Good afternoon Peeps!
Now that my CJC 2016 is finished and that
I have gone back to my normal stitching rhythm, I can show you my first finish out of the 15.

Collect Moments from Lizzie Kate




Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric Tin colour, from Sew It All
2 over 1 with DMC threads




Started & finished on 2nd Jan 2016  Total stitching time: No idea as I wasn't yet keeping track!




Finished off as a pinkeep
Using Tilda fabric & pink trim from stash
The backing fabric is the one showing on my first picture.




I am currently working on a small Easter exchange piece, however
I have already managed to finish off a second CJC 2016 piece.
Stay tuned!




Toodles,
Mii

Good morning! CJC 2016 #14 is Best Friends From My Big Toe Designs This is how it looks when finished This is my start... The chart was kindly gifted by Rachel when we first met. Stitched on Sew It All 16 count Aida fabric Aqua colour Using DMC threads 2 over 1 Stitching time so far: 2hr 15mn Apologies again for the poor quality photo. It was dark outside at the time & I had to switch the light on. No doubt it will look much better & different next time I blog about it, when it will be finished :) Bear with me, only one more start to go for the CJC 2016... Toodles, Mii

Hello Peeps! CJC 2016 #13 is Let It Snow - 6 Fat Men series From Lizzie Kate This is what the finished design looks like This is what my start looks like so far My model is stitched on Sew It All 16 count Aida fabric Cloud winter sky 2 over 1, using DMC threads Stitching time to date: 2hr 55mn Surprisingly this is adequate to this morning's weather as we woke up with a lovely dusting of snow (which soon disappeared thanks to the rain!) I love this design, the colours are perfect and doesn't that snowman looks handsome with his colourful scarf? :) Only 2 more starts to go and then back to normal. Toodles, Mii 

CJC 2016 #12

Good morning! Another day in the challenge. CJC 2016 #12 is Wonderland From The Trilogy This is how the design will look when finished
And this is my small start... This is a kit, and was gifted to me by Shirlee many moons ago. The design is stitched on 30 count Grey Clay Northern Cross linen 2 over 2 using Weeks Dye Works threads. Also provided are the little snowflakes embellishments The design include cross stitch, Rhodes, Smyrna & Long Stitch Stitching time so far: 2hrs Although this is worked on linen (which I am not a fan of), this is actually really nice and pleasant to stitch on. It is also fun thanks to the variety of stitches used. These I can cope with, they are not difficult and do look lovely when finished. I am looking forward to go back on this cardinal design :) 3 more starts to go... Toodles, Mii

CJC 2016 #7

Good morning Peeps! This is CJC 2016 #7 and I am back with my favourites: LK small projects :) Live Simply From Lizzie Kate This is what it will look like when finished And this is what my pitiful start looks like! Stitched on Sew It All 16 count aida fabric Confetti colour 2 over 1 using DMC threads Stitching time so far: 2h15mns Not sure if I like it yet. I've tried to be bold with my choice of fabric but I don't think it's working for this design. It is most likely that I will start it again on a less daring fabric. What do you think, any advice?? Only 8 more days to go! Toodles, Mii

The top left hand side.


Stitched on Sew tt All 16ct aida fabric White colour 1 over 1 using black DMC thread I know blackwork is to be worked on evenweave fabric but had none handy, so aida will have to do...
I am still delighted with my start!
I have a long way to go but I thoroughly enjoyed working on something different.
I honestly can't wait to go back on this project. Some of you will have also noticed this is not a small start!! I hope you are impressed ;) Toodles, Mii
