Long time no see

It's been a while since I've posted here.  Thanks to everyone who sent messages asking if I was OK. I had a busy few weeks at work and some health issues to deal with but don't worry I've done plenty of stitching so I have some things to share with you.

I am keeping up to date with the Lizzie*Kate monthly designs that were very kindly gifted to me by Julie.

I'm also keeping up to date with the monthly Lili of the Valley fairy series...

May fairy by Lili of the Valley
Stitched on 16 count Cloud Blue aida

I'm very proud of the fact that I have kept up with the Under the Sea SAL by Lakeside Needlecrafts, designed by Durene Jones.  Hot off my needle this morning is the whole thing including July's mermaid.

This is such a fun stitch but always takes me longer than I think it will to stitch each part!

I will be back soon with more including a couple of finishes, another SAL I am working on, an exchange and a new start.

Until next time

Justine

    The 'tin' and 'clay' aida - are those the names of shades ? I couldn't really make out that clay aida looks like clay so was curious to know.
