Don't you just love this time of year? I keep meaning to take my camera out for a walk and get some snaps of all the beautiful autumnal foliage we have around our house. It does make the walk to Uni a lot more pleasant when they are amber leaves to kick up!
This is my favourite time of the year for stitching too. Getting cosy with a blanket and a lap full of stitching is where you'll normally find me this season. I feel like I haven't been stitching as much as I'd like to recently, but I have got a new start to share.
New starts are just the thing to boost stitching mojo!
I picked up this Solo the Cat kit way back in 2010 at a big cross stitch convention in London. There were so many stalls selling great bargains, I picked up two kits half price that day. This one above, and a wolves design that is yet to be opened too!
The similar colours in this piece means I have to have a good light when stitching on it. But I'm going along well. I'm not looking forward to all that backstitching though. Some of you may recognise Solo, I've stitched another design with this character before. It's in this post if you'd like to have a nosy. It was the first piece I finished after I started blogging :) How time does fly . . .
I've got a week off from work this week, but still going to Uni most days. I'm looking forward to this weekend though. Me and Lawrence will have been together for two years at the end of the month, so we are celebrating with an overnight stay in London, dinner out and an overnight stay in a swanky hotel! I'm so excited! It's so lovely to be able to treat ourselves once in awhile :)
I'm off to blog read! Can't wait to see what your busy needles have been up to :)
PS Massive thank you to Tricia from The Stamper's Stitches!! She sent me an email saying she had a chart from my wishlist that she would be happy to send me - I'm so delighted! Thank you so much Tricia for brightening my day :D
