Dawn Chorus

On every tree there sits a bird
Singing a song of love
On every tree there sits a bird
And every one I ever heard
Could break my heart
Without a word
Singing a song of love
 
 
DAWN CHORUS
Price:  9,00 euros
Size in stitches:  293 x 126
 
The words are taken from the song "Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo"
which featured in the 1952 film adaptation
of Paul Galico's short story
The Man Who Hated People.
It starred the lovely Leslie Caron and
Mel Ferrer - remember him?
 
 
 
How can you resist?

Another breathtaking beauty from the Long Dog stables

Here for your delight and delectation is the latest
offering from Long Dog Samplers.
 
 
It goes by the title of:
 
THE STAG PARTY
 
weighs in at 19,00 euros apiece and covers the
area of a small football field.
I exaggerate, its 249 x 421 stitches to be precise.
 
No fancy photo's this time I'm afraid as I'm still unwell,
away from home and don't have access to all my
trusty photographic bits and bobs.
 
So off with you, order by email, settle up by Paypal
and repent at your leisure.
This one has definately got your name on it!

Count Your Blessings

NEW FOR JANUARY 2014
 
 
Count Your Blessings
Size: 153 x 213 stitches
Price: 10,00 euros
 
 
I make no apology for the abominably poor quality of this photo
but I do, however, have a number of good excuses to offer:
 
1.  I was feeling extremely unwell,
2.  the light was very bad as it was raining heavily at the time, and
3.  the iron had blown a fuse.

See ... I was right!

... about the new Long Dog certainly. 
Allow me to introduce you to RAIN DANCE.
 
 
This magnificent chart will set you back no more than 16,00 euros 
and measures 203 x 296 stitches.
 
 
Here's one I made earlier which was worked in a mixture of DMC and
Gentle Art threads on 18# Aida (old habits die hard).
 
Treat yourself, you know you want to you naughty things, you can
always cut back on the gin if you find yourself a bit short at the end of the week.
