Here is the first of my holiday projects - I only ever take quickish things to stitch and it was no exception this time whilst we were away, and as I have been busy doing some finishing this week I thought I would do the finishing for this so its the first one to show.
Its by Bent Creek and its called Buzz - I have been itching to stitch this one since I got it ages ago, I have changed the colours as always to match the box I had and I used GAST Hyacith, and WDW Purple haze, plus for the flower centres I used a scrap of DMC from my scrap box it was the closest I could find to the pink on the box. Its stitched on 32ct vintage linen.
We have a new blogger and stitcher in our midst too, I found Michele by chance when she had visited my blog - Hello Michele - Michele is stitching away and has decided to blog too as she wants to help and inspire other brand new stitchers as well, as she has been loving the stitching she has found on other blogs and wants to learn to do it for herslef, so please if you've a minute pop over to her blog and give her a blogging welcome.
Hope all the UKers are having great Bank Holiday weekend and that your weather is significantly better than ours wherever you may be, I'll leave you with a photo of me and my MIL taken yesterday T-time at a golf society BBQ we were at - and yes it was raining and Yes we stayed outside all the time until we went home at 11pm.
