Violet Sampler & some new patterns

I have been stitching on this lovely sampler lately and it's now almost finished. Many thanks to my friends Kath and Clare, who both helped out matching up some needed threads - it's amazing the differences in dye lots of Weeks Dye Works threads.

So some recent progress pics to share :)



It's been awhile since I bought any stitching stash and these lovely patterns arrived recently. 


I couldn't resist either when I spotted that Alicia from Posie Gets Cozy had some new felt animal kits available - Miss Juniper Kitty will be a friend to Miss Maggie Rabbit.


These should be keep me busy for awhile!  I also spent a little bit of time over the weekend kitting up some Christmas ornaments to work on once the Violet Sampler is finished and a few other small projects.

Hi Katrina,
Thanks for dropping by my blog. I've had a tiny look at yours and I think you've renewed my love of cross stitch. You do beautiful work! I have a few UFO's at the moment but not a lot of time to do them! Maybe I cook too much, ha!

Cheers - Joolz xx

Such a beautiful piece and great goodies!

Beautiful progress so far. I have this chart but not the threads. That's the problem with overdyes, they tend to be off and don't match even close to what they are supposed to be! Great new stash haul too!!
