Firstly an update on the Handmade, with Love cross stitch. As you can see I haven't done much stitching since the last post, but at least I have done some! I really love stitching with 3 threads, it makes it much easier!
I will also endeavour to post some pictures of my WIPS - now there is quite a few of them so I will feature one WIP each post. The first WIP is my oldest cross stitch, and I think I have been doing it for about 16 years...Why haven't I finished it? Well because its a very difficult pattern (as most Teresa Wentzler patterns are) and I picked it up after about 10 years of not doing anything on it, and found that some of the grey DMC cottons have changed slightly in those years - serves me right for not finishing it in a respectable time frame!
Anyway after putting out a SOS for some old DMC cottons that someone has from years ago - A big thank you to the ladies (and gents) of the chatelainedesigns.yuku.com message board! I now have 2 of the old DMC cottons so I can carry on stitching.
Since the Christmas holidays are fast approaching I have started to make a list of craft related things I will do with my few days I have off from work. Since its is summer over Christmas, I'm usually out on my bike enjoying the summer days, so my list will be short but hopefully productive!
A few cute pictures to finish - This is my cat - the Ginga Ninja - he is a rescue cat from the SPCA
