A new start

Having made an embroidered journal cover for Little Sister I thought I must make something for Little Brother.   He is much harder to stitch for so when inspiration struck I decided to get going and tonight, while watching Antiques Roadshow, I produced this.  
Another couple of nights and it will be all finished.  I'm stitching on cream 34 count linen and Autumn Honey Silk 'N Colours floss.   All is from stash which makes me happy!
And it's back to work tomorrow and reality will bite I'm sure.   However the holiday has been good and at the end of this month we have a public holiday Monday which makes a long weekend.  Great!

  1. It's always difficult to stitch for men. I find it the same with knitted toys, it's easier to stitch with girls in mind.

  4. I stitch dragons for the men in my life! Or Star Wars and Dr Who themed pieces.

    Love the colours in your latest design.
