September Stitching Tag and Small Haul

Sorry for the late posting! This was a TAG started on Youtube and here is my blog version! All you other stitcy bloggers out there, feel free to jump in on the tags too!

September Stitching Tag


  1. Do you have a favourite DMC colour, and if so, what is it?
    • It is hard to pick a favourite, but I am currently stitching with 666 Christmas red and it is just gorgeous. I also like the purples in the DMC range.
  2. Do you stitch for Christmas? If so, have you started yet?
    • No, I am not a Christmas stitcher. I couldn’t imagine having pieces that I only see at certain times of the year!
  3. Are you a reader? If so, what’s currently on your night stand or reading list?
    • Yes, I have been a reader since I could say the word ‘book’. My recreational reading has taken a backseat lately due to my university studies. However, the most recent book I finished was called “The Sick Child in Early Modern England, 1580-1720”, a non-fiction academic work unrelated to my own studies. I am like many others and listen to audio books whilst I am reading and generally go with Harry Potter read by Stephen Fry. The genre that I read the most is Crime/Legal fiction. One of my favourites is ‘The Partner’ by John Grisham and ‘The ABC Murders’ by Agatha Christie

Small Haul

Had a small haul at a local needlework store and bought 2 lots of evenweave fabric, one 25 count and one 28 count piece. I also grabbed some new needles and 2 variegated threads by Country Cottage Threads.


Not sure what I want to do with these threads but they were so pretty I had to add them to my stash.
