Crosstitch WIPs

Well, we are still only able to get one car up to the main road! We have banded together with neighbours in order to get a private contractor to come around and clear and grit the roads and a big JCB is just now clearing away all the snow and ice :D! Of course…it's trying its best to snow while he's doing it but hopefully the grit that he's going to put down afterwards should ensure an escape tomorrow, lol!  Catherine's school is still closed and won't open until Wednesday at the earliest – some villain broke in over the Christmas holidays and stole their supply of grit. The school is impossible to get to in this weather, it sits at the top of a very steep hill…Matthew can go to school tomorrow if I can get him there, lol!

I finally started stitching on The Library yesterday and I'm really enjoying it so far. It's slow going but looks lovely…only a tiny bit to show but at least it's underway šŸ˜€


I did do some stitching on my Blackbird stocking earlier in the week…before I got carried away with a certain snowman! The flash hasn't done the colours any justice at all unfortunately.


Finally, I dug out Geranium House this morning. I had intended to restart this on lighter fabric but having viewed it in daylight in a brighter room than this one I think it might be okay so I sewed it onto my frame and it's ready for some attention again.


Some more work to be done on Tail Feathers this week – I'd like to finish off those log cabin squares this week.

    Oooh very nice progress! Glad to hear that you’ve managed to get something done about your road, even if you and the neighbours had to take the initiative. Our street doesn’t quite have that community spirit…

    Just noticed you have read Silent on the Moor – that was a recommendation to me on amazon, was it any good?
