So excited!

Just wanted to share with you that the little Dragon's head has been finished!

The confetti on the glass stem is a nightmare and it's been very slow going, reminds me of the bottle, but fortunately this is much smaller and at least when I'm working in columns, there is some light relief in the dragon's body.

Happy stitching,

3 weeks in

Just to update you on my job search - it seems that I've put the stitching to the back ground and got stuck into application forms!

And today I found out that I got an interview for one of them!

Happy Stitching!

Page 4 is Finished!!!

Well after the month I've had, I've finally finished page 4!

So here it is:

Hope you like it.  So page 5 here I come, however with me being busy applying for jobs etc it may not be as quick progress as I'd like.

Also I'm starting a little business Arty Sam - not even had time to finish my blog for it yet that's how busy I've been!  I will post here to let you know when it's up and running!

Happy stitching!

I'm back!

Well it's been a hectic September! I was made redundant and my last day was yesterday and had to prioirtise Baby Friends (below) for a colleague - she loved it and I really enjoyed stitching all the detail and even the french knots!

I also did this piece of charity stitching as a square on a quilt.  It's a child's drawing converted to cross stitch.

So what next I hear you ask! Well going to be putting in lots of hours doing Curl Up and hopefully catch up this month in between looking for new jobs.  I will also be making Christmas cards to take around to friends and hopefully sell some!  also going to look into starting some new crafts too!

Updates will be coming more quickly now I'm a lady of leisure or housewife!  Oh and will also be making lots of cakes and cooking in general - I love to cook but never seem to have time!

Happy Stitching! xxx
