Hi everyone, I am so pleased I managed to finish Little House Needleworks Home of a Needleworker, the colours are so pretty and I really enjoyed stitching it.
I am going to put it with a selection of other finished pieces and take them to the framers in England to get them framed all at the same time. (More photos below)
Stitching and knitting news
All photos below
I have just started stitching another pretty design by Little House Needleworks called “Quilt Time Sampler”, I will show my progress on that one in my next post.
The Hands on Design series of monthly patterns that I stitch onto the pillows are taking a back seat at the moment but I am intending to get November and December stitched over the next few weeks and finished into pillows.
I have been enjoying making a scarf for my husband for Christmas and making a lace shawl for myself, I am so pleased that I finally found a lace pattern that was easy to knit.
Two kits to catch up on.
The colours are so pretty in these two
This is the scarf I have knit for my husbands Christmas pressie.
It is a free pattern from The Lion Brand Website, I used Stylecraft Special Chunky, a lovely soft yarn.
You can read about it on my Ravelry page here
This is the lace shawl I knit for myself, it is such an easy pattern and once you get going on the pattern it knits up pretty fast. I call it my Aqua Blue shawl but the name of the pattern is the
Radiant Look Shawl by Lorna Miser, you can see the details on my Ravelry page here
I am looking forward to wearing this on sunny days when there is a chill in the air or needed inside when the air conditioning is rather cool!
It is another free pattern of course!
I have been doing a little bit of sewing for my Etsy shop, I sold some of my lavender sachets and decided to make another one from the vintage fabric I purchased from the Dordogne.
It smells gorgeous!
I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year, until next time…….
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
