The First Stitches of 2016!

Hi everyone!

I guess most people are back to reality today, looking at all the depressing posts on Facebook this morning it certainly seems so anyway! Thankfully, today is a bank holiday in Scotland so one more day before the routine returns.

I had a good stitching session over the weekend - I sat, watched the BBC Pride and Prejudice and stitched away on my New Year, New Start project.


This is my Fallout Wedding Sampler for me and David, I have to say I am loving it so far! My first time using 28 count fabric and stitching over two and I must admit I am finding it very enjoyable and easier than I thought it would.

I'm enjoying this so much I'll be continuing with it for now.

Until next time!
