Another square complete and April's TUSAL

Well well well..two updates in a week!!

I finished another square on my 12 Days of Christmas. Only 6 more squares to go before I can stitch the border and add all the beads.

I'm unsure of which square I want to stitch next. So far I have completed Partridge in a Pear Tree, Two Turtle Doves, Three French Hens, Four Calling Birds, Five Gold Rings and Seven Swans A Swimming.

My TUSAL jar is full of threads this time around from stitching my 12 Days of Christmas and also an exchange piece (can't show it yet as I've not fully finished it and I'm awaiting partner details to send it).

Well, hopefully I will have an update for you all next week (maybe another completed square) but until then I hope you all keep safe and have fun crafting.

It's been a little while

Well hello everyone!!! I can't believe it has been near on a month since I last posted.

I have been stitching some though and have managed to finish another part of 12 days of Christmas.

Since my last update, I spent my stitching time working on the 'A Partridge in a Pear Tree' section and I'm now pleased to say it is finished.

The wording on this square drove me potty though and I ended up completely unpicking it three times lol.

If you have noticed, there a few little white spaces dotted around the whole of the design, these little spaces are for gold beads to go once I've finished all the stitching on it.

Well I am hoping to have a lovely little selection of orts to show you all onWednesday.

Until then, I hope that you are all enjoying the little bit of rare sunshine that we are currently getting.
