As you can tell by the title of this post, I have been a bit naughty and started stitching on a new design. The saving grace is that I didn't have to buy the design....Tea and Cakes is a free stitch along designed by the wonderful Durene Jones and provided by Lakeside Needlecraft......
...the only thing I had to buy for the this SAL was some fabric, because although I have, cough, cough....one or two (ha ha) pieces of fabric in my stash, I didn't have any 14 count white aida...go figure!
The border was released first and then the cake motif the following week. Since I was already a week behind, I decided to stitch the border and cake together. I'll just continue each border part as and when the cake motifs are released.
Some back stitching to do and then the first motif will be completed. For any of you that would like to join in with this free stitch along, just check out Lakeside Needlework's Facebook page. They also have several other SAL's which are very tempting! Don't say I didn't warn you.....I don't want to be classed as an enabler :)
I also managed to finish the adorable Fizzy Moon card design from the World of Cross Stitching magazine....
Since all my stock of stitched cards was used, it's great to have a card already finished for when I need one. Hopefully I can start building up my stock of cards again. The first part of the Tea and Cakes SAL would also make a nice little motif to stitch for a card....guess I might be stitching this design again!
Until next time....happy stitching!
