Mini Magical Mystery SAL 2 - Part 7

Welcome back for day seven of the second round of mystery stitching! Hopefully yesterday's part wasn't too big for you - and hopefully you noticed that the arm of the new "tail" was a stitch less than the first one (four stitches instead of five). Today's stitching will get you *almost* to the edge of the embroidery, but not quite.

Mini Magical Mystery SAL 2 - Part 6

Welcome back for day six of the second round of mystery stitching! I'm not sure how it happened (probably kids distracting me) but I didn't correctly save the pattern while making it so today's pattern is actually a two in one pattern - a few more stitches than planned but hopefully not too much for you to keep up - sorry about that.

Ornament of the Month 2020 - April

Welcome to the fourth Ornament of the Month for 2020! I had a lot of fun with this month's pattern! If you don't want to use beads you could just do a square of red stitches instead in the spots that are empty as of course some beads are on red squares so you don't need to do them again.

Mini Magical Mystery SAL 2 - Part 5

Welcome back for day five of the second round of mystery stitching! The spiral shape was pretty popular yesterday - hopefully you will like what gets added today! I have seen some wonderful colours show up - even some I would normally dislike but look fantastic on the fabric chosen.

Mini Magical Mystery SAL 2 - Part 4

Welcome back for day four of the second round of mystery stitching! The plot thickens as you get to add more to your mystery - but is it where you were expecting to add stitches today or somewhere else completely?

Seasons SAL - Spring

Welcome to the Spring edition of the Seasons SAL! Like last time I I still haven't got a time machine (If only!) and as it's been a super busy month I just wasn't able to finish the stitching for this month's pattern. I did get the Winter one stitched in January though so I'll show it first.

Temperature SAL - April

Welcome to the fourth Temperature SAL post! March has been and gone with many of us now having to stay at home in our houses due to the pandemic it's getting more difficult to actually feel the temperatures we are recording. Remember that if you have a stay at home order you can still go into your garden/on your balcony/sit at an open window to enjoy the sun when it's out and get a bit of fresh air. I have even had a few days when it was warm enough in the sun (though the air temperature wasn't all that warm) that I could sit and read in my garden for a while!

Mini Magical Mystery SAL 2 - Part 3

Welcome back for day three of the second round of mystery stitching! I noticed that a lot of people saw goldfish in the pattern yesterday - I wonder if all of you still see it after today? I'm still seeing fantastic finishes of the first Mini Magical Mystery SAL showing up in the groups - good going those of you who were able to decide what to make - it will help those who are still on the fence decide too!

The Spring Magical Mystery SAL 2020 - Pre-stitch Part 4

Welcome to the last pre-stitch of the Spring Mystery SAL! This post is a little late because I got side tracked going down the path of things that will help with baking sour dough bread. As many of you have noticed things are getting a bit more difficult to get and I made two sour dough starters - one with spelt flour, one with plain flour - that are getting close to their first week of life. I enjoy baking my own bread so perhaps I'll be baking bread more often now.  Next time I post for this mystery things will be starting for the main mystery! I hope you are excited for this is I am! Since I designed this back in January I have managed to forget what it looks like so I'm as much in the dark as you are (though I could cheat and peek I'm not going to!).

Mini Magical Mystery SAL 2 - Part 2

Welcome back for day two of the second round of mystery stitching! I hope you didn't have too much trouble with the counting yesterday! I am pretty sure that is the only time you will have to count a lot to get the placement right.
