Wonderful Wednesday – seven

Good afternoon, another lovely one here in Sunny Derbyshire.  This week I have been out and about quite a bit with the weather being so nice.  So there has not been a lot of crafting done.

On Sunday it was time for a change on the stitching front, so I put away my SAL project and out came those Dolls again.  Despite not having much time for stitching I feel this has gone well so far,Kokoshi dolls 2018.6.6

and I will stick with this until next Sunday.  When I will take another picture to share the rest of my progress with you, next Wednesday.

On the card front – do you remember the little boy with the map from last week.  There is now a little girl to match.  I thought these would be ideal for teens etc who were setting off for university or maybe on a gap year.  In the pics it looks like one card is so much smaller that the other but its just the shape.  The boy is a 6×6 and the girl is a 5.7

there were a few more ,  a fun wedding card.


7aThis is a mixed up  card.  I love the Bestie digi stamps by the talented Sherri Baldy.  The best this about digi stamps is unlike a normal stamp you are not limited to size, so I can make nice big images.  However sometimes when cutting these particular ones, the neck is so narrow that the head falls off.  I had put a few of these into a box at one point and they was unsure which head belonged to which doll.  I decided it didn’t matter they were all cute, and this one I know has the wrong head but somewhere along the line you will see someone dressed very funky with a Geisha’s neat and tidy hair and make up.  lol

Lastly there are three more for the Christmas card box,  these first two were made using Thomas Kinkade images from a fabulous 3cd set I bought from Joanna Sheen a good few years back.

The last one is from a CD by La Pashe called the “Best of 2012”.  This weeks theme at the Christmas card group was Christmas Puds and/or Mince Pies, so how could I resist this.42

I will leave this little chap as my farewell for today and see you next time I hope.  Thank you for visiting and don’t forget to leave a comment if you have time,  I always love reading what you have to say.




About stitchingranny

I am one of those people who need to have busy hands so whether its stitching or papercrafting, I am always doing something. I also love being in the garden, though hubby does most of the work there these days.

    You have been busy Helen! I do love Precious Moments, I cross stitched them for host families gifts when I was an enchanted student. Your Japanese dolls are really filling in nicely!

    • Thanks so much Kathy. I too have stitched my fair share of PMs, they are such cute images. Oscar has three on his bedroom wall at our house, and his birth sampler (stitched by my Daughter, still hangs in his parents room at there house.
      What is an “enchanted student”, not something I think we have here in the UK.

  3. Thanks so much Catherine. I admired the chart when I saw it on Claire93’s site and asked where it came from. As it was from a magazine she still had, she kindly sent it to me and I am really enjoying stitching it, though there are lots of colour changes as you can see. xx
