Having finished my daughters name sampler, and then delighting in getting it framed for a bargainous £40 (including a solid oak frame and non-reflective glass), I’ve now found myself at a bit of a stitching loose end.
Well I say loose end, I mean I’m only currently working on two different cross-stitches. One is the cat picture I started when I was heavily pregnant, which is stitched on aida fabric (very defined square blocks),
the other is the ABC’s of Parenting which is stitched on linen (non-defined squares where you need a hoop to stitch).
I’m switching back and forth between the two depending on how much thinking I want to be doing about the stitching, the linen demands much more brain power!
But I’m still thinking about other designs I fancy stitching, and regularly keep adding things to various online shopping baskets.
Top of my list is this exploding TARDIS cross-stitch pattern.
I loved this particular Doctor Who episode and since I’ve already stitched a version of The Starry Night it would be lovely to have this alongside it.
Now I just need to arrange for those extra two hours a day and extra day a week so that I can get all my non-stitchy projects done… oh, and then there’s housework…
