Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

…I’m not quite sure how much stitching I’m going to get done.

I’ve started another cross stitch card which doesn’t need much stitching to be finished


The caption on this is going to be ‘Sent with Love’, so it can be sent to anyone πŸ™‚ However, I’ve got a bike training day on Saturday, and my PhD work is getting rather frantic, so my Sunday will probably be spent working…We shall see.

Also, I’m in Oxford for a few days, and I’ve found a few yarn shops to visit tomorrow. I wonder how much I’ll spend…I always need more sock yarn πŸ™‚

  1. Is that a scroll frame? Do you like it?
    I don’t love any of my cross stitch hoop options. I’ve broken multiple Q-snap clips and the plastic hoops always get dirty…

    I’m wondering if a scroll frame keeps good, even tension?

    • Yes, it is a scroll frame. I find that one side is always tighter than the other side- it’s almost impossible to sew(squeeze between two rods for my mini) the fabric on perfectly straight. However, I don’t think it matters that much- nothing’s perfect. I still like using my hoop for some things, but for others a scroll frame makes more sense. I absolutely love my scroll frames, and this one is so small it’s perfect for small things like cards πŸ™‚

  2. From my experience, it’s always more fun to work on your crafts than your PhD . . .

  3. Pretty design πŸ™‚

  4. Lovely!! Love the whimsical quality of the tulips πŸ™‚ Oh, poor you. Oxford.
