Hello friends, I hope you're all keeping warm and dry. These storms are awful aren't they? I've managed to dodge the worst bits, but I did have to walk to work in the rain at the weekend, not fun.
I didn't have a lot to share with you when I first thought about writing a post. I will admit, I have fallen out of love with this little Christmas design. I still think it's cute, but the scattered stitches of similar colours are driving me mad. I will get it finished eventually, but it wasn't helping me to relax after a long day at work. Here's an update to share anyways . . .
I became so disenchanted with this piece, that I decided to move on to a different design. This is my new start, Barnyard by Bent Creek, a gift from Elisa a while back. It's a simple design, I pulled out my own thread choices from my Anchor box and got stuck in. I must say, I'm truly enjoying stitching this one, it's coming together quite quickly.
I think another reason I lost my stitching mojo for a bit was because I didn't have all of my stitching essentials with me. I went to grab my scissors to cut some fabric for Barnyard, before realising I didn't pack them! But this won't be the case for much longer. My parents are visiting at the end of the month and offered to bring some of my stuff down with them. This will make it easier for when I eventually move out into a more permanent residence. I am going to send them a list, and my stitching chest and sewing machine are going to be high up on that list! I'm missing my machine more than I thought I would, it's such a handy thing to have around. Hopefully we won't be apart for much longer :)
I hope you've all had a wonderful start to the week, despite the changeable weather :)
