Slowly does it

Slowly, slowly.... Another band or so on the stocking...


It's starting to come together.


And almost there on block 3 of Shores...


If I want to finish this block this month I need to get a move on! There's a lot of stitching in this one.


It's been pretty wet this week, so no gardening. And no real news on the allotment front yet either. Just waiting for the paperwork to be signed and trying to decide what to grow! We're now splitting it into three so we have a bit each rather than sharing everything. This has its pros and cons and I have to decide whether to just do something simple that takes up space - like potatoes - or a mixture of stuff.

  2. Both pieces are looking lovely! I actually stitched a bit on my stocking last week, but not really enough to make it worth taking a picture, sadly. I think it's going to be a very long-term WIP...

  6. Hi, your blog is beautiful. Love the sidebar photos of your cats! I have all of the Hawk Run Hollow series, but haven't the nerve to start any of them yet. I have done two of their stockings though. Your work is so pretty. No gardening here either.....rain again.

  8. I do love this stocking. Everytime I see an update from you I want to pull it out and work on it. Well, I did pull the chart, but haven't gotten any further than that, but your posts push me closer each time.

    And your Shores is looking wonderful too!

  12. Lovely work on both WIPs - I know, that block seems to take forever (particularly the huge white house), but you're almost there!
