My FNSI efforts....

More progress on my cross-stitched find on Friday night with all my friends at our first-for-2017 monthly virtual stitchy get-together.
I managed to get a little birdy finished, some flowers and the rest of the lattice-work (well, my Friday night DID extend into the weekend, I must admit! After a rather strenuous Thursday gardening and mowing session where I 'thought' I'd blown up the mower and I suffered a little heatstroke, I needed to spread it out a little)  A good stitchy rest over the weekend helped enormously and I'm all good now.
 I just love this find.....mind you, there's as much reverse stitching in counted cross stitch as there is in stitchery!  Particularly when you're doing one colour at a time!  Or is it just me??? I wonder!
But I do think it's worth it!  Don't you?


I didn't get to Val Laird's BOM block as my printer needed new ink and won't run with even one colour missing....I keep forgetting it when I go into town, so that's on tomorrow's list of things to do.....as is drawing this month's winner of FNSI.  Have you had a chance to catch up with what everyone got up to?  Pop back here and browse through the blogs....some gorgeous stuff happening on Friday nights, that's for sure!

I"m off for an exercise test tomorrow to check my ticker can keep up with me!  (Phew, after Thursday, I'm not so sure...mind you it was in the high 30 degrees C.)  I'll post a winner later on in the early evening, when I get home.  Make sure you've got your FNSI post up on your blogs to make it valid.....and the prize is......
you'll just have to wait and see! *wink* It'll be worth it.......promise!

Great progress Wendy. Love the cross stitch you found & yes i do do a lot of reverse stitching with cross stitch. Makes me cross :). Maybe another reason it's called cross stitch. lol. Hugs,xx

I do find cross stitching relaxing - until I need to uncross...maybe some tacking to show you the blocks of 10 would help a bit...just saying as I don't do it - know I should though! esp when frames etc are so critical.

It is a lovely design Wendy. It is easy to overdo it in the heat. Glad you are feeling better x

Hmm! I wonder if that is why my printer is playing up? Love that sweet nest and the lattice on your latest project.

Definitely worth working on it! It looks great. I'm glad you had a great weekend, and I presume the mower is NOT blown up?
