Happy Monday!


Another weekend gone and not as much stitching done as I had hoped/planned to get done, but that’s life!

I was delighted to see that I have a few more followers, so thank you to those people who pop on and become followers…much appreciated!

And now on to the stitching, which is more than likely why you are here! So there has been some progress on the Mighty Samurai. The peacock, suddenly, is almost stitched! When did that happen? Maybe I did get more stitching done over the weekend than I had first thought.




And now for the Scottish Thistles.

The first one is complete! I have to say this was a joy to stitch, although maybe by the time I’m on number four, I will have changed my opinion!


I’m thinking that since I have four to do that I might just change the colour of the thistle so that each one is slightly different. One could be more of a pink colour, another more lilac and the last one maybe more of a heather colour. I shall experiment and see what they look like. That’s the thing I love about cross stitch – you can change just one colour of thread and give a design a completely different look.

Well that’s all my stitchy news for today, thanks for stopping by.  Please do leave a comment...even if you only want to say 'hi', you have no idea how much that makes my day!

Until next time…happy stitching!

I think it's a great idea to try stitching the thistle in different colours. I can't wait to see how the next one will look!

Your Samurai is awesome! I just love the bright colors. I think that changing the color on the thistle will be a great way of making the design even more special.
