I was planning on doing this post yesterday, but unfortunately life stepped up and got in the way! It's still doing so today really, so you will have to forgive the hideous photography of my unironed pieces with hoop marks all over them . . . . yes I know, I'm commiting a cross-stitchers crime by using a hoop that's way to small for the piece. . . I'm still living out of a suitcase, so my 5 inch hoop is the only stretching object in my possession that's not currently 12000 miles away :D
Anyway, I actually managed to get quite a lot of stitching done over the weekend! Here's my before and after shots on Bothy Threads Love Cats 1. I'm actually really enjoying this piece. The bright colour upon bright colour isn't really my thing, but the small blocks means lots of variety in stitching, so I'm not getting bored!
Over the weekend it was also my birthday and I got to enjoy a nice quiet day with the DH. We've both been really busy lately, so it was good to relax! Don't you just love my birthday cakes from the French bakery?
DH also let me put in a wee order with 123 stitch, which I will show off when it arrives! (hopefully soon!)
Thank you all SO MUCH for all the lovely comments on my last post, it means so much to me. I've been enjoying going around all your! TUSAL's and IHSW's!
Much stitchy love,
