Two years and 3 months after I first started this cross stitch and a year and 3 months behind the sew along I have finished my Into the Jungle! I can’t tell you how satisfying it was to put that final stitch in place! I think this fabric is telling me it wants me to…… Continue reading Into the Jungle SAL – Completed!
I’ve said it many times but sewing is my therapy. My escape, my opportunity to zone out from everything and enjoy what I am doing. I have never been very good at sitting and doing nothing, and of an evening I must have a stitchy project of some sort on the go! I’ve also mentioned…… Continue reading Keep Calm and Cross Stitch

Following on from the super cute sloth of last month’s block are 3 bright and colourful Toucans who are apparently the national birds of Belize.

Just as well really considering it is jungle themed! 😆 I’m…… Continue reading Into the Jungle SAL – February
So January saw the start of a new SAL (sew-along) from the clever girls at The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. I wasn’t going to join in with this one but couldn’t resist when I saw the sloth! As the next instalment is released tonight I thought I’d share block 1 with you. Of course they haven’t…… Continue reading Into the Jungle SAL
