It’s Winter in Perth…

… and I’ve been hibernating a little. It’s been raining most of this week, which is a welcome change, and temperatures have dropped to 19° Celcius maximum during the day and about 7° Celcius at night.

Not a whole lot of stitching going on here at Crossed Yarns – mainly because work is taking a toll on me right now and I’m so tired many evenings I can’t put in more than a few stitches.  Here’s progress with Sally Spencer Sampler, BOAF…

I also dug into my stash for a small project I could complete quickly and came up with this new scissor tag.

Peace Scissor Tag, Drawn Thread

I love it! 🙂

Warning ❗ Giveaway on the Horizon

I’ve recently celebrated another birthday milestone and bloggaversary and putting together a small giveaway to mark both occasions.  So watch this space…

In the meantime,
Happy Stitching to you all 😉
