It's A Bunny!!



My first try at Amigurumi.
It was fun and I have already started on another animal, this time an owl.  I am just practicing at the moment getting used to stitches and tension etc.  When i'm confident I have the hang of it I will move on to bigger and better animals.

I'm Done

Well dear friends, I think I am done.  I cannot see myself returning to cross stitch anymore.  I haven't picked up a needle in over 10 months and I honestly think the time has come to say goodbye to this dear hobby.  I feel that I am at this stage where I can't see any more making of smalls or stitching larger pieces to be framed, I think you have that feeling that enough is enough, nothing else grabs you anymore and you don't want to display anything else.  I love all my current pieces and I have some wonderful gifts on display from some of my dear friends in blogland and I will always treasure those, but I just can't bring myself to make anything else cross stitch related.
I will still work on sewing projects and applique, but I don't think I will be as prolific as I once was.

Therefore I have started to sell off my cross stitch stash.  I have already sold some fabric on a Facebook group here in Aus, however with my charts I wanted to see if any of my friends were after any certain charts before I sold them on the group page.  Obviously if you are outside Australia I would need to quote you on international postage on top of the cost of the charts.  Charts will be offered at discounted prices.
If you would like to message me with a list of charts you are after then I can look through my collection and see if I have any for you.  I have a large collection of LHN, Lizzie Kate, Prairie Schooler, Blackbird Designs, Bent Creek, Plum Street Samplers and various others.  I also have a large collection of WDW threads, Gentle Arts, Victorian Motto and other hand dyed threads.  

Until next time, happy stitching everyone

Clayton's Christmas

I joined in with the Clayton's Christmas swap over at the No Fuss Swappers blog.
This was my first time swapping with this group and it was such a fun first exchange.
I received my parcel from the lovely Dzintra.  We had to include a fat 1/4 of christmas fabric, a handmade or bought ornie, some buttons and a treat.
I love my goodies, thank you Dzintra.


Until next time, happy stitching

A Belated Birthday Gift

I received this lovely parcel in the mail from my dear friend June.  
Just look at the delightful things she sent me, how sweet and the note cards will come in very handy.
Thank you June, you are a treasure!
