Solo September project reveal

Well I bet my regular readers weren't expecting this!


And neither was I!

My stitching mojo has been missing a bit in August so I decided to treat myself to a new start, and my youngest son saw a stitched model of this one and to cut a long story short it came home with us!

So for September I will be mostly stitching grey and white.

I have no idea how long this is going to take me but it's very different to what I normally stitch!

Good luck to everyone who is joining in with Solo September and stitching on just one project this month.  Hope you all have a good month and don't forget to share your progress with us.

Any progress is good progress! I also prefer to cross country. I start with the darkest colours and work to the lightest. You really see the design grow that way.
