Now for a bit of a stitching update. It looks like I'm turning into a bit of a 'rotation stitcher' as I now have 4 pieces on the go, and am planning (and stashing) many more! Don't know yet whether or not this is a good thing.
Anyway, here's Nan to start with. Is it me, or is her shawl just really boring to stitch?
The dinosaurs have joined me at work as I was looking for something to do at lunchtime other than yet more Internet surfing.
Then one evening when I was really bored with Nan, I started work on some dragons included in the Dragon's Faire booklet from Cross My Heart. I'm planning the 4 seasonal dragons on the dark background shown on the front. However, I probably haven't managed more than 30 mins on this because of my next project!
Finally, the school year is coming to an end here in the UK, so I was looking for a small gift for my son's teachers. I cam across the following design in New Stitches magazine (no. 155) and I thought they would make nice cards/gifts.
