Loving the pistil stitch

We’re on week 37 and this week I’ve made the 34th stitch of the year! Wow, right? The sampler is growing, slowly but steady.

Cotton time when joining the ripple craze

Not a lot of blog posts here this week because I’ve been crocheting. On Saturday I went for a long walk (couple of hours long walk!). Lovely autumn air and in the middle I had a pit stop at a yarn/fabric shop where on impulse I picked up a couple of skeins of cotton yarn […]
