I’m using Thursdays throwback this week as an opportunity to showcase some of my old cross stitch projects I’ve completed over the last few years. Here are just a few of them…
bring on some stitchy motivation!!
Most of these are pieces I completed & gifted to other people (my fave thing to do with finished xstitch)
If you would like any more details about the designs used just comment below & I’ll do my best to dig out the original post!
I probably should find a more social time to post other than after 10pm, but it seems to be the only time I can get round to posting.
Tonight’s just a quick post about today’s comings & goings. Today has been a productive & happy day ☺️ I hope you can all say the same on what was a pretty miserable Saturday.
This morning my husband put the first layer of paint in our bedroom & I unpacked a few boxes which is something to tick off the to-do list for this weekend. I also managed a little light reading of my Hypnobirthing book.
Then this afternoon we went for a drive to meet up for a friends 30th birthday. Afternoon tea in Clitheroe. It was really good! I’m still full from it now ☺️
On the way back from afternoon tea we stopped in the Trafford Centre to get a few bits & stretch my legs. I’ve found since luke passed his driving test in October that I barely walk at all anymore! That & with my cankles I really struggle so I’m trying to make every effort to be as mobile as possible. I definitely felt it after our walk round the TC. Lower back pain sucks!
Anyhow, whilst we were out I got a few items in prep for baby – disposable underwear, bottoms up spray, nappy rash cream…I also got this ADORABLE outfit which I’ve decided is going to be his ‘coming home’ outfit 😍😍😍
Isn’t it too cute?! I’m so in love with it!!
As a treat I also stopped off in Waterstones (I can never resist!) and picked up a few books for the to read pile. I’ll share a list of them in the next few days.
Finally, tonight when I’ve got in I’ve just chilled with a film ‘Unknown’ and my cross stitch.
Not a bad day all round really! Oh, I also fired off a few posts on my book club page about reading challenges for this year & voting for books to read in Feb. I’ll post more on that later!
I hope you’ve all had a good day & most the most of it.
Sleep well & bring on Sunday 🌟 xxx
Above is my TBT post of the week! It’s a small project I completed for one of my best friends. I always feel bad that I can’t name the designer, but I can tell you it’s another design I used from one of my cross stitch magazines!
The more I post these TBT posts, the more I feel like I need to somehow keep a log of where I got the design from & who designed it! How do you do this? Any smart ideas?
When you stitch, who/what do you stitch for? I really enjoy stitching for other people… It gives me purpose & I love handing over a handmade gift… It usually means so much more! Saying that… I can’t decide if I’ll stitch this particular friend a gift again… I was in her room recently & couldn’t see this anywhere! I half thought it would have pride of place somewhere! Silly me!
My other reason I’m feeling this way is because recently I stitched her a card & she left it in the pub! 😦
So yeah, one more day at work until my weekend can begin! Saturday has been left free just to stitch 🙂
Happy stitching 🙂
