Current Work in Progress

This is one of my current projects, its called the Book of Ink Circles and was a free mystery SAL started back in 2008 (I'm a bit behind!!!) from a wonderful designer Tracy at Ink Circles (

If you are interested in Celtic designs it's a wonderful site to visit as she has some really beautiful designs.

A new Design

Thought you might be interested to see this, it's a Biscornu that I designed for the Stitch A Little website. You'll find the chart on there for sale. This is my first Biscornu design and I am rather pleased with it. I used beads in the design and I like the way they show up.
I hope to do a few more of these designs soon.

Long time no speak!

I realise I haven't posted anything for 2 weeks, doesn't time fly when you're having fun!!!
I've managed to fit in some stitching among working, housework and filling in job application forms (doing that in my sleep now!).
Last night I finished a few little bits and pieces off, including one of my own new designs. You'll find the chart for sale on my site:
My best friend arrives from Scotland to stay with us today, so busy getting ready for that. Looking forward to a week of stitching and chatting.

Another good day!!

Another good day, as I got to stitch for most of it!
I started this one last night, whilst watching Strictly Come Dancing and then finished it this morning. I really loved putting the beads on, it's a while since I've used beads and this reminded me how much I like working with them.
This afternoon I started the one of the black/white cat with a Christmas decoration, will post pic when finished.

A Great Saturday

I have had a really good day, as I alternated stitching with washing and housework and consequently, started and finished this really cute snowman.
This and the Santa, are for a SAL on the Margaret Sherry Blog. I need to make them into a tree ornament now.
Working on one of the MS sketchbook designs next.

Exciting News

I am really pleased that I have managed to create a website for my small business, selling my own cross stitch designs. I actually started this business about 3 years ago, but it has lapsed during this last year due to studying/work commitments but I am really pleased to be able to get it up and running again. The site is not complete yet, but hopefully not much longer!!
Anyone interested, here's the link:

Another Finish!!

I've literally just finished this one, and isn't he just the cutest!!!
It took me longer to do than I initially thought but I am so pleased with him that I don't mind. This is the second little black & white cat done and hope to do a lot more of them in the coming months.
Need to do a birthdya card for my Father in law next, and unfortunately I couldn't find an MS one that was suitable - shame!!
