October 2015 WIP Update: Storytime Sampler, A Good Marriage and a New Start!

Well, October is finished and we are swiftly moving towards the end of the year! I am already formulating my 2016 stitching plans. Would love to hear what everyone else has planned too! I am still planning it out at the moment, but I think I will try and clear some of my WIPs and get them completed. Anyway, onto October’s WIPS…see last months’ blog here.

Storytime Sampler

This one is stitched on 32 count Lugana in Dark Fantasy by Colour Cascade Fabrics, using Weeks Dye Works and DMC floss. This months’ frame was Anne of Green Gables. There are now only 2 more frames to go before this one is finished!!

She was really quick to stitch and so cute. The next two months will be interesting, one of them will be Little Women, but the other, I have no idea!

A Good Marriage

This one is also nearing completion and is stitched on 32-count Lugana in Sandstorm by Stitches and Spice. This will be a gift for my younger brother who is getting married soon.



Please forgive the hoop marks in the fabric, I must not have ironed it before taking the photo. This one is stitching up quite nicely. I envision it will be finished by the end of November.

My New Start – Baby Powder – Me to You (Tatty Teddy)

This is a new start because I am impatient and a serial starter. It was also a really good project for when I was feeling less than stellar this month as the 14 count was less fiddly than the 32 count of the other projects. This one was purchased as a kit and is stitched on 14 count white Aida and using Anchor floss. The Anchor is new for me and so far it is really nice to use.

The colours are very soft and muted, except for his signature blue nose and the yellow of the rubber ducky! He is stitching up quite fast and will be done (except for the date and name) by the end of the year (fingers crossed). This one will be a present to my sister on the birth of her baby, my neice or nephew. This particular kit was out of print and I was lucky enough to get one of the last ones from a store in the UK.

November Plans

I always have such grand plans. This month will hopefully not be too busy and I will get a lot done. I will of course do the next frame for Storytime Sampler and finish off A Good Marriage. Once those two things are done, I think I will work on the Tatty Teddy and maybe a pokemon for the blanket.

Happy stitching to you all for November 🙂 See you next time!
