Walk This Way #1

Well, of course the weather today was amazing, but we decided to come home anyway as we have lots of jobs to do around the house. All the exciting stuff like mowing, weeding, washing etc! It was lovely walking on the beach this morning with Clarence before we packed up for the 2 hour drive home.

After we'd unpacked and done the shopping, I went to the craft store to get some more threads. When I got home, I realised I forgot to get the dark grey for Sing to the Lord... maybe I'll go back again tomorrow...

Last night, I was flicking through the completed project pages on this blog. I realised that the Winnie the Pooh design I was planning to do for my friends baby is actually fairly similar (them all sitting together) but also quite different (background & foreground details) to the one I did for her first child in 2010. This is what I was going to do:
It's called "In the Meadow". When I was going through my threads before we left, I realised the pattern was in Anchor threads so I had to get a conversion to DMC chart. So, as I was going through my thread stash for the colours, I found another Winnie the Pooh design that I had forgotten I even had. It is from the same series as the original design I did for the first child, so I thought it would be better to do that in this case. Therefore, the Winnie the Pooh design I have started tonight is: Walk This Way
Here is my progress for this evening:
I love the bright colours in these designs.

We've got another day off tomorrow thanks to the Melbourne Cup (who can argue about having a public holiday for a horse race!) More house stuff to get done but I hope to get a lot more stitching done too.

Happy Stitching,


  1. This design is so cute and a brilliant choice for a birth sampler. It will surely make a lovely change after stitching so many Heartfelt designs. Hope you managed to get lots of stitching done during the Bank Holiday! :)

  2. Love the design, you are right the colors are bright.
    Love them all.
