I have to say that I sometimes wonder why I cross stitch. I have had a terrible week with Retro Lady - not enough stitching time and what I did do I had to unpick again. It is obvious I can't count and I can't follow a pattern even though I do highlight my working copy as I go along. So here is this week's pitiful progress. I do find I am struggling with the colour chart so will carry on this week and if I do still struggle at night, when I do most of my stitching, I will swap to my Vervaco lady until the summer when the nights are longer as hopefully this will help with the reading of the charts.
On a brighter note I did manage another ornament finish. It is a Blackbird Designs design called Floral Gift from the JCS magazine 2010 Christmas Special. I didn't stitch the border and changed the year for another bird. I haven't decided how I am going to finish this yet.
Stitched on 32ct Antique White Jobelan
using DMC Threads
When I finished this ornament Sunday Evening I tried to pick another one but every ornament I picked up I was at least one or two threads missing so I am off now to try a new LNS which provides the threads already on bobbins, yay.
Until next time, happy stitching
