This is another of Sandy's (Sanman Originals) very cute Halloween tucks called Spider Eyes.
Only a few more stitches to go in the Spring Spot so hopefully I will be posting a picture of it in a day or two.

You cannot see the flowers around the house but I'm not happy with the yellow beads that came with the kit so I might change them for brighter ones.
Off to find a quick Halloween one to do.

I made a 3D decoupage Popcorn card to go with it

Only two more sections to go and also the words that I have missed on some of the previous sections. They say it is going to be a lot cooler next week so hopefully I will get back to stitching more.
Nearly time for the schools to break up for the summer. Jack is 12 and goes to Dane Court Grammar, he finishes on the 15th July and Tom who is still at priamry school finishes on the 17th. Tom is not happy that Jack is finishing two days before him even though he has had extra teacher training days earlier in the year.

Here is an update of The Wildflower Garden. I restitched the border of the centre garden which I had to frog. It put me off stitching it for a few days.
Thursday, 18 June 2009
I did not stitch the large flowers at each side of messy as I wanted to add the sequin flowers instead.
Back of the pinkeep, not the neatest of finishes.
So glad I finally have time to stitch again.
Wednesday, 17 June 2009
Yesterday I started a small project so hopefully I will get it finished quickly and have something to show you. I will start on the Wildflower garden again in a day or two. I don't feel like it at the moment.

Sorry about the crooked scan also the colours seem a bit dull.

These banners have been so easy to finish as Sandy's finishing instructions said to use 'hemming tape' I have never used this before and I cannot believe how easy it was to make the banners using it. As some of you may remember my sewing machine and I are not the best of friends and using the hemming tape means he can stay in the cupboard. This is my favorite finishing tip at the moment and I am going to have to look at my 'stitched but not finished pieces and see if there are anymore that can be made into banners with this magic tape.
Not had much time to stitch on the Wildflower Garden but I still have a couple of days before I have to update you on it.

Another spooky banner for my boys. This is another banner kit from the SanMan Originals newsletter it is called 'Time for a Coffin Break'. It is going to look great with our other decorations on Halloween.
I have also started Wildflower Garden by Drawn Thread. I will try and add an update once a week, I will be stitching a few small pieces as well as this, my boys have a list of pieces they want stitched for Halloween and Christmas and there are a few I want to stitch for others as well.

This is so cute and so quick to stitch. The ghost at the top and the one on the stitching came with the chart. It is one of the charts from last years SanMan Originals Halloween newsletter.
I have also popped the Ghost I stitched the other week into his tuck
Another Bank holiday this weekend, not sure what we will be doing yet, hopefully something nice to take our minds off the Dentist on Tuesday. Just the six month check up so hopefully all will be well for us all.

I also stitched a bit more of The Promise, not as much as I would have liked but hopefully I can finish the stitching on this piece in a day or two. Then it will be time for the beads and charms. Also time to start thinking about what I am going to stitch next or maybe I will finish another one of my stitched pieces into an ornament.
Wednesday, 6 May 2009
Made one of my pieces of Christmas stitching into an ornament. This is a SanMan Originals board members chart.
I also stitched a piece for Halloween, another SanMan Originals board members chart. Just need to find a grey star to add just above the ghosts head and a tuck.
I must go and start on the second part of Tonia's SAL.

I also made another pillow this time minus the frill. LOL
I managed to get some pine cone fabric to match the design. I Pine For You was a chart from the from SanMan Originals Christmas SAL.
Monday, 27 April 2009
I have also finished Sandy's (SanMan Originals) Sew Snow. I would like to make this into a pillow as well but I cannot find any fabric I like to go with it.
I must stitch a little of The Promise but I also want to finish a couple more items while I have the sewing machine out. Who know's when it will see the light of day again. Also I have promised Tonia (Oakhaven designs) that I will start her currant SAL.
Thursday, 23 April 2009
I decided that as the sewing machine was out I would finish something else as well. I picked a stitched piece and started to make a pillow. It is taking so long I'm afraid my sewing machine and I are not the best of friends. I will finish it hopefully tomorrow.
Tuesday, 21 April 2009
I have not stitched much on The Promise but I had to stitch myself a scissor keeper as my lovely beaded scissor fob broke. No batteries in the camera so a scanner picture again.
I decided to stitch The Spring Scissor Keeper by Drawn Thread. It was such a quick stitch and hopefully tomorrow I will make it into the keeper for my scissors.
I am also stitching Sandy's Sew Snow. This is so cute but I am not going to show it to you until I have finished stitching it.

I have just found out that I can update my blog by email! Let's hope this works as it has taken me ages to work out how to insert a photo into an email.
This is an update of The Promise by Shepherds Bush.I could not get it all in the scanner so the top part is missing this time. I'll have to make sure I use the camera next time.Fingers crossed this works.
Well it almost worked, just the photo did not show, not sure what I did wrong I will have to look into it later. I have added the photo now.

Well Easter is finished and all the eggs are eaten, well except two and they are Jack's. He always makes his last as long as possible.
Wednesday, 8 April 2009
I have not had a lot of time for stitching as the boys have been home and we have taken Charlie our Labrador out for walks sometimes along the tracks by the farms. Charlie loves these walks and it keeps the boys off The World of Warcraft. I'm sure they would spend all day on there if they could. LOL

Three more cute finishes all from SanMan Originals. First is the Cup of Winter
This one has not scanned very well it is a lot nicer in RL.
Next is Spring Tuck.
I love tucks they are a great way to finish small pieces of stitching.
Last one today is Ocean
This one came with the frame and will go in my bathroom.
Thank you all for visiting and thank you for the comments you have left.

The second is another of Sandy's tuck's. This one is called Buzz and is from the February newsletter.
Not sure what I am going to stitch next, off to have a look.
