Got a bit more done of In Harmony, a lot of what I've done today has been in half stitch. With plenty of blending colours.

Went my local hobby craft today and picked up two popcorn knitting kits (they was going cheap.) I have already done Souffle the duck pictured in the middle. Souffle was my first knitted teddy, before him I could only do scarfs. Took me a week to make and I was very pleased with him. So I have Biscuit and Cocoa to make now :-)

In Harmony WIP

End of day 2 on In Harmony. Managed to get one of the wolves head done and a little bit of the other. Already worried I'm going to run out of thread, it keeps going all bitty and I end up wasting it, I'll see how it goes. Navy Aida been a bit hard to work with as the holes are not very clear, have had to unpick a few stitches :-(

Day Dreamer Finished

I finished Suzy's Zoo Day Dreamer today. Run out of a couple of colours from the kit but Lucky had them in my collection. It didn't have a lot of back stitching which was nice. So here it is, needs a bit of ironing :-)
On the 8th and 9th this month I went the knitting and stitching show at Alexandra Palace in London. Spent a lot of money and added a bit to my stash. These are the goodies I got:
Decided I'm going to start In Harmony by dimensions tomorrow. I had been wanting this kit for a while so when I saw it at the knitting and stitching show there was no hesitation.

WIP update

Just a quick update on Day Dreamer

Thursday, 22 October 2009

Not the most successful day!

Didn't get much stitching done today on day dreamer, added a bit more to the sky.
Went charity shop craft hunting today. Verdict ..........there are no good charity shops in my area at least for craft bargains. Did get a book Cross Stitch Silhouettes which I think has some nice charts in. And some ladybird buttons, thought I might add one to day dreamer maybe on Witzy's foot or the flower. And my Dad got me the cross stitch pattern creator from a boot sale for 10p. So a few bit added to my collection :-)

Suzy's Zoo Update

This is the first WIP picture of Suzy's Zoo day dreamer. Think I've made a good start to it, most of the blue sky is using half stitch so it's made it faster to stitch. Except when I forget I'm half stitching and cross stitch instead and have to unpick it, oops.

Today I finished doing weight lifting by Margaret Sherry, only took a day and half as its so small. It was a cute design to do.
