More unpicking!

So the hope that the frogs had moved on proved to be false and I ended up unpicking....again! Still, it was worth the hassle as I'm now much happier with the colours and those cute (but faceless) kitties and mugs look so much better.


Before...


...after, including kitty number four...



I'm looking forward to the kitties faces appearing with the back stitching, but I'm not looking forward to actually doing the back stitching...if that makes sense! :)

My to-do list just got a bit bigger after I unexpectedly received a copy of Your Handmade Home magazine. One of my designs was featured in the magazine and the editor very kindly sent me a copy! Lots of lovely projects in the mag......



...... including my cushion design.....


The chart was in the bottom left corner of the page, but has been blanked out so that I can post the pic here for you to see!

Also this week the postie delivered the World Of Cross Stitching mag which had my designs for a set of Father's Day cards.....





The model stitcher did a great job on these and I'm really pleased with how they turned out.....too bad I can't stitch quickly enough to make one for my dad and  my father-in-law, they'll just have to get store bought cards instead!

Until next time...happy stitching!

Hi rhona,

I was wondering if you already got feedback from Dinemsions regarding your kit with the fault in the fabric? Did they come back to you with a solution and a discount or something? Just wondering what a big company like Dimensions will do....

best regards,
