Back from the framers

December 17, 2011 Nikki

My finished pictures are back from the framers and they look gorgeous.  They’ve done a fantastic job with the stretching and framing I’ll definitely be getting more done there. I haven’t got a lot of stitching done this week, a […]

A start and a finish

November 14, 2010 Nikki

Well I ended up starting Whispers after all but I have yet to take a photo as I only spent a few days stitching before the stitch along week started.  Whispers is my first attempt stitching over one on 28 […]

Sunny Update

October 15, 2010 Nikki

I really love the bright colours in Sunny even if it does mean lots of colour changing and confetti stitches.  I’m getting to use colours that I have never used but bought years ago when making up my DMC thread […]

Stitching along

July 9, 2010 Nikki

Train of Dreams 2nd July

I really don’t like the hot weather and it’s been hot and stuffy here for quite long enough, which although it’s only been a week or two is still long enough for me.  It’s so stuffy and it’s putting me […]
