That Time Again

That Time Again

It’s that time of year again where my stitching spot in the window gets too cold for me to sit comfortably for hours on end.  While I was making some good progress on Computer Catastrophes a pesky draught was leaving me with sore shoulders.  For now I have had to admit defeat and move to the relative warmth of the sofa which isn’t very comfortable for sitting at my frame.

And it’s really annoying because I really want to work on Computer Catastrophes.  I have to stitch something though (or knit) because I really don’t like sitting around with nothing to be getting on with, so I’ve been working away at page 2 on QS Arthur.

He is my tent stitch experiment piece I’m working using q-snaps and I really like how he’s working up at the moment.  There’s so much confetti in him that I don’t feel any faster but I whizzed through those blocks of colour in the background.

He’s so bright and colourful too, just what I need as winter sets in.  Page 3 is really quite small and mostly background blocks but I’ve been distracted by something else for now that I hope to share soon

    He’s lovely, and am sure you’ll be addicted to him by the time the warmed weather comes back round!

    Lovely progress on Arthur! I’ve been stitching a mini HAED tent stitch on the same fabric, and I’m just loving it. 🙂
