Hello lovely readers,
If you celebrate Christmas, I hope it was fabulous. My Christmas was busy (my knees feel the pain today from standing in the kitchen for hours) but it was enjoyable. Now to the fun part of the year - Summer school holidays. Mind you, I am still working but at least not doing all of the usual stuff related to being a mum (which mostly involves taxiing children to and fro).
I started my a Heaven and Earth Design (HAED) on December 1st as part of a stitch along (SAL) with a Facebook group. There were no other SAL rules apart from starting December 1st. I chose a mini HAED called 'Mini Alice and Snow White'. It is tent stitched (only half crosses) on 25ct Magic Evenweave using 2 strands of DMC floss over 1.
I am thoroughly loving stitching this! How refreshing to stitch on something different. I have stitched about 1600 stitches. I am using a parking method I learnt from a YouTube channel by the delightful "Carolyn Mazzeo". Check out her parking video if you want to find out who she parks.
Great excitement yesterday as my gorgeous hubby surprised me with a mini-iPad. I am going to use it as my pattern guide. I mostly use PDF patterns but instead of printing them I can read, enlarge and highlight on my iPad using an app. It is working so well and I have only been using it for an hour today.
I have posted a video on my YouTube channel showing how I started the HAED on December 1st. If you are interested in Heaven and Earth Designs you might like to see my fun.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have fun in stitches...
