A Finish

Hi 
There was a problem with the line up of the mystery Sal chart between step 1 and 2. 
When I found where I was to keep going it kind of put me off stitching it.
I will get back to it just not now. Sorry.
Oh and I had to order more kreinik anyway.

I thought I would go back to where this year started for me and I now have a finish.

Hide n Squeak


It took all Saturday to stitch the backstitching and I think I liked it better without it but I'm not going to unpick it all no way.

So what do you think?

Now onto something that has no backstitch, so over the backstitching for a while.

Happy Stitching!!!

Mystery Sal Starts

Hi all

Here is step 1 of the mystery Sal I'm doing. 


I hope my counting is right and its on the right spot with the fabric.

MS is called Moon Sweet Moon

I'm using fabric from Sew it all called stormy sky and its 16 count Aida.

So far it's very sparkly. I'm doing all the backstitch and any beads last.

And here is a update on the Queen mermaid, she has been put away for now as I've been coloring my animorphia coloring book.


My next post should be step 2 on the sal. Happy Stitching!!!

Easter With A Mermaid

Hi, Happy Easter to all my stitchy friends 



I would like to thank the 3 lady's who helped me find a new place for threads and beads. 
I went with 123 stitch and hope I get them in the mail soon. 

So I'm still stitch the queen mermaid and here is a update on her


I'm hoping to stitch her over Easter. I want to move on to A Stitch In Time but right now I'm staying with my queen. 

I was thinking the other day as I was looking at a few blogs that we show our stitching but not what we use. Eg type, size of frame if we use one. A few charts I see like the huge heaven and earth ones I would love to know how people handle all the fabric. 

So I ask you out there on your blog if you have one to take a photo of your frames with your stitching and also how you hold them if not by hand. Pass the question along on your blogs? 

If you ask me I would say most of the time i use my hand to hold and stitch, I used to use a frame for the small ones but now I don't. For a really big heaven and earth one like a stitch in time I'm using a big frame here is a photo, it needs a like fix and then I hope to stitch again on it.


It's not a great photo but you get the idea.

Happy Easter and I hope you find lots of time to eat chocolate and stitch! Look forward to seeing how you all stitch.

Queen Mermaid

Hi, I would like to thank you for all your best wishes for my mum. 
She is doing ok, has a long list of things she can and can not do for a year but with my help she will be ok.

On to stitching

Here is before


And now


I ready like the colors and stitching her. 

I've joined up to Passione Ricamo Mystery Sal MO5. 
It starts 1st May. 

Don't know if I will be starting then.

I need help!

I've been trying to get the Kreinik and Petite Treasure braid rainbow galley threads and mill hill beads. The place I go to has closed down on me and now I don't know where to go.

Can anyone tell me of a place that sends to Australia or is in Australia that has all the above in one place and a big huge range? I don't want to go to 3 different places if possible. 

Please help.

That's it for now Happy Stitching

Plans change

Hi, I've been so busy and when I do have time I have not wanted to stitch on hide.
Not a lot has been done.

I say in my title plans change because I've been stitching mini pirate for the last 2 days when I can at night and I'm loving it.

So I know I would stitch charts by month, I'm not going to do that anymore but you will still see all the charts I said I was going to stitch this year and the new one hide n squeak will get done sometime this year too. That is my hope.

So update on hide n squeak 


My next post will be on mini pirate with a page finish.
Hope you all understand my change of plans, I did say I never keep them.

Happy stitching!!!

Hide Again

I'm still stitching on Hide n Squeak. 

I'm going to finish this chart before I move on even if it goes into February, which I think it will. 

I'm having a hard time just being able to stitch for any length of time, so it's a little here and there over the week, when I can fit it in.

So here is my weeks update


Happy Stitching!!!
