How are you all doing? Such crazy times right!? Not a whole load of sewing going on over here, what with Mabel’s pre-school being closed, and lack of concentration with all the worry over everything, I haven’t really made it onto my machine. I have been happily hand stitching as much as I can though.…… Continue reading Animal Almanac – Month 3
I thought we could all do with a bit of luck at the moment, and what better way to share that then on St. Patrick’s day, one of the luckiest days! This Lucky pattern I stitched up last year is from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery (who else!?😆). I’ll admit though, I have only just framed…… Continue reading Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I’m not normally quite so patriotic in fact you have to go back to my Great-Grandmother to find my Irish roots, however I simply could not resist this oh so cute pattern from my favourite cross stitch designers The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. I mean how could I not resist?? It has rainbows and kawaii clouds!…… Continue reading Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
As was inevitable I’m starting to fall behind on my monthly sew alongs. My Into the Jungle cross stitch for May is finally finished. I say finally, it didn’t actually take me that long to finish, just getting around to stitching it! I had fondness for this one mainly because little M likes to call…… Continue reading Into the Jungle SAL – Month 5
I seem to be making good progress on my Into the Jungle SAL. April is now all finished and I’ve been gradually working on the header. I love stitching this so much and is probably the reason why I’m able to keep up with it. It’s so nice after a busy, stressful day to curl…… Continue reading Into the Jungle SAL – April
How cute is this little tree frog from this month’s Into the Jungle block!? I really enjoyed stitching this one so much so I pretty much did it in one day. I couldn’t pull myself away, just saying to myself 5 more minutes! It took me back to our honeymoon in Cuba, where one evening…… Continue reading Into the Jungle SAL – March
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. I’m not really a fan of green but I’m actually really liking stitching all the different leaves and trees. Just as well really considering it is jungle themed! 😆 I’m…… Continue reading Into the Jungle SAL – February
It has just occurred to me as I await the arrival of June’s pattern for the Happily Ever After sew along that I never shared with you my completed block for May! Robin Hood! Such a cute little block. I can’t believe we are almost halfway through this already. If you’re undecided about starting…… Continue reading Happily Ever After SAL – Robin Hood
Hello there! I know it’s been a while but *whispers* I’ve still been unwell. Onwards and upwards I hope to be back on top of things soon! I thought I would share with you my completed cross stitch from my last post. It took longer than I had planned, but it’s done now and I’m…… Continue reading A little catch up
