Holiday Update #1

So I have decided I will take some stitching with me on our big trip and I got it together on the weekend. I'm going to take (you guessed it!) an alphabet design - nautical in theme - that I will stitch on dark blue Aida. I wanted to use pale blue, but the craft store didn't have any so I had to go with dark blue. The bright colours should still pop on the dark background, so that is OK. 

I packed my bag on the weekend and I still have a fair bit of room which is good. I think we're just about ready to go with all our arrangements in place. Less than 1 week to go now...
Happy Stitching,


  1. Have a great vacation! I see that you too use to follow Becky Bee's Stitching Hive. Whenever I try to look at old post for inspiration or to check out how she did some finishing it say denied. For being on the internet so often she went off all of a sudden. Wonder if all is well with her. We had e-mailed but she doesn't respond any more.

  2. Hi Kerrie
    So excited for you too! Will miss you & look forward to the holiday photos. And maybe one day I might be inspired to cross-stitch too despite the failing eyesight 😄
