Oooh a new start.....

Hello wonderful happy friends...

Don't you just love starting a new project?!  I do!!!

So what have I been doing??

I thought about it for a while today, thinking what to stitch.... I mean while I am stuck in bed and not moving much I should do some awesome stitching!!  Well that was my thinking! Ha ha

I missed the GIFTED GORGEOUSNESS day... So this next project I am doing is all thanks to lovely people and I want to Thank You all!!

The chart.... My wonderful husband bought me a while, ok some time ago... Knowing I would eventually get around to it!

The threads.... These were very kindly gifted to me by Gille, I am most grateful for as I knew I really could not afford all the threads to stitch the chart my wonderful husband bought.

The fabric... This also is gifted, by a lovely FaceBook stitching friend from Sweden.

So you see I well and truly qualify for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL!!

I have started stitching it, whilst laying all comfortable my bed, with the fluffy zebra water bottle on my knee!!  And oooh I am really enjoying this more than I thought I would.  It's watching it appear... It's all so fascinating and I love it!

For now I am not going to show you the chart... I want to keep that a secret for now!  Oh but feel free to guess!!

My stitching journey so far....

So that is where I am right now! Ha ha not an awful lot to show you! Ha ha and only 2 colours!!  I can tell you it's a large stitching project, so do not be fooled by the little square I have just stitched!

I hope you are all well and happy?

Talking of happy... Oh yes! I am happy... Well happier!! Why your wondering? Well my medication has been increased and I am happier due to being in a little less pain!  Stitching is really helping taking my mind off the pain... I need to stitch 24/7! Ha ha

Ok I am going now as I want to stitch more!!

Smiles to you all :)



  1. So wonderful to hear you are happier!! And the pain is more under control...and you are stitching!! I am intrigued!!

  2. oooo.....what are you stitching Jacquie??!!! Intrigued!

  3. I'm intrigued too! Looks like fun. Glad to hear your pain is less. Cross stitch is good therapy!

  4. Wonder what design you're working on??

  5. You can still link up for this month's GG, the linky is open until the end of the month.
    I'm very intrigued by this picture too.

  6. I am so happy you are happy dear. Glad the pain is better managed.

  7. Oh no, not me! I'm the weirdo who doesn't like starting new things because I always muddle something up ahaha! Once that start up stage is past, I'm good to go though. :D

    Let me take a guess! It's ummm.. a car! Yes, that round spot at the bottom is where the wheel will be. And the squarish area will be a sign advertising, umm, floss! The cross-stitchers car! With a shiny zigzag running through it because it was freshly waxed. Right, right? Am I right?? /silly

    Glad your pain is being managed better, they'll figure it out eventually! :D

  8. Jacquie, I am glad that you have less pain!
    A new start is great!

  9. Glad you're able to stitch in a little less pain! It looks wonderful, and I'm very curious as to what the design is...

  10. A very intriguing picture, looking forward to seeing more.

  11. Have no idea what you are stitching, but I'm sure it will be a fun design! Look forward to seeing it!
    Glad your pain is a little better and hope for more improvement!

  12. The poeple who do good work they could go on the blog.

  13. Nice start. Are you going to keep us guessing for months or spill the beans?
