Sunday Stitching

I had a lovely weekend of stitching, when I know I should of been doing other things... like say cleaning the house, doing some exercise, you know mundane things like that. This afternoon I went into town and stitched with my friend Manon. We've not gotten together in a long time, so it was nice to settle in for an afternoon of stitching!


When I got there Manon had a lovely gift for me! This gorgeous red scarf! She knitted it just for me and I look forward to dressing up my favourite jeans and black top in the near future with this pretty!

Before heading out to stitch, I of course stitched a little bit at home. I started my next ornament on 40ct linen. This is my start on Damask Ornament B, this time in Gloriana Cranberry. It'll be gorgeous when finished. I didn't work on it at Manon's as I want to be settled in at home in my stitching chair under my Ott-Lite when working on something so small.


For the rest of the afternoon and into this evening I really enjoyed pulling out this gem, Blackstone Fantasy Garden from Ink Circles. I haven't touched this piece since September! I look forward to working on this piece again sometime!
