It's been a while since I've posted, I'm sorry!
I've had a long Easter break away by the coast and then a hen party so there hasn't been much free time for blogging. I'll be back posting more about my Australia trip after this short stitching update.
I've been doing a fair bit of stitching, and I've completed the following:
|Home Sweet Home|
The World of Cross Stitching free kit from ages ago
Dimensions Gold Collection, Petites
I loved the small Home Sweet Home one and mostly stitched it on the tube. I really like the Travel Memories piece as well, but I HATED stitching it. I'm not sure if it's because it's a petites kit and the needle was smaller than I'm used to but I found it hurt my hands a little to stitch this one and push the needle through. It also seemed to take much longer than I expected it to. And I was worried that with some of the colours I got right down to the last bit of thread, and some I had heaps left. I don't think I unpicked much of it so I'm not quite sure what happened. I have 2 more petites kits that I bought at the same time, which I'm not going to start until I've got over this one.
Now I'm finished I love how it looks. But I never want to see the pattern or the threads again, so I'm giving away this chart and the spare threads so you can colour match. The majority of stitching is in half stitches and mine was stitched on 18 count ivory Aida.
If you'd like to win the pattern and spare threads, just leave a comment on this post and I will draw a winner in 2 weeks time on the 22nd April. If you post about the competition on your blog, let me know and you'll get an extra entry. If nobody wants it, I'm burning it :)
