If you follow me on Instagram; you would have seen this image pop up in your feed today! Yep, I have purchased, downloaded and printed off my first ever Heaven and Earth Designs pattern. This pattern is called Brigid’s Shamrock and I fell in love with it when I saw it in the Summer Stitch Day video by JustKeepStitchin’ – it was being done by an attendee at the event!
In one of my videos, I remember saying that I do not think that I could ever do a HAED pattern; as they are too large! *face palm* – I will keep you all informed with my progress.
Next the next row…
Oh yes! I have done it! I am now a proud member of the FlossTube community – may channel Dreaming in Aida currently has three videos and 57 subscribers (*at time of writing).
Here are the videos:
FlossTube #1 – Intro, WIPs, Finishes & Plans
FlossTube #2 – What have I let myself into?
FlossTube #3 – a little later than planned!
From watching other FlossTubers, I have been recommended many more – my list is getting longer and longer. Are there any you would reconmend? Please let me know, either here on the blog or at my channel.
As I have finished both “The Story Time Sampler” and “You’re Dino-mite” from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery; I am now working on “A Very Merry Christmas Town” as a Christmas present for my grandparents. I am still working on this piece at least one hour a day as part of the #TheStitchingHour2017 tag on Instagram. I have so many patterns I want to get started on. I feel that a pattern rotation may be in order; especially when you see what I have signed up for!
I have some exciting news! I have joined the following Stitch A-Longs (SALs):
KLT Charting – Russian Doll SAL – this started yesterday, 12th July. I am waiting for my DMC and Aida to arrive and then I will crack on with this. I cannot decide if I should do them in one long piece or in individual dolls. This is a fortnightly release; so I will need to gt my head down for this one.
Lakeside Needlecraft – Spooky Halloween SAL – this SAL does not officially start 1st August; but I am ready to start this SAL. This is a weekly release! I have my DMC and Aida – just need the boarder; which is released on 1st August.
I have ordered MANY needle minders from The Everyday Stitcher, a Heaven and Earth Design – Brigid’s Shamrock and a Rainbow Birth Sampler from Little Dove Designs. I am going to make the sampler twice; one for a close friend and the second for a former student. I hope that they like them! I can’t wait to show you all in my next video!
Until the next row…
