The Start of Something Big...


This is the beautiful cross-stitch that my friend Sharon gave me for Christmas, I have an applique quilt with the same design which is gorgeous as well......


the above corner is what I stitched New Year's Day...
the pattern instructions had you start in the top left hand corner which is different for me I usually start in the centre so it will be interesting to see how it progress'......

this is what I have done so far, it seems to be growing quite quickly, the fact that I try and stitch a thread a day is helping, although I have missed a few days here and there.....

this is the applique block that I am trying to finish before the end of January.....it is block one in the Floral Hopscotch BOM from the Fragrant Cottage from 2010...... 
I have been way-laid stitching a couple of needle-cases, 
which I am really enjoying making...... so I might have to finish this block by the end of February......



and I have joined up with the OPAM girls again for 2011... so I better go and write my to do list........

I have a weakness for cross stitch, what a lovely pattern.
