Hi . . .

Hello everyone!

A big thank you to Nia for letting me join this wonderful Blog and here is my first contribution . . .


Archie Bear 'Chocolate makes my Clothes Shrink!'
stitched on 28~count natural linen with my choice of DMC threads


My favourite colours are burgundys and creams so Archie's jumper is stitched to match my kitchen colours and I finished it into a small bag which is known, on past occasions, to have the odd bar or two of chocolate inside it (just in case of emergency, you know!)


I'm working on a small Halloween design at the moment which will be part of a giveaway on my blog once it's completed.

Thanks for stopping by
HAPPY STITCHING
