Friday Night With Friends - Cross Stitch

Good morning everyone.

I hope you are all well.

On Friday evening I  joined in with like minded crafter's from around the world who get together (virtually) that is.....on the first Friday of the month to do a spot of knitting, sewing, crocheting etc....whatever craftiness you choose....



This month I decided to make a start on 

The Holly Fairy



I have had this project ready for ages and thought it was time to make a start...I bought the beautiful variegated hand dyed linen ages ago specifically for this piece at The Harrogate Knitting And Stitching Show.


So here goes...



And this is where I got up to...




Not much I know but at least it's a start.

I continue to be good and stick to the policy of little and often given that I have just returned to work after six month's off with my neck problem. 

As for work I have been back about a month now and I am easing in slowly, keeping up with my exercises, hot stone massage and physio and so far all seems to be going well....I know I will just have to be sensible.....

I'm so pleased that I made the effort to join in again this month and also managed to get something done....I will definitely be taking part again next month.....the dates already in my diary.

Now I can spend a bit of time having a look at what everyone else was doing.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Enjoy the rest of your day.


And 


Happy Mother's Day 


To all the lovely mums in the UK today.

How lovely that multi coloured linen is, I don't think I have ever seen anything like it.My days of cross stitch on linen are over now, eyes are only good for 14 count Aida.
Thank you for visiting me here in Cornwall.

Beautiful new stitching start! :D

Slow and steady. Looks good so far and cross stitch is a real exercise in patience so, I think you've done quite a bit for one sitting.
