I have had a relaxing stitching weekend! Sounds like I have been somewhere!! No! I assure you all I never left my bed! Ha ah
Stitching is such a happy thing to do... I love it!!
So want to see what I have been doing??
Wondering how my garden is growing??
I am still stitching Gathering Honey, I am stitching is design on 22 count antique white fabric 1 over 1 with DMC threads. And the chart was kindly gifted to my from Vickie (stitchers story blog).
This is the design...
Here is where I was on my last post... Just done the outlining...
I was itching to start the flower and veg beds... They looked so lovely, all those colours..
How cute are those turnips?
This is where I am now!!
I love it!!
My favourite bit... It was fun stitching all those French knots!
Oh my!! I am usless at taking photos!! Ha ha. You all know that! Maybe this one is a little clearer?
So tomorrow..ha ha I should say later, I will be stitching the next step... Maybe some lettering and words? Eeeeeekk exciting!!
Oh but that's not all I got up to!! You may recall I joined a little abc SAL? I put a little link in my margin if you want to go see or even join in! Three parts have been released now... And new parts released every two weeks now. It's a rather cute SAL and I am enjoying it lots too :)
Here are the three parts so far...
I am stitching this on 30 count natural linen 2 over 2 with DMC threads. Yes I changed some of the colours, went with what I had in my stash.
So it's technically Monday now! Haha have a lovely week!!
I will plod on with the stitching.. A quiet week here, no appointments and not going anywhere! So you know what that means??? Plenty of stitching!! Ha ha
It's currently just gone 5 am... I am still awake, I have terrible insomnia. I have tried all the usual techniques of relaxing, nothing! I don't stitch all through the night! I am not super human! Ha ah I am roughly only sleeping around 4 hours a day right now. I guess my body does not need the sleep, when it does I will drift off! Being awake all this time I think, well not much else to do! Thinking...hmmm yes!! I have decided to do something rather drastic... All will become clear one I finish Gathering Honey. I need to finish that design before embarking on a BIG job! Ha ha well why not, it's not like I am going anywhere soon!
Have a good week :)
Until I next pop in, keep smiling :)
