Hi everyone! I’m realising that it’s been a while since I stitched a larger project. I was more than ready to have one on the go but there’s no doubt, when all I seem to be doing these days is blog about my progress on Christmas Garden, I begin to wonder if anyone out there is starting to think ‘another post about CG, she sure is a slow stitcher’!!!!! Now, of course, what doesn’t help is that I finished the top section about a week ago and I’m only getting round to sharing now (and not one more stitch have I put in her since last week!). I’ve been doing that thing of jumping from one thing to another (in everything, not just stitching) and getting myself into something of a funk because I’m being totally distracted. So, let’s see if I can concentrate for more than five minutes and let you all see what has been going on around here.
First up, said
. Still a joy to stitch (even if I feel it’s all I’m talking about!). Christmas Garden
Then, given that we’re almost to the end of March (how did that happen?!?!) here are two PS Santa finishes. One from last month which I realised I didn't share in February and the one I stitched this month. The Feb one is from the PS leaflet, Old World Santas II - stitched on 32ct natural light linen using suggested DMC -
and this month’s is a PS freebie that I’ve had for a number of years. This little fella is meant to have teeth but I put the backstitching in for those and really didn’t care for how it seemed like he turned into a scary, grinning Santa so instead I’ve gone for the more genteel look of lips!
Hope all is well with you and yours! Like many places we’ve been enjoying some glorious sunny days with temperatures way above what they should be for this time of year. If the sun is shining in your part of the world – enjoy! As ever thanks for taking time to drop by and read/comment on my ramblings!
Until next time ……
