Autumn apples

Well well.

I've always had a penchant for uniqueness.

If I see a crowd of people going one way in town,

I'll search for another path.

It seems that * Kisses and stitches

 isn't *quite* the unique blog name

I was yearning for.

So, the search goes on!

I'm having a day off work today.

This weekend darling ( hubby) and I

are off on a well earned weekend break.

Thank you Groupon :)

I have much loveliness planned.

We are booked into a four star hotel in our city

 ( he doesn't know this yet)

on Friday night,

 and then on Saturday we are travelling to Donegal,

a beautiful part of Ireland with stunning views of the Atlantic ocean.

The hotel we are staying in is an old restored church,

with the stain glass windows still in place in the restaurant.

How romantic!

I plan to do nothing but read and sew, read and sew.

At the minute I'm sewing this
a pretty design I bought from the wonderful Zaza Pique.

You can see her blog over there-------> in my blog list.

This is another WIP
which I have promised myself to finish before this year has gone!

My work basket is eternally full of WIP'S!

Whatever your weekend brings, I pray it is filled with beauty and creativity and
most of all love.

Kisses and stitches,
Anita xxx


  1. You are stitching lovely designs, Anita!
    Nice to see you are posting! xx

  2. Your weekend away sounds wonderful! Isn't Groupon brilliant? I hope you both have a great time.

    And I agree with Yuko. I love seeing pictures of the projects you have on the go. And your work basket is so cute! xxx

  3. Yuko darling friend!
    Thank you so much for joining my site!
    I have so much to learn to catch up with you though!
    Please come back and visit often, I will update as often as I can.

  4. Amy my sweet little one!
    Thank you so much!
    Do you cross stitch?
    I love the way all those little stitches look like kisses and yet make such lovely pictures!
    Isn't creativity wonderful?

  5. I do cross stitch sometimes, but I have to be in the mood and I must confess I'm not very good at it. I try to follow the pattern but I'm always going wrong :-( I have a really lovely cross stitch set (it's more of an embroidery kit) that I'm eager to begin but it looks really challenging! At the moment I don't have time for any stitching at all :( xxx

    P.S. It always takes me a long time to think up a good name for a blog, but I've found they do come in time. Personally, I like Kisses and Stitches - and I like what you said about the stitches looking like kisses and making up a picture. I've never thought about it in that way before. You are so clever x

  6. Amy i found it helpful to photo~ copy the pattern, and as I stitch each section I colour it in, in pencil or a highlighter pen. This helped me to remember what sections I had done.
    I'm rather hopeless at it too, some of my pieces have more mistakes than I care to remember lol.
    However I take heart in the fact that The Bayeux Tapestry had a lot of errors too, haa!
    Hope you aren't working too hard sweetie, remember to take a little time for yourself each day.
