#7.0 TBT Cross Stitch

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!

#3.0 Afternoon tea, baby clothes & books

Evening all!

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

#11 TBT Cross Stitch *09.04.15*

Hi there,

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 πŸ™‚

Happy stitching πŸ™‚
