A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
It's TUSAL time again! For those of you new to blogging, the TUSAL is a project run by Daffycat, click on the button on the right hand bar for more details.
Here is my ORTS jar posing with the current stitching project:
The design is Glendon Place's Friendship Compass, a FB exclusive freebie. You can download the chart and choose your own colours. I have gone for purples in the blue spectrum just to make it really difficult to photograph!
This is a scan of the design which is much more true to colour. The pinkier purple on the right is 3042.
stitched on 32 count white evenweave.
And a Happy Dance too! This next design was started in August for the Black Cats theme on the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL blog and then continued in September for Kaye's Friday Frolics. This is Just Nan's Ghoulies and Ghosties, stitched using the recommended DMC on 28 count tan evenweave:
I do love Nan's Hallowe'en designs, they use the same basic colours so they all look good together and feature her cute spiders and ghosts.
And speaking of ghosts, I am now taking sign-ups for my Hallowe'en Trick and Treat Blog Hop. Everyone enjoys this hop and we need some more people to make a nice long one or the mystery word will be CAT. (Just so Christine can guess BAT or CAW depending on who has posted). So why not drop me an email and sign up. There's a list of spooky freebies on my freebie page and even if you don't finish by the 31st you will have a WIP to show!
Finally, most of you know the lovely Jacquie and her equally lovely daughter Hannah (and her just as lovely hubby Jon but he's not relevant to this bit). Han has designed some cushions to enter into a competition. You have share your favourite on FB or Twitter and she gets votes! Click here to read all about it.
