I seem to be in a bit of a cross stitch phase again. I usually do an annual cross stitch in the summer, just a little one, but it’s continuing at the moment. I have another little kit lined up too. It’s the better light levels, and the fact it’s not a hot, heavy wooly thing during warm weather.
The last is a pot holder in progress, from Hook, Stitch and Crochet by clever clogs Kat Goldin. I watched Bridesmaids (again) and chortled away while I stitched last night. It’s a bit homespun but fun to do.
I’ve found out why WordPress seemed to take against Mum’s William Morris curtains so…after nearly four years I’ve finally used up all the free capacity and had to pay to go premium. I quite like having the shorter domain, TheLittleRoomofRachell.com sounds snazzy, but I might sell a blanket or few to go towards the cost.
I’m off to rejig that blanket post. I can now add all the photos I wanted to include the first time, before it kept telling me I’d failed.
I’ve got a couple of cross stitch items to do but bigger stitches. My eyes would never cope with stitches that small. Especially like the first one, very pretty!
You can get magnifiers that sit on your chest, or which see on stands, and would probably help with the tiny stitches.
Having been shown such a thing only yesterday, I was wondering about getting one of them for my larger stitches! You just can’t imagine how much worse eyesight gets when you get to my age.
Loving the cross stitch. I just delete old posts and photos and keep going for free on WordPress! Probably not what is intended!
Thank you, they’re absorbing to do.
I can’t bring myself to do that as I like the idea of looking back sometime, though I never actually have – only to link to older posts!
Nice cross stitch. You remind me I have this Hello Kitty one that been sitting around for ages. I learned if I reduce the pixels of pictures before uploading them to my site (600), it’ll take longer to max out my storage space.
