Slowly but surely….

Hello everyone,

Thanks to all of you who have already expressed interest in joining the Mystery Blackwork SAL. You have only 6 days to gather a few items from your stash if you want to start on Friday. See here for more details of what you will need. I do hope you will stitch along with us πŸ™‚

It’s been a busy week for me so I haven’t been able to do any patchwork or quilting for a few days. However, I have done some more of the Narrow Boat cross stitch from Bothy Threads.

Here is where I was up to on the last update.

CIMG2470There is a lot of black back stitch outlining and a few French knots to add when all of the cross stitching is complete. It will give the design a sort of cartoon appearance which I think is quite fun!

When it is finished, it will look like this.

CIMG2471I’ve already stitched the camper van from the same series and it finally has a frame!

I’m very excited!!

A few minutes here and there!

Hi everyone!

Thank youΒ for continuing to visit and comment even though I’ve hardly had anything to show for a while. I will get back to serious crafting at some point in the future, maybe a few weeks from now πŸ™‚ It’s all rather hectic at this end but a few spare moments here and there with my cross-stitch are helping to keep me sane!! I’m missing crafting so much πŸ™‚

Here is the latest progress on my Bothy Threads narrow boat kit.


A reminder of what it will look like in the end.

Cut Thru' Narrow Boat

I hope you are all having a thoroughly crafty time!
