Quilting has passed me by this week as I have been so busty with work and ….well everything!
I have, however, managed to do quite a bit of cross stitch and made a lot of progress with the narrow boat kit from Bothy Threads. I’m really enjoying making this one.
There is still another band of 24 stitches deep to stitch across the bottom. I have been working along in a straight line as I would need to roll up the frame to stitch any further down. I have continued to resist the urge to do any of the back stitch as that is what will make the design pop when I finally do it. I’m really looking forward to that part!
Waiting in the queue are a blackwork Elizabethan house, worked with black on ecru, then a rather complicated blackwork design called Pentecost. Next up will be another cut thru from Bothy Threads called Vintage Caravan and finally an old secret UFO which will be dragged out of the cupboard after waiting patiently to be frogged for over 20 years. Looks like I’ll have no time for quilting! Only joking
Talking of joking…..I’ve been rolling on the floor laughing at my typo in this post. Did you spot it? I know I shouldn’t laugh at my own jokes but I’m leaving this error in place so you can all have a giggle at my inability to press one key at a time, see what I mean ? 😆
Finally, finally….am I allowed two? Please feel free to join my Mystery Blackwork Stitch Along. Sorry if I keep banging on about it but there is still time to join in the fun. You know you want to, so what are you waiting for? Parts 1 and 2 are here and here respectively, and the gallery is here. Just click the red words. No doubt you are Oh Sew Tempted! Let me know if you do decide to join the group and which country you are from.
Now, I’m off to cross stitch!
