I’m having a happy dance with a lovely bright piece of stitching. “Live simply” a Dimensions kit that I snapped up on the sewandso January sale for just over £2. I can never resist a bright project, and at that price, well . . .
This piece has been stitched with a small patchwork project in mind . . . more on that when I get round to it.
In the meantime, a finish means I was allowed to rummage in my stash drawer in search of a new start. I’ve gone for something completely different.
Another Dimensions kit: “Victorian Charm”. This kit was a gift from N and 2nd second son, for Christmas 2015, so it’s been sitting my in stash drawer a while. I’m a little apprehensive about it. I have more than 20 years of cross stitching under my belt, so I’m not worried about the details, heaps of colour changes, blending of threads and backstitch . . . it’s the fabric I’m apprehensive about. Kit comes with 18 count dark navy aida and my eyes aren’t as good as they used to be. Then again, if I don’t tackle it now, then it’ll sit in the drawer for even longer! I did contemplate swapping for a lighter aida, but then the night sky won’t be as effective. So, nevermind about the dark navy . . . I’ll just have to be methodical, and take things slowly. By my estimation, this could keep me busy probably all through the Spring and the Summer!
