My Favourite Finish So Far


I would like to use this small bit of the web to record my stitching and my favourite photos.

I love to sttich sweet colourful designs

I stitched this design a few years ago.  It was from Cross Stitch Collection magazine and designed by Gail Bussi.

I stitched it on 28ct evenweave and used DMC stranded cottons and DMC Colour Variations.

I love the verse and the tiny quilt on the washing line.

The sampler is embellished with heart shaped buttons and tiny round buttons.

I will finish with a photo of the beautiful sunset we had last night.  The view from our back garden looked like this

Until next time....


  1. OMG! Looks like a brand new blog! What a great start. Love the sampler. Adding the buttons makes it even more special. And those sky pictures are awesome. I thought I was the only one that took pics of clouds. They always seem like little miracles to me.

    I've rss'd your feed. Can't wait to see what else you are up to. Be sure to add Google Friends. With work like this, you will have lots of virtual friends quickly:-}

  2. Thank you for the kind words on my blog. Your photos of the sunset are terrific. I also want to tell you that the stitched piece is fantastic! I look forward to seeing what else you stitch! Nice to find another new stitch blog to be inspired by!

  3. Welcome to the Totally Useless SAL!

    Your photos are lovely!

  4. Hello! I am the designer of this piece - Gail Bussi - and I just wanted to say I think it looks lovely! You have stitched it beautifully. Wish my photos on my blog looked as good as yours!
    Happy Stitching. Gail (
