  • Another Page Finished October 31, 2010

    Sometimes it really surprises me how quickly I can stitch.  Of course it feels like it’s taking an age when your stitching and trying to get the page finished but two weeks to finish a full size page is quick ...

    So there isn’t much actual train to see yet apart from the lantern and a little blue bit in the corner near it but it feels like I’ve got lots done this week – 3200 stitches actually which is really ...

  • New frames and framing pictures March 15, 2010

    Some good news this week I finally framed Woodland Enchantress.  I found a place online which had just the type of frame I wanted which was a relief after the local framer I used closed down and relocated out of ...
