One down, one to go.

A little bit more cross stitch - sorry!! Just there have been some lovely images in the cross stitcher magazine - and loved the little collection they put together for Mothers Day. So I cracked on with this one for my m-i-l:


I have added a little heart button (taken from a per una top) and added some little leaves from fabric in my little (no I mean tiny) fabric stash. Ooh which reminds me I need to ask something - at the end of the post. Sorry, I digress - lol, the lemon paper is handmade that I received from the lovely Linda at Pink Lilacs. The other patterned paper and sentiment is from my stash.

I would like to enter this into:

The latest MSE challenge - for mothers day card.
Totally Ladybug Challenge - stitching
4Crafty chicks - stitching
C.R.A.F.T - mothers day.


Thanks for looking xx

(oops nearly forgot - I am thinking of going to the Pins & Needles Show at the Newcastle Metro Arena - wondering if anyone has been and if its worth the trip up?? Thanks folks)

  8. That card is adorable, you are so organised too. You should teach yourself to crochet, I did last autumn, and when i got stuck I watched you tube tutorials for help. If I can do it anyone can. If I lived closer i would come show you.

  14. You have fabric stash and you are sewing? Love your cross stitch panel but you nearly gave me a heart attack talking about Mothers Day. Thought it was imminent and I needed to knock up the local card shop throwing pebbles at the upstairs window! Phew!!! Police custody averted.

  17. Third shock. I wasn't getting up I was going to bed! Fourth shock now I'm getting up 9.06am!
    I hear that very sweet tea is good for shocks.

  18. Have a look at the website for Pins & Needles last time there was lots of papercraft stalls, fabric, beads and gifty stuff to buy with workshops on in the middle. I think this one is more on the sewing/crochet/knit side than papercrafts. I've been to a few now and there is always something for everyone. It's £6 a ticket and £3 to park there all day. One tip though the food is crap and mega expensive ~ take your own.
    These are the exhibitors this time:
