Heart SAL Part 3 completed - 23.05.13

I've been trying to keep up with the Heart SAL and so far apart from the border I am managing to keep up.

Here's a picture of part three completed.

I'm stitching on 20 count aida from Crafty Kitten, the colour is the February 2011 Limited Edition.

The border is stitched in Jodyri Smoke and Mirrors.

The top row going left to right are stitched in 1 - Jodyri Colour Cascade, 2 - Thread Pickerz Silkz Robin's Nest, 3 - Thread Pickerz Silkz Amazon Parrot, 4 - Jodyri Cha Cha Cha.

The second row going left to right are 1 - Jodyri Arctic Splash, 2 - Rascal's Rainbow.

I've decided to start stitching items for some of my good friends and have sent them a list of questions from which I am going to try and stitch them something they love.  I am going to start on the first one next.  I will post pictures here but won't say who the stitching is for.  Once the person has received it I will reveal more.

Keep stitching and smiling

Perpetual Calendar Part 6 - completed 08.05.13

Here's the latest finish on Perpetual Calendar it's for February.

I changed the colours a bit from those recommended. I changed one of the greens to the yellow.  I do love how this has turned out.  The yellow stripes are in summer sunset, the green stripes in rainforest and the purple is perfect purples all from Jodyri designs.  Michelle now has her own website so if you want to buy any or her gorgeous threads or charts please visit her at

I've changed how I'm rotating again - just working through each of my projects one at a time.  I am also working on a SAL from a group on Facebook - Thread Pickerz Silkz.  Eileen has designed 16 hearts for people to stitch with two being released each week and I am going to try and keep up with the hearts as they are released.  Eileen also sells gorgeous hand dyed silks some of which I am going to use in the SAL.  The other project I am now going to work on is the Lizzie Kate Design - Merry Christmas by the Letter.

Keep stitching and smiling
