2. I really did not need to keep buying skeins of DMC 3799 brown/grey. I already had 5 of them.
3. I hate knots.
4. For someone who usually stitches from kits, I had a lot more threads than I thought (over 200 skeins).
5. I can now wind bobbins in my sleep.
6. I am so relieved it's over and I can start cross stitching again!
Well, it went from this....
which is a big improvement!
An update on tall ship which is my must-stitch piece as it has a deadline to be stitched and framed by January 27th. I am really pleased with my progress and hope to have at least all of the sails done by the end of November.
And finally, a couple of fun giveaways I have come across...
Heather at Heather's Stitching Story is giving away some lovely charts and threads.
And Nancy at the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe is giving a Sewing Necessaire - your choice of colour. They are so beautiful I cannot choose which one I like best!
Thank you all for reading my blog and for your lovely comments and words of encouragement. I would be a very lonely stitcher but for you all as I don't have any stitchy family or friends in "real life". It's a privilege to be able to share our hobby together.
Until next time
