More stitcheries

Not a lot of stitching has been happening on the Gardeners Journal quilt stitcheries recently, but over the holiday period I didn’t feel much like knitting or sewing so I picked them up again.

I managed to do the following 3:

The Garden Shed was stitched on New Years Eve accompanied by some rather splendid red wine.  This accounts for the “charmingly” wonky stitching.

I’ve another one in progress at the moment and then I’m about 2/3rds done with them.  Good progress, I think.

    The wonky stitching adds to the charm ! You did all that over Christmas? I am still making a cross stitch wall hanging I started when my son was a baby. He is now 20. Maybe it will be ready for a grandchild sometime, but don’t hold your breath!!

      Are we not holding our breath for grandchildren or that the cross stitch will ever be finished?

        Please don’t hold your breath for either. You may turn a nasty shade of blue! I’m far too young to be a grandma and the Noah’s Ark wall hanging only has the Ark half completed and nothing started of the managerie of animals or decorative detail. It is sadly a lost cause!
        I have just started a blog. I’m a total novice so it’s a bit basic, but please have a peep sometime. As you can imagine sewing and knitting are very unlikely to feature unless it’s to moan about the latest button that I have sewn on, only for it to fall off again minutes later.
