day four dawned .. cold, wet and miserable the mouse house was reasonably quiet so I decided to choose today "Bushel and a Peck" by La D Da and stitch it on a Sparklies solitare fabric that is just adorable to look at and stitch on ... I am using a mixture of Anchor and Dmc as didn't have all the colours in and merrily got to work ....
then I had to reverse stitch .... set off again and got further to realise... I was a thread out *sigh * reverse stitched again ..... meanwhile the postie came and brought me a lovely parcel from DJ with a beautiful stitched snowman in a gorgeous frame ... and my CCN January Cottage chart too ... whoop whoop :)
so armed and dangerous with a cuppa I got back to my stitching to find ...... not only can't I count today.... I can't read either ...lol .. instructions stitched with one thread over two ..... * aggghhhhhhh .... but on the up side I think it looks better with two over two on this fabric ...lol
I got to the end of my thread length and called it a day with this one and took a photo quick ...lol ... and decided to sort out the "normal" thread for the cottage ... I have most of them sooo should be able to make a start on it in the next day or two ... I am going to stitch these all onto one piece of fabric from Sparklies (again)... called Barely Bronzed ... took a photo to show you again too ..... while the brain was working I remembered I hadn't shown you the wee prezzies I managed to stitch for a few folks for Christmas soooo I shall pop that on here too, for you to nosy at :)
and the strawberry fob was made by Yvonne from Friendly Stitcher s for the bran tub the other year at Harrogate .... it is gorgeous isn't it :)
ok here you go... eye candy ....
|From DJ .. its sooo cute :)|
