I am currently on holidays at the "Top End" of Australia which is the opposite end of the country to where I live. That basically means three things- more time, warm weather and crocodiles(!). I'm sitting in bed with my coffee staring at the vibrant port of Darwin with the air con on. I have been swimming almost daily which I haven't done in decades. I feel alive!
My needles have still been running hot over the last few months despite my blog slackness. I will update you over the next few days. Here is my first finish. This is Little House Needleworks "Hope". I have converted the wording to say my name as I will make it into a Christmas tree ornament. I plan to have a personalised ornament for all my crew by this festive season.
This is stitched two over two 32ct raw linen. I used my own picks for threads using Weeks Dyeworks cottons, DMC, Whisper in white (for sheep) and Rainbow Treasure braid (for snowflake and snow).
