Stitching time? What's that?

Well it's been another week where life has hijacked my stitching time! I didn't really get a chance to stitch during the week, but I made up for it at the weekend....although I really should have been doing other things, but hey....what's life without stitching?!!!



I'm still not loving stitching the white, but I did force myself to do some more of it. You can see it better in this picture...



....unfortunately for me, there's still quite a bit of the white to finish off.  Arghhhh.

Did you notice my little scissor holder (go on...scroll back up and you'll see him!)...isn't he cute?



I spotted him in the clearance section of my local craft store just before Christmas...can you believe he was reduced to only $3.  So of course, he had to come home with me! Cute and functional and best of all....didn't break the bank!

Well, life is calling....tons to do! Thanks for popping by to my little corner of the blog world :)

Until next time...happy stitching!

You are moving along. The white will blend in and look gorgeous when you get it all finished up. Keep going and it will be past. Beautiful scissor holder and what a deal.

Keep plodding along with the white and you'll get to the end sooner than you think. And your owl pot is gorgeous. I'm glad he's found a good home! :)
