This week's stitching

Just a quick picture update of what I've been stitching:


That's the Gift of Stitching design My Lovely Sewing Tools which I'm SAL with Kathy, Cucki and Claire (see side bar for blog links, under the GOS picture).  This is a delight to stitch so I ought to credit the designer, she's called Marie Suarez.  She has a lovely blog but it's in French and there doesn't seem to be a translate button so I have to copy and paste into Google Translate all the time!  She has a very distinctive style, very delicate and pretty.

This is completely different, it's a San Man Original Spooky SAL freebie.  They have released a part every Sunday and we're just waiting on the final part this weekend. 


The board is very friendly and I seem to have picked up a few new followers from there and from the Brooke's Books Board too.  Hello new followers!  As usual I try to return the following but some people's following profile doesn't show their blog.  So if you're a new follower, please comment so I can find you and stalk you back!  I also have 3 anonymous followers who don't show up at all except in the number total.  I know they're there because I keep a list of my follower's blogs so I can find everyone if Google has another hissy fit like in May!

I've also finished my share of the RR but the photos are in the camera which isn't by the computer so I'll save them for another day.  We're taking names for the next Band Sampler RR (to start next Spring) and also for a Joan Elliott RR which will start in the New Year.  Hopefully.  http://twbbroundrobins.yuku.com/directory  That's where to find all the info on RRs.

I really love your sewing tools piece. I love the spools of thread, they are so cute and perfect! I will have to go check out Marie's blog. :)

That Halloween freebie is so cute. I haven't been able to get on the SanMan board in years, so I have missed out on all these wonderful freebies. Could you post a link to the board sometime? I just want to make sure I am going to the right place...:)

Hugs!

Your My Lovely Sewing Tools is gorgous and coming right along, and your Spooky SAL is very cute.
I have the same problem with 4 of my followers. I don't know who they are so I can't stalk them either.
Happy Stitching

Ooooo I'm loving that Sewing Tools design. I love the colors and how everything is placed about. That is very pretty. I can't wait to see this finished.

I'm giving some serious thought to that Joan Elliot RR. :) I'll have to decide if its in the stitching stars for me or not. I wish there were more hours in the week.
