I dug down deep into my stash for a new start last week. I've had this chart for so long I can't remember when I bought it or where from. It contains two of my favourite things to stitch, alphabets and houses, so goodness knows why it's taken me so long to get round to it.
I'm using 28 count vintage country mocha and the recommended threads, so how come my colours look nothing whatsoever like the picture???
I'm a bit disappointed to be honest, I mean, you know there is going to be some colour change in the photos, but this is just nothing like! I know I could have gone back through my threads and pulled out some that look more like on the picture but once I'd started I just didn't want to go in search all over again and I still like it despite the difference.
Something else that was buried deep in my stash, a little stack of mini solid granny squares.
There were just enough to make Bonnie a blanket for her dolls bed.
I haven't been buying much in the way of charts or yarn this year but I treated myself to a Red Work stitchery last week after seeing Katrina's post on IG.
I've never done one before but have always admired Katrina's work when she shows them on her blog. Can't wait to get started on this :-)
This particular one comes with the design already printed on the fabric, so all I need to do is sort out the thread.
We've had lots of time sitting in the garden this week, making the most of the beautiful weather while we can. I'm happy with how the garden is looking at the moment, I've put the cosmos in this week and still have the zinnias to do, hopefully between them they will give us some lovely colour over the summer.
The roses are just starting to appear, not many white ones on the climber just yet but the others are doing well.
Have a lovely week.
