Natures beauty in at number 11 :)

Hi every one :0 .... I can hear lots of *oh no not another one finished ..lol  but hey what is a mouse meant to do when the skies open and the rain pours down on the mouse house ?????
I had planned on taking a hobble down to the canal and see if I could take some pictures of the baby ducklings but in the words of the tennis season "rain stopped play "  heheheh 
so I busied myself with my needle and fortified with the odd cup of tea or two sat and stitched the afternoon away :)
I really enjoyed stitching this one and it has a lovely old sampler feel to it .. the only small wee moan is the purple flowers .... if you were going to buy all the threads for this one .. see if you have got something in your stash .... they only used one length(36") of thread ..folded to do loop start ... for each colour for both sides .... luckily for me I can use them on the lavender hill chart :)
Natures Beauty LHN :)
sooooo with out further  waffling heheheh here she is in all her glory ... sorry picture isn't brilliant as took it as the light was fading as I wanted you all to see :)
so in the list of crazies left to do, I have
 Poinsettia House, The needlework shop, Winter Whites and the Thread Gathering left to finish stitching .... :)
In my group the friendly stitchers some of  have decided to stitch Mary Whigham as a SAL .. we have said no pressure to get it finished but to show progress photos when stitched on it ... I had chosen my fabric and threads last year when I was going to get it started *ho hum  any ways here they are for you to look at ... fabric Joblean wood violet and anchor threads done as a floss toss ..lol
So I shall keep you all updated too as to how I get along with it :) 


Mary Whigham supplies 
Damion has said thank you for all the lovely comments about him and said if you want a pawaograph please form an orderly queue and he will sign once he has finished eating his cucumber  ..... Pip has asked me to show a picture of him too ..lol so here you are .... 
I would show you Moon (hamster) but she is busy running in her gyro ball atm.... she is all white too .....:)
PIP :)


So that is all my news for now :) I shall now go and pop the kettle on for a last brew before this little mouse goes to sleep .. been a busy old day ..lol
take care one and all .. happy stitching to you all :) love mouse xxxx

Wow another lovely finish!

You have reminded me that i still have a Mary Wigham started and stashed away somewhere!

Hasn't stopped raining all day here either, it was even cold enough for us to put the heating on for a couple of hours last night !! Where is the great British summer lol.

Have a good week x

Congrats on another sweet finish.

Mouse, I love your new LHN finish but what intrigues me is the fabric and floss for Mary. They look positively beautiful!!! I cannot wait for updates on this one.

Blessings

Catherine said...

Sweet finish!

I love the colors you picked for Mary. I am doing mine in shades of a grey/green - haven't worked on it in a while though. Perhaps had I chosen a wider variety of colors, I would pull it out more often!

Pip is too cute!

Carol said...

Your Nature's Beauty finish truly is a beauty! Congratulations on finish number 11 :)

Teresa said...

Love your finish. Can't think of anything better to so on a rainy day than to stitch and enjoy a cup or two of tea.
Enjoy your last brew.

Ali said...

Oh that looks gorgeous xx (I'm finding my evenweave a bit tricky - some of my stitches look a bit bigger than the rest - I've started something small - thank goodness I'll try and blog pics soon)

Christine said...

Another lovely finish. The colours you've chosen for Mary Wigham are really pretty, I love the violet fabric

Ruth said...

Oh....what a lovely pattern, and stitching too, of course! Had to read about Pip and Damion, so cute the two of them! Can't wait to see your progress on Mary Wingham...I should pull mine out and see about starting it! Sorry I didn't comment on your last post, it's been a bit busy here! *Hugs*

Brigitte said...

Congrats on another finish of your Crazy projects! You're really good at it. Nature's Beauty is one of my favourite LHNs, I love everything in it.
Good luck with your SAL project.

Lois said...

Well done on another finish! Have fun on the Mary Wigham SAL. The colours look great.

Sally said...

I love your Nature's Beauty finish. It is so pretty. Hmmmm I now have the urge to start one of my LHNs but I.....must.....behave......!

Looking forward to seeing Mary Wigham.

Awww Pip is so cute!

Ali said...

Yoo hoo, I have the idea of having it in the centre of a cushion and been through loads of old mags to get ideas - Ive never made anything like that before so fingers crossed just on the look out for some nice fabrics xx

TinaTx said...

wow - you are cranking out the finishes!
wish we could get a little rain around here.

Lynn B said...

Lovely finish Mouse!

mdgtjulie said...

Congrats on the finish Mouse. I'm having an even worse, um, problem (???) with one of my projects. It calls for a color of Gentle Arts Sampler Thread. I bought the skein. There are eleven stitches of that color. ELEVEN!!!! I was so ticked by that. If I had realized, I would have used another color that I had instead of spending a buck ninety on it! I'm glad you have something else to use your thread on! Pretty colors in MW too. I'll be watching for your start on that! And Pip is very handsome too. Hope you're really having a great summer!
