This week has been frustrating for me as I have had such an urge to just sit and stitch and stitch and stitch . . . but sadly life and my health has gotten in the way and I have not had as much stitching time as I would have liked . Still , I have made some progress on the Lavender Fairy.
The skirt is really fun to stitch but I felt it was time to move onto other parts of the chart too , so today I began stitching the fairy's green top. I hope to be able to stitch much much more next week , while I watch the Stanley Cup - playoffs and the IIHF Men's World Ice Hockey Championships . Yes , you've guessed it , I'm an avid sports fan as well as a dog-lover and a cross stitch addict : ))
I have managed to do some crochet . I'm making a poncho . . .
. . .using this free pattern. It's easy work for times when I cannot manage to concentrate on a cross stitch chart . This poncho is a gift and I am using acrylic yarns for this one, but I would also like to make a summer poncho for myself using soft cotton yarns in soft pastel colours. However , cotton yarns are expensive so it may never be more than a dream project . . .
Happy stitching everyone!
