Stitching Update

The weather has been way too hot here lately to do much stitching.  It was 45 degrees on Friday which has hot enough to melt your needles.

I have done a little more on the Stained Glass Elegance latch hook rug.  This is a really enjoyable piece to stitch on. 

Also a close up of The Pointed Ivory Runner.  I love doing cable stitch - it's very therapeutic.

Happy stitching,

Current Pieces

A couple of photos of a few of the pieces that I am currently working on.

The first photo is of the Ivory Pointed Runner which is a pattern from 2006 Award Winning Hardanger Designs from Nordic Needle.  I have changed the colours on this one to cream and shades of green instead of cream, blue and pink.  Am really enjoying this one.  Still have a far amount to go.

This next photo is of the latch hook rug that I am currently working on.  It is called Stained Glass Elegance and is a kit by Craftways.  Am only up to row 20 on this one which consists of 149 rows all together.

Happy stitching,

I have decided to keep a blog this year to keep a track of my stitching and to see how I go as to reducing my UFO list.

I have been a long time reader of blogs and at times have dabbled with different blogs but have found it difficult to stick with it - so I'm giving it another go.

I love all things cross stitch, hardanger and quilting.  I am currently enjoying trying latch hook rugging - and am enjoying it immensely.

I'm not sure if anyone will find this blog interesting or will even get any readers but if anyone does find themselves reading my ramblings please let me know and I will return in kind by stopping by your blog.

Hopefully I will be able to work out how to post a photo tomorrow of my latest working piece.

Happy stitching,
