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!
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.
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.
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…
Well, it’s getting back to normal time for me; this week our store reopens (today in fact); so I’m back to work, and I’ll be heading back to a sort-of normal routine!
I’m off today; so we’re enjoying the very last of the good weather having booked a time-slot at my favourite National Trust property; Lanhydrock. Though of course the house remains closed, we plan on having a nice walk around the gardens and woodland there for a bit!
Can’t believe we’re in June! I have been trying to keep busy with cleaning and garden stuff this week; my flowers are growing, so I thought it only fitting that I work on something similar craft-wise too!
This year I picked up a few mini cross stitch kits. For those moments when I’m not as motivated to work on a larger project. This week has been one of those weeks…
I thought I would start with a project I have worked on before; Santoro Gorjuss The Scarf cross-stitch; but just struggled to make time to work on! Here’s hoping this new year, I have refreshed motivation!
This week I’ve decided to dig out a cross-stitch kit! I used to do tons of stitching, and then I got out of the habit, and it’s something I’d like to get back to again. I find it really relaxing and I’ve actually been stitching since I was 7. I’d like to complete at least one kit this year, as I have many waiting for me to even start!
There will be a few regular posts appearing here on The Craft Room and Beyond each week or so, as well as each month, and one of those weekly (or possibly fortnightly) updates will be “On the Desk” each or every other Wednesday, where l will head into the craft room and share what I’m up to…
Happy New Year! And Hello 2019! I’m feeling refreshed and motivated with the change of the calendar; the clean page in a diary and the new start, that all come with a new turn around the sun.
The last few months have been a whirlwind of activity here on the blog, with blogmas and even before that; and I am really hoping this will continue. I’d like to begin by thanking you – without you here, reading, leaving likes and comments and sharing on Social Media; this little blog would be far less successful! So thank you for stopping by!
This year, I have a few things lined up already; I am going to carry on posting as usual on Tuesdays and Fridays; but occasionally might add one or two in the week to keep things interesting! It will be the usual mix of craft, days out, and randomness!
Christmas crafting is something I have done for quite a long time, and I thought now would be a great time to share some older handmade decorations. Projects previously featured here on the blog, for those who haven’t seen them before.
My “main” craft for a very long time, was cross-stitch, something I have plans to get back into more next year. A lot of my handmade decorations feature cross-stitching, so here are some posts I thought I would share from last year…
