Cooooo I can't believe that we are almost at the end of this challenge of 15 new starts ... I have enjoyed every single day of this and yes I know that I have done ALL Little House Needleworks and Country Cottage Needle works BUT they are what I had in (amongst other stuff lol) and these were all kitted up apart from the fabric which I did have in my stash pile :)
So what can I say about today except that it has flown past in the blink of an eye .... I put some a length of silk into my UFO biscornu before I had even had my first cuppa of the day !!!!!
so I shall show you the pics of that first :0
Ok sooooo we then move onto today's new start which if you have been following will now know it is another LHN piece ...... and it is ...... "Daisy Lane Cottage"
I got this late last year as it was one of those instant fall in love with's ..lol and I added it to my basket when shopping for a friends birthday present... as you do :) its a well known disease amongst stitcher s Basketitis and no cure for it either yipppeee ..lol
I am stitching it on 28 count flax linen with the recommended crescent colour and the anchor alternative to the dmcs listed ........ It doesn't stand out quite as much as if it was stitched on the recommend fabric but IT is growing on me ... good job really as I have to finish it heheheheheh :)
So at long last the photo ...lol
|Day 14 Daisy Lane Cottage LHN|
I think I may have to put something in the windows again or may be put a little bit of back stitch to give a wee bit of definition on them :) but other than that I like ..lol
OOOO I know what I meant to say .... the postie turned up with my subscription gift from the cross stitcher magazine :) Its a lovely little wooden box :)
