On my hoop....

At the moment I am stitching a gorgeous cute design by The Stitching Shed, they are a company based very locally to me in Morecambe. I love their style and am really enjoying stitching this piece. I'd not heard of this company before, at our crop we do a Christmas swap where all our names are put into a hat (or maybe it was more like a scrapping bin, LOL!) My sister in law, Karin, attends the crop too and she'd drawn me (interestingly I drew Karin and also bought her a cross stitch kit!) Anyway, she knew I was intending to do a beachy theme in the children's shower room and thought this would be nice in there. It's perfect! I love the colours and it's so cheerful! When it's finished I'm going to pick out one of the colours for the walls and inspire the room around the cross stitch This is what it will look like finished.

I am still stitching away at the owls These are fun to do every month and I can't believe we are at April already! Only 2 to go! April's owl is just waiting for her eyes, we ran out of thread so I will buy some in the next couple of days to finish her off and then start May's!


  1. Your stitchery projects are wonderful!!! I love the owls on the linen!!! I used to do a ton of it. I haven't touched it much in the last handful of years. I should really pull it back out again. But, with DT work and other projects going on at home, it probably will not happen any time soon. Here is a link to a few of my started projects...

  2. The lighthouse is looking fabulous, love those colours - Karin picked a brilliant kit for you. Must catch up with my owl :o your girls are looking great :D
