So I’m moved in up at York. I’ve started crocheting (finally!), so here’s a photo of my progress so far
It’s from a crochet kit called Bruno. However, I think he looks more like an Alex, so that’s what I’m calling mine 🙂 I’m hoping it will be finished in time for Christmas, as the plan is to give him away as a Christmas present. Fingers crossed it gets done in time!
Speaking of Christmas presents, here’s an up to date photo of Frederick:
He’s soooo close to being finished. Well, cross stitch ways anyway. I think I’m procrastinating over this because of all that backstitching! I really need to knuckle down and do him one weekend, I think. What’s you’re method of dealing with back stitching? Usually I do it as I go along in bits and pieces, but because it uses even more blends, and different strands of thread I decided to leave it all until all the stitching was done. Which of course I now regret! I have decided to leave off the top shelf, so that means I have less to do. Anything for an easy life, eh? 😛
I also recently ordered some more threads, and they arrived this afternoon (in my new house, no less 🙂 ) Looking at this photo now, they’re all rather boring, with the exception of that red!
Hope you’re all being productively crafty 🙂
