Finally… Some stitching

I have finally got a bit of stitching done tonight. I made a start on Au Fil des Rêves – Trésors d’antan. I completed one side of the scissor fob… but at least it is a start!

Isn’t it great how receiving stash inspires stitching!

I received my first de fil en aiguille magazine today – Tout Rouge. There are some lovely things in there, I can’t wait to start stitching… although some of the finishing descriptions are going to challenge my french. I have to get practicing as I will using more French charts and books in the near future. Especially as my Dad is getting hold of Petites Cadeaux Brodes, Cartonnage brodé : Au fil des boîtes by Sylvie Castellano and Sophie Delaborde and possibly another couple of books for me.

I also received a chart which I am going to use for an exchange so I can’t say what it is at the moment. February 1st is post out day so I’d better get cracking

I have to also confess that I’ve subscribed to The Gift of Stitching and I’ve got a sizeable order arriving from Jayne’s Attic any day now too so I think it’s safe to say that I have fallen off the stash wagon

  1. Didnt take long for you to fall off the stash wagon Ish lol. Im just as bad I’m afraid as I was waiting (and hoping) for xmas to pass in case I got any Dinky Dyes, but alas I had to order them directly Christmas was past. Looking forward to seeing a WIP picture.
