no I'm not cross at you


Really I'm not .
I was just going to pop a post up to explain my absence
but a post without a photo is even more dull than my
my blog at the moment .


So because I was going to tell you I wasn't cross I thought
I'd show you some of my very old cross stitches .
I haven't done any for so long and I really use to enjoy doing them .


I don't think my eyes or my patience could manage it anymore .

Are there things that you were very enthusiastic about but aren't any more ?


Anyway now you know I'm still around .

My daughter who has been home sick for two weeks goes
back to school tomorrow and I'm finalising a few things here .
As always family need to come first .

I'd love to have some more recent crafty stuff to show you
but it's either secret or non - existent .

Thanks for sticking around .

I appreciate it .

I would really love to do a sampler on linen one day but don't think my eyes could cope. Love your hankie curtain from the previous post.

I really like your blog and I have on my list.
The small frames are perfect, especially the one with the window is like on a Greek island.
Greetings from Greece.

I use to cross stitch too. Have some lovely large ones hanging in my house still. But yes, eyes and patience have both gotten a bit dull. Also knitting, sewing, crewel, beading and I don;t even remember what else I have tried. The main thing is that I need something creative to do.

Lovely cross stitch. I used to cross stitch also but set it aside for now. I think I've dabbled in almost everything and now I'm into collecting vintage treasures and decorating with them.
