The other thing

This is what’s been keeping me away from my knitting recently:


It’s a cross stitch of a house, and there will be flowers around the edge of it too.  I love new challenges and apart from the ones you do as a kid I’ve never tried cross stitch before and really wanted to have a go.  I’m doing quite well apart from the odd miscounted block of stitches that I've had to unpick.  I’ve learnt not to stitch bits that are really far away from other bits because it’s hard to make sure they’re in the right place until it’s too late!

I plan on putting the finished article on my wall in my new home, and it’ll be the first home-made thing I’ve done for this house, so I’m quite looking forward to that!
