Peter Polar Bear and new items in my Etsy shop


Hi everyone, Peter Polar Bear is finished, yay!!!

In my last post here  I talked about the lovely free patterns that are available via Brookes Books Website, I am stitching all the free advent calendar patterns and Peter Polar Bear is the second one.


I decided to stitch it three threads over two, I did that with the next few patterns and then decided that two over two was my preference, I think in the hand dyed fabric it was a bit tight compared to three threads over two on Aida fabric, I seemed to be really forcing the needle through and my stitches looked a bit messy, so back to two threads over two for the remaining patterns!



My scissors got lost in the process, every time I use my tiny scissors they always end up slipping down the back of the sofa, but this time I really lost them, I searched high and low on my electric recliner to no avail! I had to take a new pair from my Etsy stash and must admit they are like a knife through butter and I love them,  I don't know why I have not used them for myself before! 

New Patterns available in my Etsy store

This weekend I have been restocking my Etsy store with patterns from The Drawn Thread, Country Cottage Needleworks, Little House Needleworks and one pattern from Hands on Design,   I love them all and wish I had the time to stitch everyone of them. I will be putting the fabric and remaining patterns in my shop today.

The Police Station pattern is for me to stitch for a gift for someone, it comes with perforated paper but I will be stitching this on fabric , I also love the Tea Room pattern but may put this in my Etsy shop, I love it so much though and may find it hard to part with! 



Thankyou to everyone who left a comment on my free mini cat pattern for Valentines Day, they were all appreciated. 

Until next time, happy stitching!

Lynn: He is adorable, I love that there is a series to have to stitch.
The Police Station is such a sweet design, I like the Mill Hill kits.
I will have to pop on over and see if I can find a design I need to stitch.
