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!

Cross Stitch Progress (Love Tree Part 7)

It’s Friday, and that means (at the moment) cross stitch progress reports! I am still working away at my Love Tree kit; and loving that I can finally choose pretty colours to work in!

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 – 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…

On The Desk – Handmade Face Masks

Of course face masks are around everywhere at the moment. I’ve had my trusty black and pink Disney mask for a while; (which I made during lockdown). But now the UK is making them mandatory in shops from July 24th; the time has come for me to have more than one available.

On the desk...

I haven’t really been out aside from work; or in outside spaces; so I didn’t need more than one mask. They wash up and dry so quickly once I get home from work!

However if I end up working on two consecutive days; and it isn’t quite dry, I’d potentially be left with a problem; and as this is the first week of that potentially happening, I thought I’d make a couple more.
