THOUSANDS OF FREE BLOGGER TEMPLATES

Been a while ....

Been a while since my last update but have been having probs with my shoulder and neck etc .... so not been doing too much stitching but have finally managed to get a start on Victoria Sampler Spring Box ...


Not a very good photo cos it looks like I am stitching on blue !!
I am doing this one for myself and it will be used as a jewellery box ...

Also had the sampler for my friend finally framed ready for her birthday at the weekend .... this was stitched on white evenweave using purples and the mountboard was pale lavender with a silver frame - again not a good photo as I found it difficult to find a place with no shine on the glass lol


Managed to get some more jewellery made .... I bought some lovely jasper gemstones from Jewellery Maker and have made three sets and still have beads left !!   :)



These can be found with lots of others on my online shop:

If anyone is interested in anything please get in touch with me direct and I will offer a discount and I will post to other countries for stitching friends  :)

Just a few of the pieces I have made - all are made using genuine gemstones and 925 sterling silver



The garden is looking a bit dismal now after so much wind and rain ....  it is looking more like a jungle every day .... I will start to cut back on some of the borders etc, but I always like to leave some in over winter so that any small creatures can hide there out of the cold ... I still have my little garden toad living with us as I see him/her from time to time ....

Not long now till our Friendly Stitchers stitching group have our yearly meet up at the Harrogate stitching show in November .... really looking forward to this  .... we stay for the weekend in a lovely hotel just over the road from the show - very handy ;)  ... and we have a grreat time after dinner chatting and showing off our aquired stash  :)

Well I guess that is all from me for now so will say bye ....

I like the sampler framed up, but I can't make out the words Val. But grats on the finish anyways, lol. It' looks good. Will be waiting for more progress on the Spring Box. Grats on the jewelry. It's looking great!! Makes me wish I had more money, lol.
