Well I know it isn't a full page just yet, but I just had to share with you my Snowy Friends progress.  I've not stitched on 25 count for a while, but I have to say I'm loving it!  And the confetti here (in the branches) is mixed with the background making the design more varied than Bookend Kitties and with a lot more to show to the effort!
Photo: Snowy friends update - I know the page isn't finished yet but very excited that I've taken to the 25 count so well and enjoying every second!
However I also have some most amazing news! Yesterday my little sister told me I'm going to be an Auntie! So very excited for her.  So of course I'm thinking - must stitch something for her!  Tehre's no way I can get a HAED done in time for December, so I thought I'd do this Lizzie Kate design having already bought 'A Good Marriage' for their wedding next year.

I don't really start non-HAEDs anymore, however I think on this 32 count linen it will be a pleasure to work on.  I do however need a way to re-design the word 'mold' to 'mould' to convert it to UK English or I'll never live it down!  I like this design as rather than a gift to the baby, it's one her/his parents will treasure forever (I hope!).
Happy stitching!


  1. glad the HAED is going well. Congrats to your sis and what a lovely design. I'm sure it will be treasured

  2. Congratulations aunty :-) Love the new Haed. Oh yes you have to change the spelling, people here would just think you couldn't spell if you left it when everyone knows it's them who can't, lol!

  3. Lol!

    Thanks Lori - you're absolutely right - I've looked at the design and I think I can pinch a small 'o' and a 'u' to fit in nicely. Will have to wait til next month as I'm moving jobs and don't know how my tax is going to work out! xx
