Yes I have been quietly stitching and here is a little proof. I thought while I was in the teeny tiny mode I had better stitch up some pieces ready for our Christmas exchanges. The little biscornu is stitched on 28count lugana with sparkly bits added to the fabric, the tiny strawberries are stitched on 35count linen with one strand of overdyed Threadworx cotton and the Green and blue piece is a Keslyns design Turquoise Gold stitched on 28count coloured lugana with overdyed cotton one over one. The little pincushion hiding behind the tiny strawberries is my latest release chart called Circles which comes with the instructions for a scissor keeper as well as the pincushion.

Today was the final trip to the travel agent for details. We have had to book on a coach-tour to be able to fit in everything we wanted to see at a reasonable price that fitted our budget. So Philadelphia here we come. Woo Hoo. My to-do list is getting smaller so there may be some catch up canvas stitching coming up very soon.
Here are some lovely threads that came in the mail recently, my threads of the month club from Stitchers Workshop and a skein of Painters Thread from Dee in the UK.
Lots of goodies to play with for a confirmed Threadaholic.
Happy stitching, bye for now, Carol
