Very happy....

Hello again lovely friends!!

I know, get me!! Another post!! Ha ha 

Thought I would make use of my JUNE stitched design seeing as its June!! I stitched this recently, it is a Heart in Hand design from the Joyful Journal series of months.

Bet your all wondering why I am so happy?! 

Because I have finished past itching Octopus's Garden!! I absolutely love how it turned out.  The colours are so so bright and it's lovely...yes I love it.

A quick reminder, I stitched this on grey 36 count raw linen and used the listed DMC threads.... Here is my journey...

I think the colour difference is quite visible... I think the chart cover must of been stitched with the Gentle Arts threads listed, I had the DMC threads listed and think they came out so much brighter.

Oooh what to stitch next?? Well it's almost July so I best get stitching with that if I am to have a header!! Ha ha 

Ooooh yes.... Thank you all so much for your kind words of support and concern over my health.  It's true I am rather fed up, but have decided to try not to let it get me down.  Please do not worry about me being bed bound again and getting more blood clots....see the last time I was in hospital they gave me the Fragmin anti clotting injections to take home.  So now I inject myself every evening, to stop clots forming.  I am so pleased about this as I was worried too!! 

Ok.... Going now, to do some more stitching!! Hope your all busy stitching!!

Big smiles to you all :)

  4. Congrats on the great finishes. I love both of those designs.


  5. Octopus looks great and it does look brighter than the chart picture. Can't wait too see what you'll do next. Hope your day is wonderful today!

  6. Jacquie, June is sweet!
    I hear the hum of bees :-)

  8. Beautiful and happy! Love it! I am now singing. ;)

  9. Love the sweet June stitch!!!
    I also love the Octopus Garden!! The colors are great!
    Hope today is good!

  10. Octopus Garden looks lovely in DMC! I sometimes prefer to stitch with DMC as I think it gives a cleaner look than using overdyeds. Yours looks great!

  11. Yay you finished! :D It's such a whimsical design. I think DMC looks brighter too though I do not have a lot of experience with overdyes. Maybe because there's a bit of a shine to the color!

  12. Beautiful stitching!!! You have done a great job.
