Weekend update

Lots of pictures to share with you again this weekend, so apologies for the long post. I really must try harder to find some time to blog during the week but that’s far easier to say than actually do!

One thing I haven’t got any progress pictures of this week is my craft room. Phill has been very busy at work, and is also suffering with man flu at the moment so my room looks exactly the same this weekend as it did last weekend. But, his work has been rather quiet in the last few months, so I really don’t mind one bit, I would much rather him be working somewhere else and getting paid LOL.

From Tuesday evening, Carriage House Samplings SAL night. I am really loving this design, so much so that once I have stitched Molly I intend on stitching the other girls in the series.


From Wednesday evening, The Sampler Girl SAL night. Again, loving this design and it was very hard not to carry on stitching for the rest of the week. The first thing I will do next Wednesday is stitch some legs on that poor sheep!


The rest of the week has been spent stitching on the February Challenge from Needlecraft Haven forum, which I can’t share with you until reveal day at the end of the month, and working on Ribbon Sampler. This picture really shows up the colours well


My lunchtime ornament is coming along nicely, but silly me left it at work so I can’t share a picture with you at the moment.


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!
