Various starts


I've started several new projects over the weekend
I know, this is a bit naughty, isn't it?

---ooOoo---

Summertime pincushion from Sunken Treasures
I love everything about it, the colours, the fresh summery feel and it looks so much fun to stitch,
A bit like a biscornu withouth the quirky angles!
This is what it will look like when finished



 And this is what I've done so far...
Unfortunately, I will have to un-stitch a few things
I've worked on 2 threads instead of 1 in some places :(
I should know better & read all the instructions first!



---ooOoo---

Vintage Christmas from Country Cottage Needleworks
I wanted to stitch this one for sooo long!
This is what it will look like when finished


And this is what I've done so far...
Very little!!



---ooOoo---

On top of the World from Bothy Threads
I have several Gorjuss♥ kits in my stash and this one is my all time favourite!

I'm going to focus on this from now on until it's finished
This will be a birthday present for my niece
She is not expecting this at all, so I hope she will love it & treasure it!!
(Let's hope she's not reading my blog too, otherwise the surprise effect will be wasted)
So this is what it will look like when finished...



Isn't she adorable?
And this is what I've stitched so far...



Right, that's me done!!

As you can see I've got a lot to do...
And won't be able to stitch much over the weekend
as we have a end of season rugby tour near Bath planned...
So better put in as many little crosses as I can now!

Happy Stitching!
Mii x

---ooOoo---

Trois nouveaux projets en cours!!!
Je dois être un peu folle ☺
Summertime, Vintage Christmas & On top of the world
Le dernier sera un petit cadeau d'anniversaire pour ma nièce!
J'espère qu'elle aimera Gorjuss♥

A tout à l'heure...

  12. Nice new projects to start.
    The pin cushion still looks nice even if some parts need just one thread.
    Hope your Niece doesn't find out about her surprise.

  18. Lovely pieces. The mattress pincushion is just right for this time of year. Gorjuss Girl designs are so appealing... must be great fun to stitch.

    And if this is the naughtiest you get, I wouldn't worry about your morals!
