Lizzie Kate - Jingles - sideways

Hi, Here's where I'm at on Lizzie Kate Jingles.   I've had them since they came out, but only started them, I think, last year.  I reset the designs to be a block in horizontal mode to be able to frame it in a conventional sized rectangular frame.    Happy Stitching all! :)

So long since I've been here!

Happy Spring everyone!  The gardening bug has come to mind and so planning on a few items on my tiny balcony.  My hands are still acting up, so stitching is down to a minimum but I'm still doing a bit on Gracious Era, Jingles, and a couple others.   It not supposed to be a rush anyway! Lol  But trying for at least a slow crawl of stitching! Lol  Happy stitching all! :)

Couldn't resist......

I couldn't resist stitching the lady in the red coat.  I love it with the muff too.  and even without the backstitching in the rufflle its gorgeous too.  I'm really enjoying this one and I also found that there is lots of the background stitching and building are 1/2 stitches with 3 threads which is giving it lots of texture.   I'm also working on some Christmas ornies but cannot show them until my after Christmas blog!  Happy Stitching all.   Oh, and I'm half done the Lizzie Kate Mystery SAL -Spooked which is good because the part 3 is on its way to me.  :)

Completed a few bibs

I completed a few bibs up to yesterday.  I've been stitching on these little designs for a few months and then sewed them onto purchased bibs.  They were definitely happy stitching thoughts as they are going to the teen pregnancy centre here and also half of them including the 12 sewn toddler bibs are going to Love without Boundaries group.  They help people, mostly babies and children by operating on their cleft palate..  Its an honour to help to give them smiles.  :)  Happy stitching everyone.   Oh, if you'd like to stitch or sew for them as well, please check out their site online at Kate at LWB
