Happy Easter

Happy Easter to you all. This has been a real time of focus for me as I have been so ill recently but I do seem to be on the mend now. I have downloaded a new app on my phone called Abide which is a prayer app. I can really recommend it to those who feel burdened and unable to pray. I think it is wonderful and you can stream the prayers so that you can listen for a long time. I have been feeling out of sorts spiritually for a while and this app has really helped me refocus. Easter time is a good time  to reflect too on the goodness of God and the love of the Holy Spirit. 

I finished this Victorian Motto kit in a day or two. So quick to finish. I have a few others to do in my stash. It's not a great photo as the design is very long. I need to get a load of finishes framed!

I wanted to show you an update of Quaker Christmas as well as I am busy trying to get this old wip finished off. I am really pleased with how it is turning out. The red looks stunning against the fabric which looks slightly darker irl. The fabric is LL Vintage light exempler. Threads are Threadwork threads.

And I just can't resist taking snaps of this little cutie. 

Hope you have a very restful and blessed Easter whatever you do.

A Quick Update...

I have really not been very well this year at all. From the first Jan I have been hit with viral infections. No sooner as I have got over one then another comes smack, bang along and floors me. I decided to try extra vitamins and echinacea to see if this would boost my immune system. I will let you know how I get on with them. 

Well I do have another finish to share. Sorry for the crude photo. Just too tired to do any of this blogging and photography malarky. Please forgive me.

Robin's Song
Stitched on white jobelan and using called for hand dyeds.

Winter finally arrived here in our neck of the woods. With it came a snow day off school - I was off anyway due to being ill but the kid enjoyed it!

Just so pretty! It has mostly melted away now. It was a great excuse to hunker down and do some stitching. 

So, that's three of my Crazy January starts finished. I am working on a second block of Christmas at HRH but it does seem to take ages on 40ct. 

Keep warm and I will update you soon.
