The Stitching Bee & New Goodies

The latest round of the A Little Help from My Stitching Friends Circle, an exclusive club to the Silver Needle, is nearing the end, with only one more kit to come. I have really enjoyed the kits we have received, you can see some of my finishes here and here.  

The latest kit is this cutie by Little House Needleworks and this was one of my Stitchmaynia starts.  
I used the supplied fabric and threads, the finishing fabrics, Lady Dot trim, jute and a Mother of Pearl button were also included in the kit.  I used some mustard/brown fabric from my stash for the back of the pillow.

My very first order from the Fat Quarter shop arrived on Friday - it was quite exciting to get a pink box delivered!

I got the two latest Blackbird Designs booklets, the 2019 Prairie Schooler Santa, and a few threads I was needing.

My favourite part of the order is the Cross Stitch Journal, some Pat's Favorite Needles and this lovely tin, which will be filled in no time I'm sure.

I spent a bit of time on the weekend going back and writing up my StitchMaynia starts and finishes, and this weekend I'll add some little pics of these to the journal. I recently bought an HP Spocket printer so this size of photo is just the perfect size. I'll share about this another time.

See you soon xx

I love the bee finish, I have a thing about bees and this design is just gorgeous, especially with the lovely fabric and trim too. Fabulous stash, BBD are my favourite designers and I am hoping to add the to my stash soon too. How exciting to get one of the pink boxes! There seems to be so much more interesting things available from America but every time I have ordered from here I have had large customs and excise bills to pay on arrival, on top of the high international postage it makes it all ridiculously expensive. x

The new stitch is wonderful , having new goodies is always fun.
I did keep a journal once then I got to busy and forgot to fill it in.
But it's nice to keep.

I love your B finish! You do such lovely finishing! I wish I had the patience to try.

Lovely finish Katrina. Your new stash is wonderful.

I tend not to buy from USA because of the customs payment, although we now have a couple of great ONS that have American designer goodies.
