Cross-Stitch Progress Week 6

I was meant to post this yesterday but the day flew by and I didn't manage it. What with walking in the morning, cleaning the house and pancake day I found myself struggling for any more time for the blog. I did, however, manage to get some editing on the book done so it wasn't a terrible day.

As you can see more progress has been made, I think I've done more this week because the hubby has been working in the evenings and this gives me a chance to get on with the cross-stitch. The flowers within the hedges are in and I've moved onto the sky. I think it's really lovely that the whole thing incorporates loads of different colours, it makes it much more interesting to stitch.

Week 5
Week 6

The surprising thing about cross-stitch is the amount of time needed to get it done. This week I must have spent at least four hours on it and there's only a little progress. I put this down to changing threads constantly and not wanting to make mistakes. I tend to unpick any mistakes I make and then have to restitch the whole thing, it can be very time-consuming. The best bit is that even when I feel like I'm not achieving anything in any other part of my life I can look at the two photos above and see I've made progress there. I'm creating something and that makes me smile.


  1. I love the colour of that sky, beautiful! And I know what mean about the sense of accomplishment the photos showing your progress bring.

    1. It is beautiful isn't it, the next bit is me adding some shiny thread! Hopefully it will sparkle just like it's supposed to!
