Day 1 – 8 Tiny Valentine SAL

Phoenix Update

Good grief the backstitch is hard work but worth it. Not for the faint hearted. Good job the chart comes with coloured symbols as well as black and white. I’d have lost my way in the black and white.

Backstitch is in several different colours. Probably 8.

Getting there on the top half. I’m hoping the bottom will be better.


Day 1-6 Tiny Valentines SAL

Progress so far.

Craft Trolley Arrived

I just love this craft trolley. From Aldi, while stocks last. I ordered mine on Thursday online with free delivery and it arrived yesterday.

They were on sale in stores from 4th February 2018. There’s also a table magnifier available to.


Oppps a start and a finish in one day

The designer Fiona Barker, started her own Facebook Page yesterday and gave away a Freebie chart, using some of the new DMC colours.

With me not having any work stitching and having the tin of lovely colours, I just had to do it.

I believe there is another design that accompanies it soon. Yay.

I thought the new colours seemed thinner but shinier.
