Simple Treasures

Don't you just love it when all those random X's of different colours magically appear as something?  I've been stitching on Simple Treasures and it didn't really look like anything, just random splodges of colour, and then  suddenly bam...there it was, the rope, the seashell....yayyy, it's beginning to look like the picture on the package! Here's how it's looking now....



I'm really enjoying working on this piece, but this week is Geisha week, so Simple Treasures has to sit there collecting dust for a week before I can pick it up again. :(

And remember the scarves I was knitting? Well, I've finished another one! It's such a great feeling to be able to cross things off your Christmas to-do list, at least it would be, if I had a list!
*Note to self - make a Christmas To-do list and cross off  'make scarves'! *

Here are the three finished ones together...



Three down, one to go!

And I finally managed to get my Will Trade Coffee design finished into a gift!  I was going to make a wall hanging out of the stitching, but I decided that a frame would be better....and quicker! Here's the design framed...


I'll have a separate post about the design made as a gift. This one worked so well that I'm going to do a Tea one for some of my tea loving friends...watch this space!

Until next time...happy stitching!

Great job on Simple Treasures! And those scarves look great! Definitely make that list to cross them off, haha! And Will Trade Coffee looks great in that frame!

Nothing more satisfying than crossing something off a list - I'd be lost without mine :0)

The scarves are absolutly beautiful. I love the colors! You should make a list so you can cross them off.
