glinda: dw sheep dreams of crochet (crochet sheep)
[personal profile] glinda posting in [community profile] cross_stitch
A while back my gran gave me a pile of cross-stich kits that she'd accumulated (she likes the idea of cross-stitching but neither her eye sight or her patience are up to it) and I've been working my way through them. Mostly giving them back to her as presents because...well they're usually her taste not mine. (I'd feel guilty if I didn't know she picked them up from charity shops) This is her birthday card this year!

Otherwise, I've really missed having a big project to make regular posts about, so I decided to make my mum a companion piece to her chickens from last year. It was actually the duck that she originally wanted but talked me out of making her because it was 'too big' (for me to make, not for her wall) which she now appreciates was a silly reason. Anyway, its proving just as enjoyable to stitch with its big shaping curves and colour blocks that make it look like the thing its supposed to be from early on that keeps me motivated. Hopefully between that and the weekly posts thing I'll get it done for silly season!

This is where I was last week, but then I had an epic train journey at the weekend, and yesterday I cross-stiched while watching a movie.

So now it looks more like this...
