Yes i am still here…
not many pics this time as i spent much of the last 7-8 days on the CC piece i can’t show pics of..
but i do have a few pictures still to share .
the first one is my black doodle cloth which uses all silks from HDF .. see link on side bar thingy
it is on Black PR 30 ct evenweave linen ( thanks vicky) 1×1
and it has heaps of colours lol i do actually have them all documented as i show each one seperately on the hdf board

next is my hearts sampler which i thought i had posted.. but i can see i have not .. oops
the chart is from the caron collection which i ordered from Shakespeares Peddler it is stitched 1×1 on 34 ct legacy linen i have 12 hearts to go and then i will start again on black fabric.. all the siks are hdf , either current, Limited edition or discontinued

the third opiece is a rush opiece i am doing .. i wickedly forgot my friend vicki’s birthday .. iowas sititng opposite her drinking coffee last friday and i suddenly said.. i missed your birthday!! and she laughed.. yes i had missed it , but she knew how ill i was and had let it slide.. bad girl..
soi i am stitching Debbie Draper’s Freebie Spots of Fun on 34 ct legacy linen 1×1 using a LE spools colour from HDF which is just delicious IRL ( sue you would like this one ) i see her in a fortnight for coffee again and i want to finish it and get it framed before then.. nothing like setting myself targets in real life this looks more like rose potpourri in colour the reds are redder and the pinks are pinker and the graduation of colour looks wonderful
now a question.. observation.. or something.. for the aussie girls..
have any of you noticed that not many of the nashville releases have made their way to aussie ONS’
i am going nutty waiting for various charts to appear.. some of which would be perfect for my gift stitching which i am trying to do atm .. and would have done for Vicky instead of the freebie ( i am thinking here oif the la d da alphabet sampler, or the jbw new country heart and puppy charts , stitched together as she has a lovely dog)
there ar a few but in general there are hardly any of them..i am really torn atm between not supporting aussie shops and doing an overseas order and continue to sit around and wait ..
yes i did email one and the indication was they would come in , but that was ages ago and i am still waiting, waiting ,waiting
next great news for Character Creation fans the message board is back, new and improved ( thanks dave)
the info is HERE and i can’t wait to see the new chart hinted at!
i am now in a 2 week cycle of HAED’s french Filigree and martina dey Serenity sampler sttictching orgy..
it is weird doing a original haed chart instead of a normal one i think i will ask Michele if i can go back to lady in a meadow after this rotation and finish her i am missing the soothing rythm of that style of stitching.. i really enjoyed my last week of doing it on a CC piece and was reluctant to move on
