Lucky Finish

My summer months are always filled with stitching. Especially at the moment, when the sun is still hiding behind the clouds and the temperature is just warm enough. I think these are perfect conditions for stitching at the moment, but I do like stitching in winter a little bit more. There's something really cosy about snuggling into your favourite chair and settling down to stitch. Although, I bet when the weather does turn colder, I'll be wishing for warm sunny temperatures once again!
I have been getting lots done recently, so here is Luck all finished!

This was such a sweet little design that didn't take very long at all to stitch. I also did the French knot first time, definite signs of improvement!
As soon as Luck was done, I threaded up my needle immediately to start on my favourite design from this month's CrossStitcher. How cool is this retro design?

Each month, CrossSticher holds a contest to see who will be the first to make one of their designs featured in the issue. I've never entered before but I think I will with this piece - my needle is zooming through it!
I am continuing with my stitching on this lazy Sunday morning, then I'm meeting up with a friend for ice cream later on today. Let's hope the sun makes an appearance.
Have a lovely week,

Luck looks great, like an old-school tattoo!

What a great new start you'll be done in no time!
