Le Challenge – Round

It’s been awhile since I participated in Le Challenge and I kept meaning to try and finish something for each month :O Never happened though but this month’s theme is round and I have a few finishes this month that fits that!

2016-02-14-08.31.58.jpg.jpegI stitched this little guy up last night- isn’t he soooooooooo cute? Those who have been around awhile know I absolutely love anything woodland related 😀 And the words… well that’s me or was especially on Friday afternoon at work! Struggling with a very bad cold/head thing and expected to pull rabbits out of the hat and such like…..

The pattern is by the lovely Jenny of NerdyMcSticherson who has a lovely Etsy shop full of patterns.

Now obviously it’s in a round hoop… for reference of size the hoop is 4″. I’m really wanting to make a bigger one with a floral border as pastelly flowers go with everything right??

Linking up to this month’s Le Challenge– feel free to go check out everyone’s interpretation of the theme.

Cross Stitching!

So… awhile back you might have noticed I started dabbling in another craft… cross stitching!

Once I’ve got the basics it’s snowballed and here are some of what I’ve been working on…………

P1130343-001Isn’t it amazing? Although next time I won’t choose as white an aida!

harrypottersamplerI’m also doing some stich-a-longs…. this one is the #cloudsfactoryharrypotter hosted by NerdyMcStitcherson over on IG. I’m also planning to do the 2015 and 2016 Frosted Pumpkin ones too 🙂 Just waiting on the pattern and kit for Let’s Go On An Adventure.

Tonight it’s Gotham so guess best crack on and do some more work! Got a deadline of just under a week to finish another cross stitch…. seems I do like a bit of pressure!
