Out with the old and in with the new

Great ideas of starting the Noddy bag and choosing a hardanger piece all went out the window.
I couldn't read the Noddy chart well and will need to enlarge it on the photocopier at work tomorrow.
Then I picked up my basket of. "want to stitch" pieces and found this,
so tacked up the linen and put in a few crosses before going to bed.   Instead of stitching over one I am going to do this over two fabric threads and see what happens.
Today I went by bus into the city and failed massively to cross anything off the shopping list.  But I did find this beautiful ceiling in, of all places, the railway station.   A veritable kaleidoscope of colour but a bad photograph.
Off to make dinner now.


  1. Hi Margaret, aren't new starts a wonderful feeling. I've just finished William Morris' Strawberry Thief and I am missing having a cross stitch project. Thought I'd get my other needle projects further along but I just might break down and start one. Happy Stitching in 2016!

  2. New start are always so much fun :)
    Happy stitching x

  3. Sometimes we just have to change what we are doing and sometimes nothing gets going.
