Theme-a-licious October Update
Theme-a-licious is hosted by Heather of It's Geek to Me
Each month Heather thinks up a theme for us to stitch to, or in my case, a theme to somehow shoe-horn my existing stitching into, no matter how tenuous the link!
The only thing I have which fits the theme so far is my Mirabilia, Titania, Queen of the Fairies. Unfortunately I have not yet reached the bling stage on her! Just alot of pink of various shades. So here is a photo of where the bling will be when I get there:
It's time to don your tiaras and bring the bling! Stitch on projects with sparkly fibers, beads or charms.

Here is the full piece so far:
I have been making excellent progress on Drac-in-the-Box. I have finished the six sides of the box and made a tiny start on the lid piece. Here are the sides:
It's orientated like that on purpose because I stitched them whichever way up was easier to hold the fabric.
Have you seen this new design yet? It's from Northern Expressions Needlework and is called Twisted Band Sampler:
A while back I won the back catalogue from Nicole and they are absolutely gorgeous designs. The instructions are really good too. Nicole has a nice friendly style of writing so it feels like a friend explaining how to do the stitches rather than a textbook.
Finally, there are still places available for the Hallowe'en Blog Hop on the 31st October. Simply click on Mr. Boo on the right hand side bar for more details.
