Les Dentelles - Penultimate Part!

Not much stitching has been going on here, but quite a bit of reading and research has been taking place........

My sister also very kindly gave me an exemption on thread purchases so that I could buy the AVAS I needed for my Scarlet Letter Sampler, A Flamestitch, that I plan to start for my Autumn/Winter project this year.  After I heard the terrible news about the AVAS factory fire, I wanted to make sure I had the threads I needed sooner rather than later.  I now have all the threads I need for my projects this year........
I have finished my Operation Threadporn freebie project for February, I just need to find some buttons for the finished finish and get it sewn up over the weekend, but here is a sneak peak:
And finally.........I've finished Part 8 of Les Dentelles, all ready for the release of the final part on Monday:
I'm looking forward to starting Plum Pudding with Nic on Sunday :).

Happy Stitching!


  1. Books! Flamestitch looks pretty. I've never used AVAS, so you'll have to let us know how it is.

  2. Flamestitch is gorgeous, looking forward to seeing it grow. Great job on the freebie and the blackwork.

  3. I love the little spiral rose on your freebie and the colours on it are amazing. Can't wait until tomorrow - I may have to stay up past midnight just to put the first stitches in :-)

  4. What a sweet sisterly thing to do. Luckily all my SL projects came kitted up so I don't need to buy the silks.
    Looking forward to seeing the competed freebie, the sneak peek is lovely already.

  5. Okay, teach me how to do that rose please. Is that one variegated thread you used for it? And those beads! So beautiful.


Thank you for stopping by, I love hearing from my fellow stitchers so please feel free to leave a comment and I'll get back to you (provided you are not a no-reply blogger!).
