lateness

Having not done a lot of sewing in September I failed to get my bee blocks done too but they are now in the post just a little late...

Karen's blocks for Bee A Brit Stingy:


and Amy's block for the Simply Solids bee:



I have also caught up on my Woodland Sampler - I actually thought I'd finished August but I missed a mushroom.


Every month I look forward to these cuties coming into my inbox and I thought September might be my favourite but then I saw October! I really don't want it to end!

Although when it does I already have my next cross stitch project ready to go thanks to winning a giveaway at live.love.sew. I love Keera's pretty pattern and you can download it here. Thank you so much Keera!




I also had these goodies drop through my door. I love stationary and really needed to have some birthday cards handy for the kids birthday parties that mine are invited to because I'm never organised. I got this lovely lot at asking for trouble - quite honestly I'd buy it all if I could, gotta love those cute kawaii characters!




Speaking of characters I've been stuffing this little dog, which was a free gift with Mollie Makes, with all my hst trimmings. It gives it a nice weight and Joan is smitten!

  3. Adorable! I keep my trimmings with that thought in mind but I better start using them before they take over my basement.

  13. I love that doggy! And thanks so much for linking up your shop to the Store front post. After I posted and didn't include international shipping (which is so freaking expensive these days!) I was bummed that you couldn't win! But you're still a winner in my book! Cheers Lucy and happy Stitching!
