Crafting

The days are getting shorter and the nights leave behind frost on the ground. About this time every year I feel the pull of my craft projects…the desire to curl up in front of the fire with a cup of tea and a needle; to surround myself with bits of fabric and colored threads; to make tiny stitches and watch a picture develop.

This is one of my current projects:

I started this at least 15 years ago! But, I’m slowly getting it done. It’s counted cross stitch and stitched on tan 18 count Aida.

Lest you think I never complete anything, here are some of my finished projects from years ago:


Pattern is by Barbara Bourgeau-Richards – Counted Cross Stitch stitched on 18 count Aida (finished 1991).


New England Sampler – Counted Cross Stitch stitched on 18 count Aida (finished 1993)


Victorian House – Counted Cross Stitch stitched on 18 count Aida (finished 1990).

I’ve made a lot of counted cross stitch projects, and also done some Hardanger – but, these I’ve given away to various friends and family and unfortunately did not take photos of them!

    Wendy, you’ve made me want to pick up my needle again. What lovely work. The sampler is stunning. I love the Christmas one too, with the two sleighs. The one you are working on reminds me of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Little Land of Counterpane” for some reason. Lovely work.

    Christine, Maggie and Tui – Thank you for your kind comments! I love to work samplers or old fashioned looking pieces – it seems to fit the art form!
