Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

3rd happy dance for today!

Yes, that's right, yet another project has hit the finishing pile today - the latest one is Bilberry by Shepherd's Bush ... this has been a UFO for a while, as I couldn't work out how to do the hemstitching bands. After completing my Love needleroll at the start of this year, and using a different instruction book I have, I decided it would be a quick project to finish off, seeing as I've now tried and succeeded in hemstitching, and I wasn't in the mood to tackle my Marine Elegance today as my concentration wasn't quite 'up to it'. I can thank KarenV partly for this - after seeing her latest Shepherd's Bush finishes, it reminded me I had this in my UFO pile, and it wasn't too far off finishing, so I thought it was time it saw daylight again. I put a sheet of coloured paper behind the fabric while I was scanning it, so the fabric looks off-white, but it showed up the hemstitching etc better that way.

Phew, three finishes in 24 hours ... don't expect to see any more for a while! LOL.

WOW! Congratulations for your finishes. All the pic looks great, and i especially love the shepherd bush design. Honestly, haven't done hemstitching yet. It seems so difficult...

Darn girl! Look how busy you've been. Congratulations on all 3 finishes. Can you do some stitching for me, too, while you're at it? LOL. Are you joining in the stitch-a-thon this weekend on Friends Gather?

How funny... I was just finishing up A Mother's Love Needleroll from Shepherd's Bush and the hemstitching also gave me a bit of trouble at first, but then I finally got the hang of it!

Anyway, I love your finish! So pretty!

Wonderful finish -- your Shep Bush is lovely. I saw the long sampler Karen is creating -- it is too kewl!!

Are you going to add more rows, too? This looks lovely as is.
