Cross Stitch Update (Part 2) and a Wintery Walk

We’re now a week into lockdown; with lots of fun to be had, movie watching, cleaning the craft room, and getting out when we can! I thought this week, I’d share a recent walk, and a little creative cross stitch update too!

This Week

Before I get to the cross stitch update; I wanted to share a recent wander we had; at the beginning of lockdown; along a pretty woodland walk, right here in the heart of the city.

Very Berry Knitting (Part 1)

I’m feeling oddly motivated at the moment; and I thought I’d use that motivation for a little more craft time! I’ve always got something on the go, and I thought I’d try and get back on the needles; with some very berry knitting!

On the desk...

So here goes with another crafty project at the beginning of the year! Though I’m thinking small and easy to accomplish this time, because I always have a habit of starting things but not finishing them!

Cross Stitch – Love Tree (Part 1)

On the desk is back! I’m planning on being a little more realistic this year though! With motivation in mind, I thought I’d start the year with a new cross-stitch project; this is one kit I’ve had lined up for a while, Love Tree from Bothy Threads.

On the desk...

I didn’t really get into any stitching last year, and so I do need to finish The Scarf, but I thought starting fresh with a new project would motivate me. So let me introduce you to my current project…

Pumpkin Carving – Blogtober 2020

Who’s been carving pumpkins? We have actually decided not to do a pumpkin carving this year, mostly because I usually do it so people know they can trick or treat at our house, as locally, people only visit decorated houses.

There is still some fun though we have got some decorations for the window for anyone pumpkin spotting in the area!

I thought I’d share some of my past creations, and a fun hanging pumpkin sign I made for the window!
