Stitching again

 Almost finished
just the words in the bottom hearts
I am using my own words, our location in one and the year in the other
 I am loving the cup with flowers in
 I have shown you this book before, I love almost every design inside
 I stitched this design once before on a small scale
I am now thinking it would make a nice cushion cover
I will have to place an order for the silks.
Paella, bubbling in the pan
I don't cook very often, but I love making and eating this dish.
plus leftover for lunch today. 
I love stitching so you cover the whole canvas, and it looks like fine material, plus my desire for a big project, I think this will tick all the boxes. I did look at Christmas designs, but can't get in to festive stitching in August. I have finished reading both books, A Little Strange was the least favourite book out of the three I have read by Sarah Walters.
I have not been in the garden, we have had rain for a few days, so it's looking after itself, plus I am now planning to work in out front garden. Like so many other front gardens it's parking space for both or cars, there is coloured pebbles down (which I hate) but it would be a waste to remove them at this point, but the small gardens could look better.
Soon it will be the weekend again, we are home again but doing normal weekend things, catching up with both daughter, plus Josh and Sam will be home from Grandma's, and I can't wait to see them both.


  1. Your white stitching is lovely. I've already started my Christmas stitching I rather like it at this time of year x

  2. Your stitching is looking beautiful. Your paella looks tasty too.

  3. I can't wait to see your full piece. I don't think I've the patience for it. Stitching the bears'eyes and noses is enough for me!

  4. I love paella but I'm the only one here who does so I've never made it myself. Your stitching is lovely and I think personalising it that way is a great idea.

  5. Your stitching is beautiful - you must have a lot of patience! I like the cream and white combination. That paella looks good too!

  6. Your stitching looks lovely. Enjoy those grandsons!

  7. I'm going to get on the internet and see if I can track down that lovely needlepoint book. I am just finishing a needlepoint 'band sampler' (which I designed from a few Florentine designs and some cross stitch techniques). I love working with silks on canvas! Jx

  8. Your whitework stitching looks super as does your paella.
