My finished cross stitch.

This is my latest cross stitch.I hadn't done any cross stitch for quite a long time so when I discovered this,half done,I decided to give it a go.I am thrilled I can still see to do it.Threading the needle is a tad trickier but I have now got some needle threaders so that should help.Now I just need a frame.I really enjoyed doing it.
My next project is a Blackwork sunflower.It is much bigger than I thought.(I am not very good with centimetres.Oops.) and it does look quite complicated but I enjoy a challenge.I am also knitting a top down jumper and I am so bored with it.Row after row,round after round,but it is good for doing watching TV.
I have just planted 50 freesia bulbs that came free with an order.I did it half heartedly because they felt a bit soft and also how long will it take the squirrels to find them.Watch this space.
OH is at band practice with his ukulele.We shall stay off the roads this Bank Holiday weekend as everyone will be rushing to the coast or the mountains.Plenty of time for crafting.Have a good one.Barbara

  1. Love the Owls. I used to cross stitch many years ago. I will stick to painting!

  3. That's fabulous, it will look lovely in a frame. It's a while since I did any cross stitch, I should get back to it.

  4. It's really adorable and I love owls! Good luck with the sunflower project. Hope the freesias do well - squirrels certainly love many bulbs but thankfully not daffodils.
    We're just back from England and noticed how the traffic seems heavier than ever. We don't drive there any longer - on the wrong side of the road, haha! - and everyone moving along so fast is often scary.
    Off to Ireland in a few days - two Atlantic crossings in such a short time will have my 'clock' somewhat off kilter, but at least Ireland will be cool and I'm sure wet - we're having such a heatwave here!

    Happy weekend, Mary

  9. Lovely owls. I simply don't have the same patience as you to attempt something like this.

  11. That's beautiful well done on getting it finished, I have lots of unfinished cross stitch projects lying around, I find it so hard on the eyes now. I have just planted some free freesia bulbs too it must be the same company as mine felt soft too but we will see. xx
