WOYWW 148

Okaaaay ... not my usual messy papercrafting worktop at all this week as I've had a good tidy-away of all that until after Easter as we will be away and I do like to leave the place kinda, sorta tidy!
So am busily preparing my next cross-stitch project to take with me and here are the goodies that arrived yesterday but, of course, it entails decisions, decisions and I am hopeless at them!




The design is supposed to be stitched on the darker piece of fabric but I am not at all sure I quite like the colour but do realise that this is the colour the designer chose so probably should go with the flow ... I ordered the lighter piece of fabric to give me the option.  Will get them both out in the daylight and decide ... hopefully.
Short and sweet this week as I need to be doing 101 other things ... had planned a few peaceful and quiet hours cross-stitching my current project but it is a gift for eldest nephew and he just turned up, raided the cupboards, fired up his laptop and so will be here for a good while yet so no secret sewing.
Best thing today is to pop to see all the so much more interesting workdesks than mine and you can find these at Julia's Stamping Ground HERE

  7. Thanks for visiting me :) - all I can say is that I did a Bothy Cut Thru Rocket cross stitch on a dark fabric and it was really difficult - hurt my eyes so it took ages, I have heard that you should put a piece of white paper/fabric under it whilst sewing on a dark colour but I couldnt figure out how to hold all that together! Enjoy your break. Sunshine Girl no. 57

  14. I prefer the paler fabric too, but you need really good daylight to decide for certain. Have a good time at Eastnor, and give everyone our love. Hopefully we will meet up with them later in the year. xx Maggie #9
