Lots of stitching this week

I've been quite busy this week - I have completed all the stitching on my Christmas 3D House and will hopefully assemble it this week. I have arranged a Meet Up Day for some of my internet friends next Saturday so I'd like to get it finished by then.

I have stitched myself a new name tag - I just need to assemble it, probably on plastic canvas with a felt back.

It was from a free design on Victoria Sampler - Good Friends Name Tag. I changed the colours to ones that are my favourites.

My other bit of stitching is a lovely design from Lizzie Kate. I took part in a Secret Kit Exchange and this was my gift.

It was quite quick to stitch and I love the pistashio fabric but I have no idea what to do with it now, any suggestions would be appreciated.

I did wonder whether to make a small hanging for my new office at work - but I will have to watch I don't turn it into another display area for stitching.

I have also knitted another hat for Save the Children so I have six now ready to send off. I am going to send these this week then start a few more. The other item I've stitched I can't share as it's the April Challenge - sorry.

I'm not sure what I plan to stitch this week - I'm sure there is something I should be soing but can't think what. Hopefully I will remember soon.


  1. Lovely new name tag Clare, they are my favourite colours too. Enjoy the meet up next week.

  2. Your nametag looks great Clare! You will have a great time at the meet-up and I swear that one day I'll get over that ocean to attend too. Love your blog! I bookmarked it and will be visiting again soon.

  3. two lovely pretty finishes Clare, enjoy the meet up at the weekend :)

  4. Some great finishes.

    I noticed your comment over at Nicola's (Tales from my Needle)blog and recognised the name from Aion. Good to see you in the world of blogging.

  5. Love the Tag Clare. I have added your blog to my bloglines and will be keeping my eye open for a picture of that 3D house.
