Cross Update

Welcome 🙂

I try very hard to reply to everyone who comments on my posts, it’s so lovely to get feedback that it’s the least I can do 🙂 however some of you may have either not got a reply or even got more than one from my last post, so if that’s you I humbly apologise. Outlook has been having ‘a moment’ or rather, several ‘moments’. Every time I sent an email it would shut down and then, I think, send the emails anyway. And I would log back on and resend the emails so ….sorry 🙂

Back to sewing.

I thought you might like to have a progress report on the Cross stitch picture I’m finishing off for a friend. The original post about it is here.

The picture has an Easter theme and someone suggested that it would be nice if I could give it back to my friend at Easter which I thought was a lovely idea.

So I’ve been working like crazy to finish it but these things do take time especially as I like to work on multiple projects at any one time. I’m sure a lot of us are like that aren’t we? How many projects are you actively working on right now?

So far the cross stitch has gone from this,


to this,


and now to this,


The actual cross stitch is about a couple of hours away from being done, which will leave the outlining left to do. I always find that that takes much longer than you think it will but it also makes such a difference to the picture – so you can’t skimp on it!

How many weeks is it until Easter (help!!)


Snail update! Son 1 has had a trip to Plymouth and found all the snails he needs for his research – just thought you’d like to know 🙂

Until next time,

I’m linking this up to Esther’s WOW post which can be found here.

  1. Glad Billy has some mates now!! I hope you get the cross stitch finished in time, nothing like a deadline to make us get something done! Only trouble is all the ‘me’ bits then get put to one side! I love having several things on the go, and more planned, at the moment though I have way too many ideas in my head!! X
