Its a Lizzie*kate design from Christmas 2009 called I'll get my elves on that. I love Lizzie*kate; they are always so much fun. This design uses a thread called wisper which is used 1 ply and had fluffy fibres all along it to give a fluffy and slightly 3d appearance.
I love the finished effect of wisper but threading the needle is a nightmare. I have never had a problem threading the needle before but I think I'm going to have to go out and buy a needle threader to cope with this. (and don't worry Tel, we are talking about a purchase of about 50p!!!)
There is something about september with the children going back to school and so on that makes me feel I can face a bit of Christmas stitching. The season is really changing here with leaves on the pavements and the evenings smell of smoke from all the fires.
I'm also working on 4 little gifts for Tel to take back to work for the wives of his mates. I have done the stitching for one needlebook so far but its not finished yet. If anyone knows of any small 'UK' charts I'd love to know. I'd like to stitch little UK image gifts with things like the tower of london etc.
I'm feeling a bit down at the moment. I'm very grateful for my sewing and being able to lose myself in what I'm doing. And of course I am always boosted by hearing from you so please leave a comment.
