There we found a wonderful yarn shop called the fibreworks where I treated myself to some lovely new aluminium crochet hooks and some more red yarn for my rainbow cushion.
we then drove a little further down the hill to a wonderful antiques centre where my dad very kindly paid for ( I will be paying him back) a cross stitch sampler that was stitched in 1822!!
I don't have pictures yet as it's still bubble-wrapped up waiting to go up on the wall.
In the evening I started the front of my rainbow cushion, I got quite far as well, only 6 rounds to go and it'll be finished.
Today I worked on Super Mario and I am happy to say that pages 1 & 2 are finally finished!! It's only taken two years! Seeing as my goal for this piece was to finish page 2 this month I have reset my target to stitching half of page 3.
Plans for this week are:
- continue with Super Mario
- finish rainbow cushion
- finish baby blanket
- start March Stamp flip it
I'll hopefully get some pictures of my new sampler & my february finishes posted up tomorrow,
