I'm back!


Well it has been a long time since my last post, over 3 months.  I didn't intend to be away from blogging for so long but I have been working on some rather large projects so there isn't as much progress to show regularly.

I've been working on my Heaven and Earth Design chart, Alice in Clockwork by Jasmine Beckett Griffith.  I started her in September last year, and here's where she's up to now...

I started this beauty, Amara and the Book also by Jasmine Beckett Griffith, on 16 February 2018.

I haven't stitched very much of her but I love the colours.  Here's my progress (still on the Qsnaps):

And I also started this Bothy Threads kit as a gift for my Mum who is going to be 70 in September this year.  She is a huge fan of Lowry and asked me to stitch one for her birthday, but she asked me to choose the design and keep it a surprise.  I chose Market Scene-Northern Town.  This is how it will look when finished.

What I love about it is even though I've only stitched part of the roof, it's recognisable as a Lowry because of the colours used.  Apparently he only used a very limited colour palette, mixing the colours with black and white to achieve the different shades used.  Here's my progress to date.

It's  nice to finally update my blog, I'll try not to leave it too long next time.
