Hello again. I forgot to mention in previous blogs that I would be going on a short trip to the New Forest to visit my nan, that's why my blog has been a little quiet recently. We stayed at my Nan's house and visited Bournemouth and Salisbury whilst in that area. I did take Charlie along with me (he is now on the backstitching stages), but I found that I couldn't concentrate on him. Instead, I opted to start on one of the designs I had all the supplies ready for - Luck. This is my progress so far . . .
I really like the bold colours used in this piece and hope to have it finished by the weekend. Charlie has more work to go than I first realised, but he is coming along bit by bit.
Thank you all very much for your views on possible lap frames. I have started researching into them on the Internet, but for now I invested in a huge hoop and will see how I get on with that. I found that my stitching was getting squashed by smaller hoops, so I'm hoping I will like using this giant one better. I bought a couple of pieces in a haberdashery in Salisbury, including another pin cushion and two more skeins of variegated thread to use in red work.
So my summer stitching continues with Luck and Charlie, but I keep finding myself looking forward to brand new projects as soon as I get those two finished. I'll just keep stitching!
Have a wonderful weekend,
