Needlework Tuesday - Look at me! I'm crafting!

It's time for another instalment of Needlework Tuesday.

I actually got some stuff done this week. I did a little of the counted cross stitch on the pillow. I'm still having some trouble seeing well enough to do it for long. I'm thinking of getting some kind of magnifier or something to help me with that. I'll post a photo in a couple of weeks when I've done enough to notice.

I also managed to work on my quilted wrap. I added a backing (in plain muslin) along with some batting. I pin basted some of it and even started machine quilting. Look at me go! I still have lots to do and I'm still not sure how I'm going to quilt it all. I know what I'm going to do with the squares, so I've started on that.

Here's a little teaser photo:

I like how the stitching frames the heart. After looking at this photo, I realized that I missed a row of stitching on the left. Oh well, like I said I still have lots to do. As long as I can devote some time to it, it shouldn't take me very long.

Needlework Tuesday is hosted by Heather on her blog, Books and Quilts. Go have a look at her work. There's an open invitation for other needle workers/crafters to join at any time.

  1. I know what you mean about having to take cross-stitch in small doses. If it's not the eyes, it's the hands aching. Thanks for the invitation to join in on Needlework Tuesday. I'm hoping it encourages me to keep working or may start something new.


Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
