March IHSW

I've been starting the day with a cup of tea and cross stitching. I've quite enjoyed it and find that I am more motivated/work better during morning/early afternoon. The majority of my stitching time has been spent on the smaller poppy and it's finished.

There's another March Goal finished and I'll work on the E-type jaguar once I've made a start on a secret stitch for a Facebook group.

I have another sewing finish, the magnetic snaps arrived on Friday and I decided to finish it on Saturday. The Phoebe Bag is a lovely free pattern.

I'm starting to plan other things I'd like to sew, sometimes picking the fabric is the hardest part...although I have found the perfect colour knit for a maxi dress and I'm itching to buy it and get started. I've got the perfect first knitting pattern for me, it's a basic pattern and the squares will be made up into a picnic blanket. I'm having difficulty picking the right yarn. Does anyone have any suggestions as a suitable alternative to ggh Colorado chunky?


  1. I've never used Colorado chunky, but I'm knitting with this beautiful yarn right now called Wendy Pampas Mega Chunky. It's a UK company, so you might be able to find it!

  2. Gorgeous stitch.Lovely bag too.

  3. Pretty stitching, I love cross stitch poppies and your bag is lovely.

  4. Lovely stiching and nice bag!
