Wind the bobbin up....

I was recently gifted a beautiful selection of threads for my hardanger. 

Each of the DMC and Anchor pearl threads now has a home in this handy storage container along with the threads I started with.

A gorgeous wooden box was also gifted which contained a selection of Caron and Needlepoint threads.  I have spent the last couple of weeks winding my own Caron threads onto bobbins to join them.  

I've also reorganised my box of freebie cover kits and given most of them away.  All that is left to sort is the two cabinets and an old tea chest...

Page finish - Hulk

We're enduring a heatwave. There are fires on the moors, warnings have been issued to look in on elderly neighbours and it's been difficult to keep cool.  It's been uncomfortable to stitch, so I've mostly spent my last few days reading, watching the World Cup and preparing to return to work.  Today we had a much cooler morning, so it was the ideal time to get some more x's in.

Oh, and the least said about my eyes of late the better...

Another few stitches

This fella stitches up quickly due to the bold colour blocks.  Another page done.
