All moved in and ready to craft
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!
See? They were quickly wound into bobbins (another job which really must get done ASAP, before it gets shunted onto the back burner!)
Hope you’re all being productively crafty 🙂
