HAED Witching Hour Finished

I can't believe I've actually finished my beautiful HAED piece
I started this on my birthday 11th August 2015. I had just been adopted by a black cat. Who we called Friske.

I have slowly stitched Witching Hour but in November I decided it had to be my focus piece. I wanted it finished but because I commission stitch for the UK magazines, it got delayed but I carried it and now it's complete.
Finished 17th April - Easter Monday - 2017
It took me 928 hours to complete on 18ct Magic Guide Aida. 2 threads over 1
I hope you love it as much as me.

Lakeside Fantasy SAL 2016/17

I've been awol again, I do apologise.

I have been enabled and have started the Lakeside Fantasy SAL 2016/17.

I thought about it when they were releasing the border back in July, but I thought, no I might not like the designs.  I saw the August release and thought, that's pretty but still held off, but when Septembers came out, I thought what the heck I'm going to do it.

So I'm playing catch up at the moment and I'm going to work on this an hour a day after today alongside my Witching Hour and Kingdom of Books WIP's, which I must put updates to on here.

I hope you all have a lovely stitching week.
Happy Stitching

Sorry for my absence

It's it been a while since I posted. 

A lot has gone on in my life mainly my dad came to live with me a month ago because he was diagnosed with terminal cancer we thought we could give him the best end of life care. Which we did. 

But sadly he passed away on Tuesday 5th July 2016. RIP Dad, miss you terribly. Will always love you. Thank you for the month together. 

On a happier note here is my latest Witching Hour Update. 

I also treated myself to a new lowery Workstand and long frame adapter. I used to have the lowery a couple of years ago but sold it. 

But I wanted a stand that was compact and unsightly so I went back to one. 

With having the adapter I'm not limited to what size frame I can have on my stand. 

I'll try and post more often. 

Happy Stitching
Hugs Shazie C

HAED Witching Hour update

I'm getting there slowly, but I must be half way now, this was on Monday 23rd May 2016, it has taken me 463 hours to get this far.

This below is where I was at last night, we have an eye!!!

 I would love to have this one finished this year but we shall see how we go on with it.  The colours are so cheeful, love it.

Love with an Open Heart by Stoney Creek

Where have a I been for the past 20+ years, I'd never taken any notice of Stoney Creek Designs, oh and now I'm in love with a good amount of them.

I stitched this one over the weekend.  I am thinking of doing the set of starting an RR to do them.

I have just mounted it on a magnet board behind it, so I can change the design.

Celtic Summer Update

Here is Celtic Summer. I've accidental changed a colour but I like it. 

I'm also liking invisible thread because it saves time changing threads to the corresponding DMC. 

Slow going but I'm happy.

Before above. 

And below where I'm at.

FFO - Touching the Autumn Sky

I pushed myself and went to Bury on my own to pick some shopping up and my frame, fought through my anxiety. While poor Don goes to the emergency dentist to try and get his tooth pulled out. 

Look at this beauty, so chuffed I can't put it into words and I've got my tiny white feather in there that fluttered down from the sky a month ago today.  You may need to zoom in to see it in the bottom right corner.
