About Me

My photo
I reside at the most Easterly point of England with my husband and two daughters and our cat. They are all incredibly supportive even if the crafting does take over the house from time to time. My favourite is cross-stitching which is closely followed by crochet although crocheting is a relatively new pastime!

Today is a new moon, that means it is time to share the 'Totally Useless Stitch A Long' or Tusal for short! My ORT jar happens to be a novelty skull shaped drinking glass and I'm hoping to end up with a very colourful creation.

If you would like to join in with this Tusal you can find all the details here or click on the Tusal image on the right-hand side of the screen.

Spooks, Sewing and Smiles.

Well, I have survived my first week in Blogland and I must say it has been fun discovering different blogs and meeting, (if that's the correct term?), some lovely people. Thank you all so much for the comments I have enjoyed reading them immensely and would like to apologise for not having the chance to reply. I've had a busy week this week but it hasn't stopped me from starting a new stitching project as well as achieving a page finish and picking up a whole new skill!

The new start is Spooky Countdown by The Primitive Hare.  Although the chart was first released in 2013 it is now being stitched as a stitch-a-long and has it's own group here and should finish around Halloween. I already have some catching up to do!


The second project for this week The Cheshire Cat by Mrs Peggotty's Arts - five pages finished and only thirteen pages to go. Every stitch of this has been thoroughly enjoyable so far but I'm a huge fan of her art and charts so I may be slightly bias!

I have always wanted to be able to use a sewing machine to create useful and pretty things and thanks to a lovely lady called Christina I finally can. Above is my first attempt at making a project folder/bag to keep my current stitches in one piece. It still needs a button and it isn't as straight as I would like but I am proud of it all the same.

The beginning of a new journey!

Hi all!
I hope this post finds you well - that is if I have done it right of course! I decided to create a blog in the hope of finding others who enjoy creating as much as me. This cross-stitch is an original design called The White Rabbit by Mrs Peggotty's Arts. This is my most favourite completed project so far this year so it only seemed right to share it with you.
