It's still all about cross stitch here in Loulee land. I keep going in to my room and poking about, then leaving without doing anything. The call of the cross stitch seems to be loud at the moment, so that is what I'm working on. I'm nearing the top of the page so almost a third of the way done with St Nick.
Teddy now has a tiny horse to keep him company.
One thing I did do while in my room yesterday was kit up a quick stitch project. When I was sorting through my stash of aida fabrics to find just the right piece, I came across an old finished project. I stitched these two quilting mice about 25-30 years ago, long before I started blogging.
I did an amateur job of framing them and gave them to my mum. After she had hung them on the wall I realised that I had made a huge mistake! The mouse on the right has lots of black stitches where she should have grey stitches.
There were also one or two other areas where black should not have been used.
When we were packing up to immigrate I discovered that my framing job was falling apart, so pulled them out of the frame and packed them away safely with my cross stitch fabrics collection.
And yesterday they spoke to me, I have unpicked the mistakes and just need to find the correct shade of grey to fix them up, then I'll refinish them. A job for another day as I was keen to make a start on the quick project that I had just kitted.
Can you tell what it is yet?
Friends of ours have just discovered The Mandalorian, one of the star wars spin off series.
She is particularly fond of Grogu. (A baby Yoda). So I couldn't resist doing this piece when I came across the chart on Pinterest.
If anyone is looking for me today, I'll be in my comfy chair, stitching the day away.
I hope to have a finish very soon.
