How did you go at our Friday Night Sew In Part-ayyy?

Did you manage to join in?  What did you get up to?  I'll be popping over to see what gorgeous creations were worked on all around the globe, but in the meantime, here is what I was working on....

a little bit of cross-stitch.

I love the challenge of counted cross can be a bit daunting but I like to highlight the pattern as I've done it so I know where I'm up to.  It works for me!
The feeling of achievement when you start to see the picture come to life is awesome!  This gorgeous kit depicts a typical house in northern Australia called the Queenslander.  Built on stilts, the cool air circulates beneath the house and through the windows creating a natural form of air conditioning.  It has an elegance all of its own, don't you think?  These are a popular type of house for young renovators and many have withstood cyclone after cyclone.  Funny though, not many in the tropics have a need!
So what have you been creating?   Have you had a chance to go and see what others got up to?
Pop back HERE and see what was happening.

Off for more cross stitch this afternoon for me I think!
xox sugary hugs :o)

Cross stitch is fun to do and your old Queenslander is growing beautifully.
