Stitching again

A few months ago I started cross stitching again. I finished a Teresa Wentzler kit that I'd had for years (I can't show you the finished piece as it's in a box on the sea!), and started another.

This is Tradewinds. It was another kit that I got ages ago and I have no idea where it came from - ebay I suspect.


It's the only stitching I have with me, which is a bit of a shame as my stitching mojo is back full force for the first time in about 5 years!


Because it's a Teresa Wentzler there are a lot of blended colours and some over one bits too, so hopefully it'll keep me quiet until the rest of my craft stash arrives.


I'm working on the sails in the daytime when the light is good, and I'm doing back stitching at night (the lights in our living area are a bit dim for stitching).


It's looking a bit creased - the iron is also on the sea in a box! I hope you like it as I'm going to be showing you a lot of it over the next month...

  4. Just awesome! Both the stitching and seeing you blogging again :D I have to admit I pulled this one out myself to start a TW SAL on that FB group, but dickered and dickered and couldn't make a decision which one to start ... so I started none! haha. I bought this as a kit too, and I've been trying to start stitch that I've spent 'extra' money on as a priority - seeing yours (and Dani's finished one) just may spur me on to start at some point in the near future! :D

  7. It's great your stitching mojo has returned Nicki, and this is a great project, one of my favourite TW's I stitched several years back now. Hope you're enjoying some sunshine up your way this week after all that rain!!
