Now the DUCJC is over I have been enjoying concentrating on just one or two pieces. This past week I have been stitching On The Beach by Madame Chantilly. Not literally "on" the beach as it is far too cold for that. But a design entitled On The Beach. My cousin (who is actually my second cousin and my godmother's daugher so my godsister (possibly?)) had a baby last year and decorated the nursery with a nautical theme. I thought this design would be perfect for them.
The fabric is by Sparklies and is called Kynance after Kynance Cove in Cornwell. It is dyed to order so you can specify landscape or portrait and also where the division between blue and yellow is placed.
The other main project this week is Prairie Moon's Thine is the Trick and the Treat:
This seems like a good time to show a few things I have not blogged about before. First up are a couple of gifts which couldn't be shown until the recipient had them.
The lovely Ewa got married to Thomas last year. Formerly known as HHB (Handsome, Helpful Boyfriend) he was promoted to HHF (Handsome, Helpful Fiance) and is now HHH or H3 ((Handsome, Helpful Husband). I bought a lovely little teabag holder when we were on holiday last year because I knew I had the cross stitch chart for the same design.
