Happily ever....

Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this crazy time with the Coronavirus. Fingers crossed we all have enough craft supplies to keep us going :)

So onto this week's progress report. We have a "happily ever" so far....



....just another week and then they'll live "happily ever after". This has been fun to stitch even the second time round. All those pretty colours and quick colour changes are wonderful....


How can anyone complain when there's so many wonderful threads to use.

I'm caught up on the PeppermintPurple SAL.....



...just waiting for the new block pattern that is released every Wednesday...


...and keeping my fingers crossed that I have enough of that variegated thread! (Maybe I don't have enough craft supplies hoarded after all!)

Hoping you all have plenty of projects to keep you busy. Stay safe and stay healthy.

Until next time....happy stitching.

Playing catch-up!

It's been a crazy busy week here and I haven't had much time to stitch....don't you just hate weeks like that? I never realized how much I rely on my cross stitching to bring me calm and tranquility.

So, as the title suggests, I've been playing catch up with the Peppermint Purple SAL and still have one more block to catch up with before the new block pattern is released on Wednesday......


Last week's block is one of the small blocks (half the size of this one)  so shouldn't be too hard to get done before Wednesday.....or am I jinxing myself by saying that?!!

I'm catching up also with the wedding sampler as I had planned to be a bit further along by now than I actually am....good job I started in plenty of time before the wedding :)


The little flower motifs are fun to stitch with lots of colour changes in each one...


...and the back stitching will really make it pop....


....I just have to get the cross stitching done first! Maybe if we don't eat this week, I can use that extra time where I would have been cooking to get the stitching done :) Or maybe Pizza delivered? That sounds a better plan than going hungry.

Thank you for your suggestions on what you'd like to see on my new website....if you have any more, please do leave me a comment (or comment even if you don't have a suggestion about the website....I love your comments regardless of what they are about!) I'm working on some  free charts and tutorials on what to make with them.....so stay tuned :)

Until next time....happy stitching!

Sshhh...it's a secret!

Not much to show you this week....no Peppermint Purple SAL and only a small bit of the wedding sampler (because that has to get finished in time).....


So...what have I been working on? And what's the secret that I mentioned earlier? Well, I have been working on getting a website for my designs and various other cross stitch related info! I have lists galore of what has to be done and what designs I need to stitch. There are hundreds of bits of paper lying around of little notes that I scribble to myself to make sure I don't forget an idea that randomly pops into my head. I have been doing some stitching too but cant really show too much just now, just a sneaky little peek because I know you'll keep my secret ....


I guess that picture really doesn't show you much, so here's a bit more....


.....that still doesn't show too much! I'm such a tease, but all will be revealed soon, I promise.

Now it's back to those lists for me and hopefully marking more things off as being completed! If you have any suggestions as to what you'd like to see on the new website....free charts, tutorials, finishing techniques etc, please let me know in the comments below. I'd love to know what people would like to see.

Until next time....happy stitching!
