Stitchy update & more goodies!

Since finishing my halloween sampler I've been struggling to decide what to focus on next, I decided to get a page of my HAED finished while I was thinking about it :)

Here's what the finished design will look like

and here's my first completed page stitched 2 over 1 tent stitch on 25 count.

I also received some goodies today from the lovely Janet in my RAK group at the Stitch Specialists, I love everything but especially the little snail tape measure! I've already started munching the choccies, oh dear!

I think I'm going to try and catch up on one or two of my SAL's this weekend as I haven't stitched on them since June! wish me luck :)

At last, a finish!

Hi all, sorry again for not blogging regularly but I haven't really had much to report until today.

I've finally got something finished, my L*K Mystery Halloween Sampler, woohoo!

I decided to finish it as a hanging and chose some cute halloween fabric to back it with, it's the first time I've made stitching into a hanging so I'm quite pleased with myself :)

Here's some piccies

In other news the awesome Ruth from my RAK group over at the Stitch Specialists has spoiled me with lots of gorgeous threads which I received in the mail today, I'm so pleased with them!!

I've been a bit behind sending my parcels out but hope she'll love what I'm sending as much as I love these :)
