Stitching – Love Tree Progress (Part 8)

Happy Friday! (Or of course whenever you are reading this)! We’re back to somewhat normal scheduling, and that means back to stitching – Love Tree is getting along since the last update. Some more colour added, and it’s starting to take shape, though of course there’s a way to go yet.

On the desk...

For those who haven’t seen previous updates; this is a cross-stitch kit; aptly named Love Tree; based on artwork by Kim Anderson, and produced by Bothy Threads. I fell in love with the design when I saw it, and received it for Christmas a couple of years ago; so I’ve had it in my stash a while now! I have decided 2021 is the year it gets done!

Little Updates – A-Z Challenge 2021

An interesting one for L; which in fairness, was sort-of my plan for all the titles in this years A-Z Challenge series. I talk about how I started blogging, and eventually changed up how I post, from constant small projects, to the inclusion of bigger ideas with little updates. Whether they are long term craft projects; life in general, or other nonsensical ramblings!

A-Z Challenge 2021

This year my A-Z Challenge theme is: The Craft Room and Beyond – A Retrospective. A look back at previous content and basically a chance to share and revisit some things from the archive. As well as exploring things that haven’t made it to the blog yet! As I have said before; if you see something that piques your interest that I don’t link to; certainly seek out the search bar, or get in touch!

On the desk...

Last week I shared the first colour introduction to my work in progress; and I’m excited to have moved on with another colour this week!

Love Tree Update (Part 6) Colour Begins

So we’re back with the current project, and it’s a slightly brighter Love Tree update! I really wanted to get into stitching this week because I can finally stitch in colour!

On the desk...

As much as it has been fun to work in metallic thread, and find myself not totally hating the experience; for a change, I was delighted to thread something other than silver onto my needle this week! So what colour have I started with?

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.
