Woohoo I have my laptop fixed. It was meant to be going to the shop on Tuesday but one of my husbands friends fixed it today for £10. That has made me very happy as the shop had quoted £75!! I got in to a bit of a stress about it all last weekend as I felt highly embarrassed. You see I won THIS giveaway over at Chrissie Crafts and I was all set to do a blog post with my winning prize and then the computer crashed. I felt awful for not being able to take part in Stitchy Sunday which I was very much looking forward to. Sorry Chrissie.
Anyway here is the gorgeous book I won. It has been beside my bed since I received it and I have been leafing through it each evening. The only problem with having a book like this, is that I want to stitch everything in it! It is truly a wonderful book which I highly recommend to anyone. Thank you so much Chrissie.
When I was a child my mum used to iron on transfers to a pillowcase and I would backstitch the designs in pretty colours. I haven't done anything since. Since receiving this book I have been playing with stitches (I didn't know there was so many) and pinning patterns to my embroidery pinterest board. I am looking forward to starting the heart project Chrissie sent me this week.
I have been sewing though and have just joined a few ladies on instagram with #fallfridaystitching
We spend each Friday night stitching something Autumn related. I chose a Freebie design by Blue Ribbon Designs called Acorns and Owls. This design has now retired sadly. It has been on my to do pile for years. I am stitching using the recommended DMC colours and 32ct linen. I have hardly started the design. We had a party to go to Friday night so I only managed a few stitches.
A design I have recently finished is this Lizzie*Kate one. I thoroughly enjoyed stitching this and need to spend the time to finish it in to something now.
Well thank you so much for visiting. Now I have a working laptop I will be regularly posting.
