Stitching

I finished this stitchery today. A pattern by Australian designer Bronwyn Hayes (Red Brolly). I really enjoy her designs. Stitching is portable and is therefore a mother's best friend. I have stitched while the kids were at ballet classes, basketball training and games, ice skating, roller skating, circus classes, piano lessons, activity days, and playing with friends. I have also stitched while waiting at doctor's appointments, dental appointments, hospital appointments, and physio appointments. It is anti-boredom in a box, or bag. I am working on many stitching projects and thought I would make it a priority to finish some in the next month or so. So, first project finished. Now I just need to decide what I'm going to do with it. Stay tuned!

It's so lovely! Will you frame this to display? What ways do you prefer to use your stitcheries? Wallhangings? Pillows? Quilts? Totes?

You do beautiful work! I use to cross-stitch back about 18 years ago. I was stuck in bed for the last couple of months with my last baby and did nothing but stitch. I have two projects that never got done 18 years ago...maybe I should bag them up so I can be mobile like you!
