Weekend Stitching Progress

Good Morning to you all!!

It has been rather chilly in the mornings these last few days, and dare I say that I can feel the winter creeping in.

I have a few updates for you now on the stitching front from over the weekend.

On Friday night, I popped into Asda and purchased a copy of The World of Cross Stitching and I'm blogger of the month :)

Here is the piece in the magazine:

I have to say that I am over the moon, but also curious. How do they choose a blogger of the month is?

I also received on Friday the new bookazine "The Ultimate Forest Friends Cross Stitch Collection". I just love these bookazines.

On Sunday morning, I picked up my TUSAL jar and the thing just smashed in my hand. So I had to hunt around for a new one. I decided on a large candle jar that had not long run out and the remaining wax wouldn't light, so had hubby clean it out. Here it is looking ship shape and shiny with its new contents:

This is a Yankee Candle and I have to say they smell absolutely delicious. The big ones (like this) cost around £13 each but burn for weeks.

Now I'm going to show you my actual stitching progress.  On Friday, I didn't really manage all that much stitching on Day 6, so here is how '6 Geese-A-Laying' is looking:

All that is left to do really is the eggs, some more blue for the sky and the backstitch. I'm definitely hoping to have this completed today.

For my weekend project, Moon Goddess came out to play. She has been yelling at me for a while but I kept ignoring until Saturday. I didn't get to stitch throughout the daytime as it was my little boy's 6th birthday, so spent the day with him :)

I managed to put in a total of 755 stitches :)

Well those are all my updates for the weekend. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and kept warm wherever you all are :)

Until next time



  1. Congrats for coming in the mag...well done

  2. Love your projects. Looks like you enjoy stitching Joan Elliott pieces. I do also. I have completed a few and have a bunch more in my stash.

    1. I do love them. There is something magical about them :) xxx

  3. Congrats on being blogger of the month. What an honor. Great progress on both pieces.


  4. Congrats on being in the mag. Great progress and love that new bookazine:)

  5. Found your blog through a mutual friend. Nice to be here! How cool to be 'blogger of the month'. Great stitching.

  6. Congratulations on being Blogger of the Month! I was so excited when they picked me a few months ago, too! I love your 12 Days of Christmas design. Moon Goddess looks amazing.

  7. I knew it was you as soon as I saw the bit in the mag! I don't know how they choose but several people I know have been chosen so I think they must look down the sidebars and pick out articles they like the look of.
    They choose people from all across the world too, not just the UK.


Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I do love to read them :) xxx
