Playing catch-up

Apologies in advance, but this is going to be a catch up post with lots of pictures to share.  More apologies for the picture quality tonight, I just couldn’t seem to take a good photo of anything!

Firstly, from Tuesday evening here’s my start on Molly, the design I’ve chosen to stitch for the Carriage House Samplings SAL on Needlecraft Haven forum.  It doesn’t look much but believe me there are a LOT of stitches in this tiny section!

Wednesday night should have been The Sampler Girl SAL, but for some reason last week I couldn’t remember what day it was, and seemed to jump from Tuesday straight to Thursday (blame a very busy week at work), so I cheated a little and stitched on Northanger Abbey on Thursday evening.

I’m really enjoying stitching on this design, and it seems Mia likes it too lol

The rest of the week I’ve been stitching on Bramble and The Rose, and put the final stitches into the third full page this evening.  Next week I will move on to another of my WIPs, Ribbon Sampler, and complete a full page on that before either returning to Brambles or moving to another WIP.

Finally, I thought I’d share some pictures of the mess that is my craft room at the moment.  We had some problems with a leaking chimney which has led to some plaster coming loose, we also needed to replace the very old window which was more or less falling out.  The chimney has now been taken down, the window replaced and Phill has replastered the wall – the is how it looked today before we started clearing up.

What a mess!  But the good part of this is that my room is going to get new wallpaper and carpet over the next few weeks!  Stay tuned for more pics when it’s finished!

  1. I’m so envious of anyone with a stitching room! Can’t wait to see hoe the decorating goes! Great pics of your projects – I love the bramble and the rose especially

  2. I’m playing catch up with commenting on blogs, lol. And I still have so many blog posts in my reader that I’m always behind …
    You were doing some great stitching lately, Molly and Nothanger Abbey are such great projects.
    Looking forward to seeing pictures of your newly made room.
