Noah's Ark cross stitch coming along...


Noah's ark has reached new heights! I have very nearly finished the roof and outlined some darling little birds.  Can you spot the clouds as well? They are new too. If you want to see progress from my last post you can find it here

Such a fun stitch.  It's lovely to watch Noah's paired animals come to life.

Next up is to outline the kangaroos which have been in plague proportions in my garden over the last week.  Poor them, as I have fixed my electric gates and they can now only look into my garden from the outside. My plants are happy for the reprieve from their munching teeth.

Tonight I have linked my post to Handmade Monday at the crafty blog Handmade Harbour.

Thanks for visiting my garden. I hope you found stitching time recently like me...

Nice progress on your stitching Jan! Amazing to see that kangaroos are coming so close to your home! I have a friend who lives in Australia & she has quite a bit of land with a kind of water pond or reservoir on it. She is forever sending pix of the kangaroos!! It's so sweet! All I have in my back garden in UK is the cat's neighbour thinking it's ok to use it as a toilet :D

Oh, it's looking so great! And lucky you, having kangaroo visitors! The only visitors I seem to get are curious pigeons :P

Hi Jan, it's a lovely cross stich design you are doing and you are so patient with the intricate pattern. I love kangaroos - they were the highlight of our trip a few years ago to Australia. I wish you a great week!

Nothing as exotic as kangaroos here - I'm just having trouble with the sheep coming down off the moor!
Noah's Ark is looking good :)
