Stitched on 32 count linen with included threads
Started December 2008, finished 23rd March 2014
I'm so grateful to finally have this finished, I nearly threw it out last year as I thought I had just left it too late. My son's face when he saw it finally done was worth every stitch. I had really lost the way on this one but once I picked it up again in February I loved every stitch and couldn't put it down!
I've also stitched quite a bit this month on my Bothy Threads Cut Thru Pirate Ship. This is supposed to be a Wednesday SAL with Jan but I hope she will forgive me for stitching on it throughout the week as I just love it!
And here are a couple more photos, first up Bothy Threads Cut Thru North Pole House. I have lost a bit of interest in this one as it's "out of season" - I want to stitch spring things now not winter!
And last up for today is my niece's ballerina picture which I hope to make into a door hanger for her.
I am laid low at the moment with something called post-viral bronchial spasm, which basically just means I feel very breathless. I stupidly pushed on without seeing a doctor until yesterday when I was sent home from work. I haven't felt up to stitching the last couple of days but I have been catching up with reading and commenting on your lovely blogs. I have missed a lot!
Until next time, keep stitching!
