Stitching HDs

I can now reveal the gift I stitched for Hazel who won my Blogaversary draw. I stitched a hardanger biscornu.











Hardanger Biscornu by Meg Shinall
(from The Gift of Stitching issue June 2008)

Fabric - 28ct evenweave in ecru
Thread - DMC perle 8~ & 12#, DMC 603, DMC 3348

I have also made some ornaments for Aimetu's Stitchery.


TW Design - Beginner Whitework Ornament

Fabric - 28ct evenweave in ecru
Thread - DMC stranded cotton Ecru
Mill Hill beads - #00123 cream








Six Stranded Sweets Jessica Willis Burr - Dig It

Fabric - hand dyed 28ct
Thread - SSS Jelly Beans, Apricot, Expresso, Lemonade, Wintergreen, Black Liquorice, Grape Slushy & Strawberry Jam




Both these items are for sale at the Stitchery - the designs are by kind permission of TW Designs and Six Stranded Sweets.

On Sunday we went to Monkey Forest as mum had won some tickets. It's a great day out, the monkeys are in an enclosure which you freely walk around. They are sitting all around you and walk across your path. You are not allowed to touch them but you are so close it's amazing.










and finally...

I have lost another 1.5 pound making a total now of 12 lbs lost in 8 weeks - I am so pleased and it's really easy.
