And a wee bit more gingham ..lol

Hellloooo again every body ... hope your day has been as productive as mine today .... my back must have listened to you and shushed down enough for me to potter and get things done ....
I follow Inkys  words ... do a bit... stitch ... do a bit.... stitch  and I seem to get loads done  and stitching to boot too ...lol 


as the title suggests today I've worked on some more gingham and it is lovely to work with ... I started Winter Band sampler by LHN ... the fabric is actually beige not pinky ... not sure why it showed up that colour yesterday ...... 
I could have stitched more on this as it is such a lovely one to do .... and its only 4 and 3/4 wide and 10 inches long soooo hopefully won't be long before its on the finished pile ..lol
I have done the backing for my finish and used light interfacing to see how it works for me .... and I've chosen the finishing, finishing bits and hopefully it will be done before the end of the week and on its merry way too .....
one down a few more to go heheheh


I am going to work on Kaths 50th birthday prezzie tonight in the vain hope it will get nearer to completing it ..lol .... she doesn't know what it is yet ... but she may have heard the odd mutter under my breath of wish I'd picked another chart to stitch ..... but it will be worth it .... ( I will keep repeating that tonight hahahaah)


I have been blog hopping and looking at every ones new starts and some finishes and its lovely seeing all the eye candy .. have been making a must get list heheheh ....


soooo here you are now todays wee bit of eye candy .... Winter Band Sampler by LHN stitched on beige weeks dye works linen :) with the recommended threads converted to anchor  (well some of them ..lol) ....
Winter Band sampler by LHN 
ok it is cup of tea time .... its thirsty work this blog writing heheheh 
until tomorrow ... take care and happy stitching :)
love mouse xxxxxx
