Xmas stitching

Last time I looked at the calendar it was August so how suddenly, are we in October?  That's not strictly true of course but it feels that way.

Again, I have been very remiss in posting.  This  in part has been due to having a big falling out with my cross stitch hobby. 

The project I featured in my previous post has become a UFO but after rediscovering my love of stitching in late August, I've been busy stitching festive bits.  As per usual, I start and never finish but hopefully I will get myself organised and be able to post some pics of  some finished items on here soon.

another square....

Despite the long weekend, I haven't managed as much stitching as I would have liked.  I have however completed another square of my pooh project.  pic below.....

This pic introduces the green (two different shades) and I've parked the thread ready to continue with the green stitching in the adjacent squares.

My Pooh and Piglet project

This is a project I started last year and is another UFO.    I must dig it out and continue stitching with it.  I decided with this project that I would take a pic after I stitched each square. I've posted pics, square by square below.  All of these squares were stitched over the space of one weekend not long after publication of the magazine (I estimate March 2012) and I haven't touched it since !

stitched: 5/6 May 2013: -  green is added !
threads parked ready and waiting...

Its been a while....

It has been a little while since I last posted so I thought it was about time I popped on to say hi and to show you my latest project.

It isn't much but is something I started only yesterday and which I hope to have finished this week.

Its from a new cross stitch book by Michael Powell.  I ordered it in January so was quite excited when it popped through my letterbox the other day.

The designs are lovely and there are plenty I want to stitch.  :)
