hi just to let you all know I have a new blog just for my colouring, I will post my 1st colouring very soon and I hope you all will take a look. I'm still cross stitching so will post on it in December.
Lets start with November's TUSAL just one more to go.
Ok Now for the stitching.
Here is more of Sweet Pea before I put her away. She now has legs.
After Sweet Pea,
I felt like stitching one of my old wips and after looking at them I got out Rose Petal Angel.
But there's a problem I've lost part of the key that tells you what colour to stitch. Lucky that I can go by what I have already done for most of it. You should have seen me hunting for it, it was a mess. lucky I still have the part that tells me the combined colours and the details/back stitch.
As I hope you can see I only did a little on her arm.
I got sidetracked by family and now another gift to stitch.
Which brings me to a new start called Tiger Reflection
Here is what it will look like
I forgot what it's like to stitch on black. No time limit on this one.
That's good as it's going away I'm thinking I will now stitch more of Rose Petal Angel or QS April Fairy, I'm not sure yet, maybe both.
Other news my sister is the drawer in the family and I asked her if she would do me a cover for my A2 book. I told her it had to have cross stitch title and fantasy.
She ended up doing a A3 which I can still work with and left me to colour.
Here it is. I'm hoping you can see it and no I have not coloured it yet. I will show you when I have the page A2 done.
On the colouring, so many books are out now for adults to colour and this week I got into it too. So much so that I want to get a few tomorrow when I'm out. Here's the book I have and what I've done.
Pale in the photos, its a little brighter then this.
I've also been thinking about next year as I got my Calendars
I love Love Love my Fairyland Calendar
Anyway I'm not going to join a group or tell you I'm only going to stitch on this chart because you all know I did not keep that one this year. No I'm just going to stitch and post on what I do. Easy!
I've been thinking a lot this week as I stitch on sweet pea 'where will I put her?' I don't really have anymore room on my walls. Not only that but I'm already storing picture frames. So I remembered an idea another blogger had of putting them in a big book. Saves space and money, keeps the stitching clean and later I can go get it framed if I want to. It's a win win don't you think.
I'm thinking I will still get any heaven and earth stitching framed maybe and of course the gifts that I do.
So today I went shopping and got this A2 book
It's A2 which I'm hopeful will fit all my stitching, it has 20 pockets and if I use both sides 40 so lots of stitching. All I need really.
As I was saying I've been stitching sweet pea, not a lot has been done because I got into a really great book and could not put it down.
My mum has been baking cookies for Halloween and they are yum! Just a few little spiders.
On that note I wish everyone a happy scary Halloween for the 31st
Not a lot of stitching as I've been sick, and I'm spring cleaning. It's out with the stuff I don't want anymore. It's amazing just how much stuff we keep. Bags of clothes, shoes, CDs, lots of paper and a few nick knacks, all out the door.
