WIPW - Too Hot to Stitch

May I begin with a big THANK YOU for all the kind comments on my last post, and please accept my apologies for not having answered your comments, or visited your blogs.

It was my intention to have completed the Fruity Cushion by now, to have added a lot more canvas stitches to my Pile 'em On, to have finished the Music block for NHK's Partnership Quilt project and to have started a new piece of clothing with Swedish wool embroidery.

Alas, my days are filled with million other things, so the WIPW report this week is another  meagre one.

Pile 'em On

The newly added canvas stitches are:
Double Cross Stich in light blue, and a half finished block of Reversed Cross Stitch in light green. Another coloured thread will be worked on top of these stitches to complete them.

Fruity Cushion
Here I have added new stitches to a number of areas.

It is H O T in Tokyo and hard to stitch. I don't know when my next WIP report will be...


  1. Queenie, the canvas stitch sampler is coming up nicely. Your fruity cushion is looking different and unique.

  2. I'm happy to see your post. I read a Japan Times article about how horrible the heat is in Tokyo. I hope you get some relief soon.

  3. I wish for you that heat decreases slightly in Tokyo. Your fruity cushion is really lovely.

  4. I love the fruity cushion colours!

  5. Sorry to hear about the heat, hope it lets up soon for you. Your working is beautiful and interesting.

  6. Hot there cold here. Come December I will be decrying the heat and you the cold. I am so glad to see that you have managed to do some stitching. I find that it is the one thing that keeps me on an even keel when life gets in the way. Thinking of you.

  7. good to see you back on your blog Queenie, take care my friend

  8. So good to see you back on line. You still have time to get that partnership block into the mail ... and I look forward to another group viewing with you and Tanya. I keep thinking there are folks out there who pay real money to sit in a sauna and I am getting all this for free.

  9. Good to see you back, you have done some lovely stitches!

  10. I's good to see your progress, the fruity pillow gets prettier every time you share it!
