Cut Thru' updates...

I have not had as much stitching time as I would like over the last three days.  I am on holidays from work so have been decluttering the garage and house getting ready for a market. It's a horrible, dusty job but will be so satisfying at the end of it.

Ahoy there me hearties! Last night was Pirate Wednesday so I stitched my ginger-bearded pirate some boots and gave him some deck to fight on.

I have tried to finish off the fourth page of my Cut Thru' castle but have had to frog the little man on the ladder twice! Let's hope I can finish it soon. I am very keen to start the fifth page.

Until next time, happy stitching…

Decluttering just takes a lot of time, doesn't it? But you made some very nice progress on your Cut Through projects. I always love to see the little details on them.

The backstitch certainly bring these to life. Your little pirate makes me giggle when I see him... and dream of Jack Sparrow! lol

I love seeing your updates of these Cut Thru designs! They really have such bright, appealing colors -- and the details are fantastic. Keep up the great work and happy stitching (and cleaning - yechh).

You made great progress on the pirate! I stitched the other pirate so he had someone to fight with. The colours are so bright.
