Midweek update

Spring has well and truly arrived here, the past few days have been just gorgeous, not a cloud in the sky all day, although its still been a tad chilly first thing in the morning. I noticed in our garden at work yesterday, our freesias have started flowering - freesias have to be one of my favourites of the spring flowers.

Thank you everyone, for the lovely comments on my finishes last week - I truly appreciate them all :) I have to say that my time for visiting all your blogs has become a bit limited lately - I like to find time to stop by but may not have time to leave a comment every time.

ok, so time for an update. This is where I'm at with Shepherds Bush Jillian stocking, I stitch on this on Sundays, a SAL with Kath.

next up is a small Christmasy finish from over the recent weekend:


Ho Ho Ho by Shepherds Bush, stitched on 10ct Tula

Not sure how I will finish this one, maybe find a small frame for it perhaps.

I've now completed another row of Sampler Game Board, sorry this isn't such a good pic.

Can you see the cute sheepie?

This week I've been stitching Christmas ornaments - I've become a little behind in my ornie stitching over the past few months. As regular readers of my blog will know, each year I like to stitch ornaments for some of my family members and several friends so I like to try and stitch at least two ornaments per month. I'm planning to stitch about half a dozen over the next few weeks and then have a finishing session one Saturday or Sunday.

I got some wonderful new stash in the mail on Monday from Needlecraft Corner, I could not resist the new Just Nans - Christmas Biscornu and Pearl Angel, and I also gave into temptation and bought Lady Scarlet's Secret Journey. For Just Nan fan's have you seen this? Too irresistable for me, lol.

Katrina,

I'm so sorry about the last comment. I swear my fingers go faster than my brain sometimes! I was getting your blog mixed up with Karoline's (http://karolinescorner.blogspot.com/). I'm sure you're not expecting - right?? LOL! Sorry again! I love all your finishes and wips! They're all so pretty! :)

Gill said...

Beautiful stitching, as always. I love that Gameboard!

Alison said...

Hi Katrina...I hope you have three skeins of the Concord for that stocking as all the reports I've read say 2 is not enough! :) Great work as usual.

Karoline said...

Your wips are looking lovely Katrina especially the Gameboard

Susan said...

I've always loved Jillian's stocking - one day, I'm going to stitch it for myself.

Good luck with catching up with your ornaments - I hadn't stitched any at all this year, and finally decided that I should do some. I'm hoping to stitch 2 a month, also. Maybe you'll keep me motivated!

Wendy said...

Your WIP's look great! The Sampler Gameboard is really coming along beautifully!!

cathymk said...

Lots of lovely progress Katrina! I love the sheep on the Gameboard! Just adorable!

Michelle said...

Both your gameboard and your stocking are looking beautiful! I really must find the time to stitch that gameboard, I've had the chart forever!! I love the new JN pieces, especially the Pearl Angel, so is so pretty in that frame!

Mindi said...

Lovely progress on the gameboard and the stocking, both are looking very cute. I really need to adopt your plan of spreading out my ornament stitching throughout the year. There's no way I'll get everything done I want to in the next couple of months.

Sylvie said...

Your gameboard is beautiful and no need to say I love the stocking :)

Becky K in OK said...

Nice progress. I love the HO HO HO.

Jenna said...

Christmas Workshop is great! I immediately wrote to The Silver Needle and had them reserve one for me. I'll pick it up at CATS in Hershey at the end of the month. I'll be gorging on Just Nan designs, I think!

your work is simply stunning. The stocking is beautiful and the gameboard is fabulous. The gameboard has moved onto my wish list and everytime I see your progress my wish gets stronger

Chiasmata said...

Great stitching! You're really getting into christmas early.

Kathy said...

Love the Gameboard, its gorgeous. I have this in my stash waiting to be stitched.

I love your christmas stitching too, I must get organised and start myself lol.

Hugs xxxxx

Isabelle said...

It seems we've enjoying the exact same kind of weather Katrina :) though on opposite sides of the seasons.

Your WIPs are lovely - Jillian's stocking is my favourite in the SB collection.

Von said...

It's wonderful to see all your lovely stitching, Katrina! I'm not able to comment as much as I'd like either lately, as it's quite a job just to try to keep up with the reading!

Margaret said...

Love all your WIPs Katrina but especially your Game Board. You're really making great progress on it.

Squazi said...

I love the gameboard. Another one to add to my wishlist. Well Done!

What a cute finish, and your SB one is looking great too. Congratulations on getting another row done on the game board, I love all the little animals on this one.
