Hello everyone, I've been happy dancing as I have finished my HAED Storykeep Forest Walk!
I'm really pleased with it but am not sure what to do with it! It seems too big and too nice to make into a bookmark so I'm thinking of framing it. It's been great practice for when I start Treasure Hunt Bookshelf. I stitched this on 25 count magic guide evenweave 2 over 1 using the recommended DMC threads. With all the confetti it was very difficult to get the needle through the fabric. I think I might try a small corner of Treasure Hunt Bookshelf 1 over 1 on an offcut of fabric to see what the coverage is like.
In other news my friend and I (known as the Thelma and Louise of the craft world in some quarters!) made our annual pilgrimage to the NEC craft show yesterday. I bought lots of card making bits including a die cutting machine. I'm not sure how I've managed without one before, it's brilliant! I decided that I wasn't going to buy any cross stiching supplies as I have plenty to be going on with but The Nutmeg Company had a stand with all their adorbale 3D houses and cards and I couldn't resist!
I have bought a Panto House (Goldilocks), a Christmas tree, a pack of 3 Christmas cards and a Formula One card - this will be for my petrol head husband.
Now I have a dilemma, I wanted to concetrate on Bamboo Fan for the next few months in the hopes of finishing it but I really want that house on my Christmas tree next month!
