I have made a start on Winter Watergarden, I am stitching on 32dpi linen as shown in the design, I have to stitch over two stitches, I have never done this before, normally I would scale the design down and make it half the size, but this has beads on, so I am doing as the pattern tells me. I love the shades of blue, it's not a colour I use alot. The balance of this pattern makes it easy to stitch.
I had a parcel in the post, the three packets below I brought off e-bay, they were a bargain, I love green backgrounds, and have a project in mind for the darker green, but that's later this year.
Yesterday when I was out the post man called and left a card, I have two parcels waiting for collection at the sorting office, one will be my q-snap frame, not sure what the other will be. I am going to collect them later.
The new project above is my second Tigerskin rug, I have done the marking on the head. I do like to take stitching with me, but larger projects I leave at home. I have not done any more to family sampler, I am looking for a Thomas the Tank Engine pattern small enough to go it, Josh asked me if I could sew one there for him. As for sleeping cat's that's on the back burner for now.
