Lizzie Kate July Flip-It Stamp - finished!

Hello everybody!

Long time no blog!

I haven't forgotten about you all but for once life has been really hectic and got in the way of blogging/reading/commenting. I can't believe how the last three weeks have just flown by in a blink. On top of that our main computer has died and it is only now that my daughter has allowed me to use her super-duper laptop to access blogger. So my catching-up plan for July has not yet happened. Still, schools finish tomorrow for 6 weeks so I should have LOADS of time for catching up then - yeah right!

But on to stitching.

I picked up the latest LK stamp on 1st July and it seemed to take forever to stitch, being able to put in just 15 minutes most days until a final push towards the end. But here it is before it joined its siblings in my Box of Shame:

July Flip-It Stamp by Lizzie Kate
Stitch Count 47 x 47
Stitched on 16ct Rustic Aida 2 over 2
Started - 1st July 2015
Finished - 11th July
Total Stitching Time - 10 hours 25 minutes

This stamp was definitely the easiest to stitch so far but still very enjoyable.

I've also just finished another of my Challenge pieces but will post about that in a couple of days.

Bye for now,
Rachel x

Cute finish, Rachel! I can just imagine biting into the juice!!! Box of shame- that sounds so...shameful!! LOL Just my opinion- I think you should be proud of all your hard work and everything you've done!! And rename that box lol

Congrats on the cute finish Rachel. I really love that set of charts. I so wish she would go back to those kinds of designs.

Congrats on the beautiful finish, Rachel!!:) Sometimes, in fact most of the times, life is busy for us crafters because we try to squeeze everything in little time. Hope your PC gets fixed soon.
