Picking Up The Needle

The fabric of my life has frayed a bit over the past few months but now I’m gathering the threads together again. (See what I did there?) Even my stitching got put aside for a while and the longer I left it the less inclined I felt to resume stitching. Yesterday I made myself pick up the needle and stitch, just for fifteen minutes I thought. Boom! The joy of stitching surged back through my veins. Now I’m keen as ever to stitch so I’m back to work on the BrightSea Village Needlecraft Shop and having fun.

BrightSea Village Needlecraft Shop Progress

I’m going well on the back wall. Two of the villagers are sitting out in the sun stitching, knitting and having a good old chat.

I’m not that keen on back stitching (is anyone?) so I make myself do one strand of it every fourth needle threading.

 

To Bee Or Not To Bee

Bee-latedly, here I am, announcing the release of the Pyramajig #1 — Bee Happy. Hooray! (A pyramajig – my invention – is a nifty little container for holding all sorts of gifts or goodies. It’s shaped like a pyramid but opens up to a neat little box.)

But wait, there’s more! I’m also releasing Newton Abbot, my new miniature carpet.

I’m now working on the next instalment in the BrightSea Village collection. It’s about time the village got a needlecraft shop.

The Last Page & The Next Chapter

All pieces of the BrightSea Village Library have now been stitched and are waiting for the addition of beads before assembly.

While my needle’s still hot I’m already starting on Yeung Shing, the next miniature carpet in my collection. Here are the colours I’m using.
