Little House Needleworks Christmas ornament...

Yesterday I had stitching time during the day. That is a rarity. The reason was not so pleasant as Master Jack (12) had teeth extracted under a general anaesthetic. So while I was waiting for him to return from theatre and then recover in the hospital I stitched.


I took my new small project by Little House Needleworks "Bringing Home the Tree" to the hospital.  As you can see I am using some hand-dyed threads. I had no luck getting the recommended threads locally so did a colour match with ones I could access. As this is only a small project I justified the purchase of some specialty threads as I only needed four skeins. I now have to find some remaining DMC threads from my stash to finish the stitchery. I will post my colour changes on my blog when I have finished this.


I wish there was more stitching time during the day but I know I am not the only one wishing for that. Back to chasing Toddler Tom as he wreaks havoc on my clean house.

Thanks for meandering in my bit of the garden...

Love your new start Jan. Hope your son feels better real soon. Now I know the Noah's Ark your working on. I love that design. I think you will be hooked on the cut-thrus once you start working on one. Now go order that Gypsy Wagon.

Stitching is always good therapy in times of stress, i hope your little man is soon fully recovered.
