Time to catch up

Hi again! Well, after my last post saying I would do a bit more stitching on Autumn Blessings, I'm sad to say I didn't get very much done. I started on some more and then Mum rang and said she and Dad would drop by for a visit. So I spent most of that afternoon chatting to them, which I don't mind. Here's my latest pic...

Not much different to the last one is it? I told you I didn't get much done. The current chart in the kit is a bit different to their original piece. The top of the pumpkin on the right has been altered, and I'm not 100% sure about the colour they've used for the wording. They call for dried pink roses, but to me it looks more purple in their picture. It's put me off a bit because I've had a certain look in mind and then when you stitch it, it comes out differently. I'm in two minds whether to change the colour of the writing. I'm not getting any stitching done lately anyway, so I have some time to think about that.

I also picked up my new kitten, Charlotte on Good Friday. She's been here for about two weeks now. She's doing well. Been wanting to play and jump all over my other cat Sophie (much to her disgust). Generally they seem to be getting along, and once Charlotte settles down a bit from her "kitten" stage, they'll become good friends.

Mum wanted me to put in an order for some needlework recently so I did so through They usually have a sale on for general supplies like thread, linen, and charts. To my dislike though, they won't include Shepherd's Bush kits in their sale ;-) but since they're always having some sort of sale on, I can't expect them to be included. So Mum wanted the Victoria Sampler leaflet/accessory pack L for Librarian, the two pewter bellpulls to go with it, Drawn Thread's Toccata #3 done up as a kit, a piece of Autumn Fields 32ct linen, and some perlee creme thread (she love's this in needlework).

At first I wasn't going to get anything myself, but after looking through their site a bit, there were a couple of things that caught my eye. I know I'm so weak. These were designs I had seen before and made a note to get in the future. Both Blackbird Designs with the first being Flea Market Souvenir chart (I'm getting it kitted up), and Maggie's Needlecase chart with the supplies to go with it. Just love getting stitching supplies in the mail!

Well, that's it for now. Thought I'd just check in with the latest.
