstitch was a joy. I plan to frame it sometime during the year.

This will be my next Margaret Sherry project. As you can see it is similar to bags of fun. I just need to buy some new material and get my threads out. I have a friend who I think will love it!


Happy stitching!
Love,

Hi everyone!

I´m little late with this design. I wanted to post it on Valentine´s Day. The last year I finished this cute hedgehog design called Bubbles of love which was published in the issue 136 of Quick & Easy Cross Stitch. I decided do it with pink frame and I changed bubbles´ thread. I hope I will do also design Heart Topiary which was published together with this :-)


My original post here.

Have a nice day!



Admin back to service! ;)


Hi everyone!!! Oh! I missed this group so much :)

Sorry for my long absence =/ I'm pretty sure all moms out there know well how a newborn changes our life and schedules :p Well, my boy is not a newborn any more, he will turn 1 year old in a couple of weeks :D

I tryed to keep up with the group during the first few months but.. I lost track! Sorry ladies, I should've had asked someone to take my place for a while, never thought I would stay away for this long. But I'm so happy to see you've been active here :D New posts to read and photos to comment!! Thank you ladies :)

Hello again....

Goodness me, it has been so long since I posted here.... and so very long since I have stitched a Margaret Sherry design!  Last year my stitching plans went slightly awry as my job went super crazy and I went back to working 5 days a week.... with less hours to stitch each week, and even less energy not a lot got done!

But 2015 is getting off to a great start and I sort of have some updates for you.... no finishes yet but who knows what the next couple of months will bring!

So here we go for a bit of an update on my MS stitching:

SAL #5 - Spring Bouquet
My last update on this lovely design was way back on 27th April 2014..... and this is what Kitty looked like then

SAL #5 - Spring Bouquet
Status as at 27th April 2014
and after a little bit of love and attention courtesy of the Crazy January Challenges I was doing last month, this is what Kitty looks like now! Actually this is not all because of the January challenge - I had done a little bit more in between my April post and January, but not a lot!

SAL #5 - Spring Bouquet
Status as at 20th January 2015

During January I also started stitching on the some of the MS free gifts that I had sitting around.  Pics below:

Cross Stitch Crazy Issue 171 - Free Gift
Free Gift - World of Cross Stitching - Issue 220

Free Gift - World of Cross Stitching - Issue 220

Free Gift - World of Cross Stitching - Issue 220
So after a rather lengthy absence of stitching on Margaret Sherry designs I am certainly trying to make up for it now!

Hopefully I will be back again in a very short space of time to show you some finishes of the small Christmas designs above!

Til then, happy stitching

Crazy cats: Clever you!


This was my very first cross stitching of Margaret Sherry´s design. Yeah, it´s old picture.... My friend finished the university and she is big lover of cats. I wanted to give her some cattish... So I adjusted this picture for her, left out "Clever you" and stitched a date of her graduation and "Ing" (it means engineer). She was crying, I was crying, but we both were happy :-)

Have a nice evening!

Getting cold

Because it is getting cold here a sweet cat all wrapped up! Happy stitching!
