Friday, 17 August 2018 update

Hello to anyone who is still around, the whole world seems to have switched over to Flosstube which seems to have become a bit of an obsession of mine!  There are so many talented stitchers out there showcasing their work. Even the stitch with me videos are great as I can stitch along and just listen to them talk about what's going on in their lives - but you know all this!  Rachael keeps saying that I should do my own flosstube video - honestly that girl is MAD!  Rachael is is a big fan of Flannel Jammies Farm and Luke will 'sit through' (watching but he'd never admit it!) The Addicted Sisters.

So...since I last posted I haven't really had any finishes.  I am in the middle of stitching a hardanger ring cushion for my workmate for her wedding in October.  I have just started the cutting - argggggghhhh!  It's scary!

I have stitched another page and a partial page on Poppy Dance and have now finished the top row of it.  When I pick it up, I find it hard to put it down again even if it is slow going to see any progress on it.

And the whole thing so far :)
I have also finished February's part on the Under the Sea SAL from Lakeside.  Well I say finished but I need to get a thread to finish one of the fish but other than that, it's finished!  I started on May's design as that meant I didn't need to move the Q-Snap.

I am still working through the focus pieces for the year for the rest of the year but I am planning on a new start in the first time for a long time.  I have started collecting the Letters from Mom (that will be getting spelt properly - sorry US readers) and plan on stitching one each for Rachael and Luke.  I'm not sure that Luke will appreciate it though.

Nice to see a post from you. Love those Poppies!

There's still a fair few Bloggers going, I think Instagram is another drain as it's so quick to post photos there. But I always liked the chat of a blog and the comments.

Nice to hear from you again!
Lovely stitching, those poppies are wonderful.

Hi Sharon! You've made beautiful progress on the poppy piece!!! I have also started the under the sea SAL....I must finish it too... I probably have 5/6 months left to do ;)

Katie said...

I don't know why but the flosstube videos just bore me to death. So I post daily progress when I stitch on Instagram but I love chatting in the blog world. So please don't leave for long. Love your WIP. I need to get back to my Under the Sea SAL too. I really want to finish it but just have so many other pieces screaming for attention. Can't wait to see your new start.

Great progress, your Poppies are coming along beautifully!
I love all the Under the Sea critters, so cute.

Lovely to see an update from you! I like some Flosstube but some of them go on far too long! So if you're going to do it, make short films ok?!

Lovely work Sharon, the poppies look great, I might do something similar for remembrance day in November, my husband says he can put them in a
photo mounts or I may just make it into a cushion for my grand dad. Please keep the updates coming
