A kiss for snowman | Dimensions

Hello Peeps, While recuperating from my eyes surgery, back in June, I spent my time off stitching to my heart's content. The weather was warm at the time and I ended up starting a cheeky new project that would make me feel a bit cooler A kiss for snowman from Dimensions Designed by Hazel Lincoln

This beautiful design comes as a kit, which contains 18 count white Aida fabric, pre-sorted stranded cotton threads & needle. Of course, I cannot work on 18 count fabric, this is way too small for me to cope. So I have swapped it for a bigger 16 count, from Sewitall.

Under the sea SAL - Durene Jones (Part 6)

Hello Peeps! This little blog has been far too quiet these past few weeks. Unfortunately Life has been keeping me on my toes recently and because of this my stitching priorities have changed. Indeed, detached retinas & surgery, are certainly no joke and I have now decided to work and focus on the projects I like the most and really want to see finished. oOo Fear not, the beautiful and fun Under the sea SAL
designed by Durene Jones available at Lakeside Needlecraft
