Firey Dressmaking and Cross Stitch Update

I’m getting good at this regular posting thing! I had A LOT to do on my dressmaking this week. When I’m taking a sewing class, I always think I’m going to get much further along than I actually do. It is much harder than it looks! Sewing and anything practical does not come naturally toContinue reading “Firey Dressmaking and Cross Stitch Update”

Long-overdue Update and New Course Start!

Sorry it’s been so long since the last update! I’m doing more shifts at work now so I’m still adjusting to that! I haven’t done much knitting but still cross-stitching every day. Only getting about 80-100 stitches in but it’s something. I’ve had quite an exciting development on my “The Shepherdess” HAED. I am finallyContinue reading “Long-overdue Update and New Course Start!”

Stitching with Eunice

I hope everyone got through storm Eunice and Franklin okay. I know Franklin is still raging and I am keeping everyone in my prayers. As I had to batten down the hatches like most people on Friday, I had some time to myself and was able to get lots of stitching done. I am nowContinue reading “Stitching with Eunice”

Craft4Crafters @ Bath and West ’21

On Friday 26th November I was lucky enough to go to the Christmas fayre held by Craft4Crafters at the Bath and West Showground in Shepton Mallet.

Crochet Progress Update, Ordered More Yarn, Cross Stitch Update

Hi all, sorry it’s been a while! I started a new job a few weeks ago so most of my time and headspace has been spent on that, but I’ve been itching to get back on here!

Cross Stitch: New Video and New Start

I’ve made a quick slideshow of the current progress of my main cross stitch project, Butterfly Kisses by Charlotte Bird, charted by Heaven and Earth Designs! I’m currently on my 9th page. Just 33 more to go! It’s a long hard slog but I started almost a year ago and I’m still enjoying it andContinue reading “Cross Stitch: New Video and New Start”

Shepherdess Update and a Watercolour!

Hi all, thought I’d update you on my second Heaven and Earth Designs cross stitch, which is of The Shepherdess by Johann Baptist Hofner.

Many stitchers have what is called in the stitching communityContinue reading “Shepherdess Update and a Watercolour!”
