Prairie Schooler

I thought I'd write a quick post to make all of readers aware that Prairie Schooler will be closing early next year as I know a lot of you stitch their designs.

Make sure you get a hold of all those designs that are on your wish lists!

Not much stitching this weekend as I've spent a lot of time gaming due to a double xp event :P However, I did and start and finish this small grumpy cat kit by Luca-S.

It's cold here in the UK! This was my first trip to Nazaré, Portugal and it won't be my last...I only burnt towards the end of the holiday which is a record!

What are your plans for the summer?

A few finishes

I've been meaning to post this since the start of last month but I didn't get around to it. I do indeed have a few finishes but I thought I'd let you know (since I've talked about it a few times) that my first year at uni has ended well. I just need to do another assignment for a support module.

I've finished 4 small projects:

1) A card which was free with an issue of The World of Cross Stitching which I forgot to take a photo of before sending it!

2) A quick L*K stitch for my Dad as a house warming present

3) A small section of the Fleur de Lys SAL that was on Brodeuse Bressane's facebook group. I intend to make this into a card.

4) Another L*K, Welcome Baby for a friend.

I've bought a lot of some fabric recently and now that I've sorted out the sizing of the patterns, I'm going to try and get around to actually making some of them! I have made a beach cover up but need to grab a better photo at a later point and then I'll write a post about it.

I have managed to finish off the quilting for one of the duffel bags, it now just needs to be made into a bag however I am not 100% happy with the webbing that I bought so will have to buy another before putting it together.

I'm currently working on some stitching for an exchange so no photos of that at this point but I will share one of my current view...

I'm sorry I have taken so long to write this and promise to definitely blog at least once a month!
