How are you all? Hello and welcome new followers :)

Here is my little jam jar:

I'm I was working better than expected on the secret stitch. At first I wasn't really into it, I think that was because I didn't like the look Anchor gave to my stitches but I'm I was on a roll. Life has been a bit busy this last week so I've not had much time to add many stitches though I'm happy to say one row is definitely complete. I may have to change my stitch depending on how much I can get done on it this weekend...I'd like it to get out on time. I am eager to stitch on Mystic Garden.

I really don't seem to get on well with making pj bottoms. The first lot were too small at the waist and the shorts I'm working on have had me in tears. I was considering scrapping them but when I can face looking at them, I'll just unpick the waistband and make a new one. I've come to the conclusion I definitely need a walking foot for using jersey, there were quite a few times when it got caught in the teeth.

I've been thinking about doing a swap/exchange sometime in the next couple of months and wondered if anyone would be up for it? I haven't decided on the sort of thing to exchange, I just have some ideas written down so I'm open to suggestions. Maybe keep it small for the first time to see how it goes.

Anyway I better get stitching, hopefully next time I'll have something to show you all.


  1. Hi Emma! I'd love to do an exchange with you. I've been thinking about asking if anyone wanted to do an exchange too - what perfect timing! What kind would you like to do? Maybe something themed? Let me know if you're up for it!

    1. Sure, I'd be up for it. Is it ok to email you on the address that's on your profile? I just think it may be easier to plan that way.

      I like the idea of something themed. I suppose if we choose a theme then the item could be anything from a biscornu, to a bookmark or something different?

    2. Hey! Yep, that's my email. I'm so glad we're doing an exchange! If you'd like, we can make it a specific finishing or something seasonal... What are you in the mood for?

  2. I'm good for an exchange in the future if you like ^_^ Look forward to seeing the PJ's.
