As much as I was dreading the backstitching on Celtic Welcome it has in fact been far more enjoyable than I thought it would be. It makes such a huge difference to the look of the piece that I can’t wait to get back to it every evening. So far I have finished all the cross stitch on both dragons, and have made very good progress on the backstitching on Gwyn.
Some more pics, with a little dragon visitor who seems a bit confused LOL
I also made a small amount of progress this week on L’Automne, by the time I eat my lunch and get my stitching out I probably get about half an hours stitching each lunch hour, so quite slow progress on this one but even slow progress is better than none!
Please excuse the shadows on this pic, but it does show the rest of the gorgeous colours that are used in this design.
We had a sprinkling of snow overnight here and it’s absolutely freezing cold – the perfect excuse to stay in and stitch this afternoon! I’ve done all the housework, the washing machine is taking care of Phill’s socks, although sometimes I think an incinerator would work better LOL, and I made a very run to the Post Office this morning to send off the last batch of ebay sales so I think I’ll reward myself with some more backstitching.
A big thank you to everyone who visits my blog, all your comments are very much appreciated. If you visit but don’t usually comment – it would great to hear from you! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
