Long Absence

I can’t believe that I haven’t posted since October last year.  Had some things that needed sorted out on the home front but things are looking good again and I have been stitching a wee bit now and then to get me back into the swing of it.  I bought this kit called Tartan Thistles by Textile Heritage and just finished it yesterday, still to be washed and pressed.  I love the colours in it and am now just looking for a wee frame for it so I can put it up in my bedroom.  I did think about giving this one away to one of my friends but decided I didn’t want to part with it.

I am now stitching a version of a chart I found in Cross Stitcher Magazine (Issue 257) of Belle & Boo.  Will be making a few alterations to it that I will explain as I go along.  If you are familiar with this chart you will see that it is already the opposite way round but all will become clear soon.  I have made a start on some of the leaves and Belle’s mitten and jumper.

It’s good to be back, hopefully have another update during the week.  Take care.
