The Dairy

Hello Peeps!
Long time no see.

Slightly late putting together & publishing this post,
so some of you will probably feels like a bit of déjà vu!!


Following our first meet up last year, JustineRachel & I
decided to organize our own cross stitch retreat!
After a long & much anticipated wait (yes, we were actually counting down the days),
the time had finally arrived to see each other again. 
We spent the entire of last weekend at The Dairy.  Our cottage was simply Perfect!

Goody bags were exchanged... all with a Halloween theme.
I have been gifted with the most beautiful pieces.


A sweet little pinkeep made by Justine
- Did you notice, it's a FRENCH witch, just like me! HAHA

 There was also plenty of other little treasures:
Chart, choccies, candle, needles, needle box,

 Fabulous fabric & threads


My very own ornament made by Rachel.
She actually surprised us all & finished her Halloween stitching into a beautiful ornament.
Check out those …

Hello Peeps!!

I believe my partner has now received my little package, so it is about time I show you my latest finish.


I sent my Halloween creation to Joanne
Now, I know this lady is particularly fond of Halloween stitching,
I thought she deserved something special and a little different.


I have opted for Halloween Purse Faby Reilly Designs
Stitched on Permin 16ct aida fabric, sage colour. Used all preconized DMC colours, including light effects/glow in the dark & beads
I've added a matching piece of cotton fabric for the inner and assembled my work using the biscornu method

There was much more work than anticipated on this model I have worked on it on & off since July

I sadly forgot to take a picture of the top & bottom... there are stitched paw prints too!
All the hard work was worth it!
I am really pleased with my finished piece. I am sure Jo will treasure it.

Included in the purse were a few goodies (chart, threads, rubber pumpkin, Lego Monsters…
