LHN Ye Olde Chocolate Shoppe work in progress and new stash.

Mmmmm Chocolate is one of my favourite things, especially when it is designed by Little House Needleworks, Ye Olde Chocolate Shoppe! I have stitched more on this since I took the photo, so hopefully I will have this finished at the weekend. It has been such a quick stitch but I have really enjoyed stitching it, the colours are lovely. 
I have also been buying some stash, I chose some linen and another selection of Country Cottage and Little House Needleworks patterns. I particularly like the Rosie pattern below, she is just so cute, I think that will be my next project.
Le Boutique and The Flower Shop
The Needlework Shop and Bakery
I also needed some new linen, I bought red, black, pale blue and pink, I have some ideas for the black as I am working on a black and white stitched piece at the moment, it has been a work in progress for quite a while, the black linen is to make accessories to match. I bought the Christmas Red as I am planning to make some red pieces for Christmas this year.   
 Other stitching news
I have received some photos recently of the projects that some of my readers have stitched using my patterns, I am hoping to show those in my next post.
 Today I was cutting out the pattern for a new dress I am making so I didn’t get much cross stitching done but I have been thinking about my third blog anniversary giveaway gift that I am planning for July, hopefully I can rustle up something that you will all like!
Welcome to all of my new followers and thankyou for all of your comments, they are really appreciated!
Until next time, happy stitching!       
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B
