I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

My First Prairie Schooler!

Yes, you read the title correctly!  I have just stitched my very first Prairie Schooler design!  And I loved it... don't know why it took me so long to stitch one!  As usual I am late to the party and I have discovered that I enjoy stitching them just as the designers have decided to stop designing!!

My first PS stitch is "Pumpkin Man".  I stitched him for the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL Blog as February's theme is "Mummies and Monsters".  I always have trouble finding designs for this theme as I am not a stitcher of monsters normally... but when I saw this design I thought he was cute and just the thing for February!!

Finish #5
"Pumpkin Man" - The Prairie Schooler

"Pumpkin Man"
Finished 14 February 2016
The design was published in the Just Cross Stitch Magazine Halloween 2015 issue.  He was very quick to stitch, which was great as a quick finish is just the way I like it!! :o)

I have now started another small Prairie Schooler design which I hope to be able to show you in the next few days as I think it should stitch up quite quickly as well.

So that's it for this post... but I will be back shortly with my GG update and another finish!!

See you then!
Hugs xx
