Although I have not done much these past few weeks I have managed to get a few finishes done and a new project started. I am planning to make as many Christmas gifts as possible this year so have started in plenty of time, (I hope!).
This project was started in early June so it has taken a long time but I have really enjoyed it. It is another Jenny of Elefantz design of course from her Stitchery Club and I am going to make this into a folder to store part completed embroidery.
I loved doing all of the different stitches, some I had never used before like blanket stitch and I think they have all come out quite neatly for a first attempt.
The second one was a lot quicker and you can find the details here in my blog post if you wish to buy the design.
I started this towards the end of last month and was originally going to put an initial in the middle but you know how much I love hexis and just thought the colours of this Liberty fabric were so suited to the embroidery. This will become another pouch.
Apologies for the fact that the photos look very blue! We have very little light today though we have had some beautiful autumn days with sun and blue skies. I am starting a second one of these tonight and will maybe put an initial in that one.All of the threads are either Silk Mill for the solids or Caron Waterlillies from Sew and So for the variegated threads.
I have another update for you at the weekend so until then enjoy yourselves, take care and thanks for visiting.

Very neatly done!
I’ve been having trouble with the colour in my photos, as well, recently.
Lovely work! You’ve done a great job on those stitches, I definitely wouldn’t guess it was your first attempt at stitching them!
