TUSAL and other updates.

I'm quite surprised at how many orts are in the jar this month! I've either stitched more than I had though, or I have been rather wasteful with the threads. I'm hoping it's the first excuse reason. Here's this moths orts along with my jar for the year...


I've also managed to finish the last of the scarves that are Christmas gifts (and it's only October!!! Woohoo!)


I found a really interesting cushion cover made from this yarn, which I'm quite tempted to try. You can see it here.  I'm just not sure if my knitting skills are up for the challenge!

The granny squares count is creeping up albeit rather more slowly than I had hoped!  The grand total is now 86. 


And finally, some updates on my cross stitching projects! Here's the progress on the Geisha...



And you might have to be a bit eagle eyed to see any changes in Simple Treasures...


...but there are a few more stitches than last time - honestly!

Phew! I think I've been rather productive...let's hope it lasts.

Until next time...happy stitching!

86 squares! How many do you need? They are in such beautiful colours though. You have definitely managed more than me and they all look lovely.

Wow - busy busy! Well done on being so ahead on the Christmas scarves, they look lovely! Those granny squares are definitely mounting up, have you thought about joining some up now instead of leaving it all to the end? Maybe your pattern doesn't let you, it's just some people find joining masses of them not such a nice job (I don't personally mind). Lovely to see you have managed to squeeze in some stitching time too, where do you find the hours??? Have a great week, Helen

Glad to see you are up and running again, alive and kicking (or should I say 'alive and stitching' :-) ). Great progress on both projects and ohh you are getting closer to the geisha's face, isn't it? or are you working towards the bottom now? Anyhow, enjoy your stitching ! Ann
