New Birthday Card
Progress so far on Noah's Ark
Here is my progress so far, i would have done it block by block but i dont have all the threads so i had to do bits i had the threads for lol.
Im quite pleased with it so far.
It should have been stitched on white aida but i did not have any lol, so i used baby blue.
Im looking forward to getting more threads and seeing it progress.
Thanks for looking :)
Noah's Ark Sampler for my sisters new baby.

Welcome to my Blog.
I thought i would start by introducing myself and telling you all a bit about me.
My name is Leah i am 21 years old and i live in Cornwall with my boyfriend Martin who i have been with for nearly 4 years.
We met while we were working in France as Campsite Courier's.
I previously lived in Norfolk with my parents, brother and sister.
I have 5 nieces and nephews and another one on the way.
My hobbies include Card Making and Cross Stitch. I would eventually like to start scrapbooking but i will take one step at a time lol.
I have been Cross Stitching for about 10 years now and i still love it. I am currently stitching bits and bobs for charity and i have just started a sampler for my sister's new baby. Its Noah's Ark and i hope she will like it.
My favourite cross stitch has to be any of the designs from the Bothy Threads Cut Thru series.
I have just recently started Card Making and i love it, everytime i learn a new technique there always seems to be another pop up out of nowhere. At the moment i am enjoying stamping, decoupage and embossing. I also enjoy quilling and i am looking forward to being able to create some different flowers etc.
Well thats enough about me.
