Stitching

Hello my friends.
I was to show stitching on 
Random Thought`s 
yesterday but have been unwell.
I noticed that I have reached 100 followers.
Time for me to have a draw for something I have made.
I will see how time goes and maybe bless three of them. :)


In this section my initials are to be placed.
I have yet to decide how to place them.
I  graph and then stitch at a later date.
The corners are Woven Leaf Stitch.
I started on the top right hand corner
following chart. Turned my work for the 
corners to place needle in the place.
A cute ladybird.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.

Summer School House

Hello my friends.
Summer School House slowly growing.
I have been stitching gaps across the row eg:
3 stitches then 3 up on next row till end 
then full in on return. 
Gives a lovely look to the house.
If 3 doesen`t work either 4 or 2 stitches depending where they are.
Quite pleased with effect.
Also makes stitching interesting to do. :)


I will say I have been side tracked by adding extra to 
a gift for a friend :)
Happy Stitching,
Clare.

Summer School :Lesson one

Hello my friends. 
Yesterday`s post brought my 
`Summer School`
(we are in our Winter :) )
lesson #1
design of Brenda Gervais.


The pattern,threads, fabric,needle minder and finishing ric rac.


Threads ready to start on 28ct mushroom.


Little helper while stitching one over one.
Lamp needed for this one.
My shelf is getting cluttered again!
Time to tidy up I think, :)


I started at the bottom right with the two threads over three linen
for the grass. This gave me a line to work  from.
Looks like since Friday it has been stitching. :)
Over the weekend I stitched a little more on BBD design. 


I have a little reverse stitching on the side to do,
will sort this soon. 
Happy Stitching,
Clare.

Friday Night Stitching

Hello my friends.
Last night I worked on
`Random Thoughts`.


Now all my alphabet are connecting.
A & B one over one stitching areas complete
as well.
I`m sure that I`m using called for fabric but
 the crane bird doesn`t show up that well.
Could be the lighting for photo.
I have put this away till Friday.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.

Addition to our family

Hello my friends.
Yesterday our youngest daughter brought home 
our new addition to the family.
Tillie is still taking this on board!!


She`s usually laid back like this. :)


Still taking in the new member.


His name is:
Peanuts.


Elizabeth from Paisley`s Post and I  have decided to do this
Drawn Thread pattern `Random Thought`s` as a SAL 
together.  Once I found mine. :)
Hope I won`t be too far behind.
Elizabeth has started her`s as well.


This is how much I had already stitched.
I think I will stitch this as my Friday night stitching till 
we go away and return to it once home again.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.
