Hello there everyone!
I’m aware I haven’t posted for a number of weeks- sorry for the radio silence. I’ve been on holiday & then settling back into work. I spent 2 amazing, sunny weeks in Morocco & had a fantastic time! (minus the snakes). I did however make the unfortunate mistake of not taking any cross stitch stuff away with me… So i spent 2 weeks missing my cross stitch & reading far too many books… it was lovely! 🙂
I have now been back in work for a week today & thought it was about time that I updated this wonderful blog on what I have been doing… which to be honest.. sadly isn’t that much.
I have decided that it was about time to pick up a WIP I started in January & start working on it again. It’s called ‘Tandem Wedding sampler’ & I’ve convinced myself the design is by Joan Elliott but I can’t find anywhere on the chart that tells me it’s her! Ok, I’m blind… its definitely Joan’s… I’m not surprised really as she is by far my favourite designer 🙂 so below is a picture I took on Monday afternoon, it’s mainly the groom I have been working on for the last few days. Work is busy at the moment so I’m not stitching as much as I would like… to be fair that may be an excuse… I was off all day yesterday & didn’t complete a single stitch… 😦
It says with the chart that this should take approx 40 hours to complete… it’s totally going to take me closer to 100 the rate I’m going. It’s for a friends wedding in August… so I still have time!
Have any of you completed a wedding sampler for friend of family member before? Please share your pictures or links below so I can take a look 🙂
Anyway, while I sulk & search for my stitching mojo I hope you are all having a productive week of stitching & I look forward to catching up on all the work you have been doing the last few weeks!
