After a couple of small jobs the day was mine so I started by cutting some of my scraps into useful sized pieces. This was some of my fabric for child related projects. I have a pattern in mind but there is still lots of cutting involved. I love the pirate and the 'wild thing' fabric. Oh dear I must take some time out to give my cutting mat a little tender loving care.
I must admit to spending lots of time stroking my fabric stash and trying to reach a decision as to which new project to start. So many choices!
After dinner it was time to settled down to some hand stitching and this week I have been working on my Catitude cross stitch. I managed to finish up the cat's tail and add the back stitching. I'm pleased with the way it is coming. The fabric is all creased as I had just removed it from the embroidery hoop. The tail is all stitched so the white parts are actually white cross stitches
At least I have done over half of it. I'm hoping I really will finish it this year. I'm going to try and finish the section in the centre at the bottom, Discovery of the New World. There isn't much left to do on this except the back stitching so I should be able to start on the next square or do some more of the back stitching on the scrolls.
Alternating the pieces should mean that I continue to enjoy working on the pieces and so I will get them finished more quickly.
I'm linking this post with Slow Sunday Stitching over at Kathy's Quilts.
I hope you had a chance to enjoy some stitching time today.
