Friday Night Sew In results……

DSCF7403

Friday night saw me nibbling on dip and biscuits with copious amounts of coffee while adding a few more crosses to this cross stitch project I’ve just started, this will hopefully end up in the Christmas box and if I get my act together I may even get it finished before then lol……

Once my eyes started to go a bit cross eyed from the cross stitch I decided to add a few more stitches to another secret squirrel project, ( more full pic’s when my swap partner receives it later in the year) I love how this one is turning out and may just need to trace out another for me. I’ve used cream linen for the background and it is soooooo lovely to work with, the needle just glides through it.

Well I’d better make myself another cuppa and head off in a little bit to see what all the other ladies worked on last night with our virtual sew-in session in blog land, catch ya later…….

Cross stitch is so much harder on the eyes than stitchery. Both lovely projects, what's the purple CG thread?

I spy a Leanne Beasley secret squirrel there. Looking lovely. Your crossstitch is beautiful. Love the colour you are using. I must get back to crossstitch oneday and finish those half done. I am loving the French Provincial things around.
