Yesterday before I went to my stitching group the delivery man came to the door with my parcel from (I won't say yet as I have been overcharged for something and I would like them to fix up the problem first).
I have always wanted a Liberty Hill product and at long last have got one. Hopefully it will be the first of many to come.
This is the pride and joy of my stash. A Stitcher's Companion by Liberty Hill
And here is the rest of the stash that arrived. Prairie House Sampler and Pink Hare Sampler by Ewe & Eye & Friends. Easter Parade by Blackbird Designs. I Love the Birds by Shakespeare's Peddler, I also bought the fabric and threads for this pattern. Skeleton Shadow Box and Witch Shadow box by Prairie Moon. Last but not least I ordered a grab bag of threads. 

Now all I have to find are the shadow boxes here in Australia!!!

Shepherds Bush

Here are the first three Shepherds Bush Kits I have that are framed. Beware there are quite a few more. I quite like the SB kits for when I am feeling a little lazy and just want to pick something up to stitch. I don't have to work out the material or threads I am going to use they are all perfect combinations.

My finished Lizzie Kate's

Over the next couple of posts I will put up some of the previous stitchings that I done. I will try and keep them to either designers or subjects. Through these photo's hopefully you will get to know the sort of designs I like. Starting of with Lizzy Kate.

Now that I am getting the hang of adding photo's I hope to add them before they are framed as I feel that gives a much better picture. ABCx

DMC kit

I am trying to add some photo's to the blog. Fingers crossed that this works.
This is a kit that I bought some time ago and finished in 2006. This is the first ever kit I have bought from DMC. I am a leaflet sort of girl. I fell in love with the monochrome though and just had to do it. I am disappointed that some of the add on blocks are not quite square but that was just me not taking enough time to line it up properly.
