a mini finish

Well it has taken a while but finally got part II of Chatelaine White Nights in St Petersburg finished.. i am not normally a fan of speciality stitches but have loved doing all of these
plus lots of metallics used - loving ma bling!

Headed up to the creative stitches show at Glasgow last weekend as a couple of friends were looking to get started stitching so i joined them as an advisory role, we're going to get together soon to have our own little stitching night - converting the world one stitcher at a time... picked up these two charts as well, both Heritage Crafts. The shows now though are so disappointing when it comes to cross stitch now, only a couple of exhibitors and I was so surprised to actually get these as just charts. It's all just kits and aida - c'mon folks this is not 1985..
well dd is now demanding computer time so i will be off to cook dinner, before settling down for a bit of well earned stitching time and two hours of The Killing - I am so so loving this programme, cannot wait to find out who it was but on the other hand don't want it to finish..
