Hi everyone! Life has been a bit crazy round here this last week so it's been longer than I intended before I blogged again. I've hardly lifted a needle in the past week and I am missing that (while I stitch because I love doing it there is no doubt it can also be a great stress reliever when I need it!). My parents have had a few issues this week, at 94 and 89 they still live in their own home and want to continue doing that for as long as they can. However, this week something that the rest of us would take in our stride turned into something that seemed to knock them sideways so they’ve been my priority.
Okay, stitching, that’s what I’m here to chat about. First up, here’s where I’m too on
. Christmas Garden
The large middle motifs are next up for me to stitch. I’ve been undecided as to whether to stitch the wording at the bottom or not. I was leaning more towards leaving the wording section out but having seen Katrina’s alphabet idea……well, I just love that and might do something similar.
Remember at the end of last year, I said that I wasn’t going to tie myself down to more than one monthly stitching commitment this year? That idea didn’t last long! Turns out I’ve missed having something other than just a Christmas-related thing each month and I went back to an idea that had been going round in my head towards the end of last year.
I’ve started this one….
PSS Halloween Hornbook Sampler on 32ct salamander Elne of Lynnyn using the suggested DMC
I’m planning on stitching a block each month so that by the time we get to Halloween I should have this one completed.
And that’s about it for this time. As always, thanks for your continued visits and comments. For now I have turned off the word recognition thing for leaving comments (at least I think I have, if I haven’t can someone please let me know!). I know I’m not alone in finding the new system frustrating!
Until the next time…..
