Many of my daily chores keep me away from the computer so blogging has been very limited. Luckily I have been able to find pockets of time for needlework and have added the following stitches to my
Pile 'em On
Woven Cross Stitch Broad Cross Stitch
Tweed Stitch Gate Stitch
Goblin Stitch Eastern Stitch
I pulled these Eastern stitches too much, but they were fun to make. Eastern Stitch was included in the TAST (Take A Stitch Tuesday) project and this is what I wrote about it two years ago.
In the middle are the stitches in white that my mother made many years ago. When I found this UFO of hers, I tried to complete it, but my tension is totally different from hers. Instead I started working my Canvas stitch sampler around her work.
I have already started on some new Canvas stitches so next week's WIPW report will contain a number of new ones.
I have also started work on the Hanging Hina Dolls for this year. Watch this space as they are coming up soon!
