Hi everyone, the gift I sent to my blogging friend has arrived at its destination, yay!
Here is the gift I sent my blogging friend Kim from Wisdom with Needle and Thread blog, it has been in my to do list for quite some time but I finally got around to making something special.
I know that Kim loves the Tudor era so I thought blackwork would be the perfect gift, I don’t think I have stitched blackwork before but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I made the project pouch that is large enough for a small cross stitch project to fit into, I also made the Paris bag because Kim had said how much she loved it when she saw it on my blog. The little lucky pinkeep was another easy choice as Kim had said she loved that too, so it all went together into a little parcel and off to my friend across the pond.

No reply bloggers
I have a message for one lady called Patricia, sorry I have not replied to your last two emails, I can’t because you are a no reply blogger and I therefore cannot contact you unless you leave me your email in a comment. Anyone else who has not received the Miss Mini Cat pattern is also a no reply blogger, sorry!
Etsy shop update
I have been updating my Etsy shop with some new cross stitch patterns from some lovely designers, the only trouble with this is I want to stitch them all!
One of my customers ordered a pair of my silver toned scissors, of course I just cannot send them without making a surprise pouch to match, so I decided to make this little pouch, hot off the sewing machine this morning!
I seem to be in a black mood today, not literally but choosing black fabric!
Here are the latest patterns in my shop.
Madame Chantilly Halloween Owls and Country Cottage Needleworks Pumpkin Cottage
This is one of my favourites by the very talented designer Cuore Batticuore called Pumpkins Farm.
I looove this craft room pattern by the same designer
Christmas Owls by Madame Chantilly
Barbara Ana designs
Country Cottage Needleworks
These gorgeous samplers by Elizabeths Needlework Designs are also a favourite, but to be honest I want to stitch them all!
I only have one of each pattern with the exception of Country Cottage Needleworks Pumpkin Cottage, I have 2.
Until next time, happy stitching.
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
