Ready set..stitch!

I made my way to spotlight this morning to be pleasantly surprised by all the DMC thread colours I needed to start my new project, were in stock. I accidently doubled up on a few colours because I forgot to check first if I had them first but that's ok, a double up doesn't hurt and won't go to waste. So of course I couldn't wait to get started, so when my little girl went down for her nap, out came the stitching. This is a bit of a floss toss with a small start too. The colours have an Autumn feel to them I think. Photo isn't great quality because it was taken outside and I couldn't see properly with the 30 degree sun glaring down at me!!


I never ever make changes to my patterns except I've decided to do a change with this one. The bride has brown hair in the pattern and because I have blonde hair I have decided to swap colour 434 (brown) with 768 (blonde). :-)
It feels so good to start a new pattern again, I've not had that feeling for a long time as it's been awhile since I started a new pattern. I am looking forward to seeing how this one comes together.

I just want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. I look forward to sharing my stitching blog with you next year (hopefully without the absence). And seeing all your beautiful work too.

Happy stitching xx
