Cross Stitch, Works in Progress

Grapes, grapes and more grapes …

Today I stitched on Bordeaux Sampler all day … I was originally going to just stitch for an hour, then thought to myself ‘sod it’ and had a marathon stitching day with it, so I’m very very close to being finished with it.  Seeing as I’m so close, I’m going to keep going to see it through to completion.  I’ve been fighting off a cold for the last week and a half, but I woke up this morning really bunged up, so called in sick – I’ve spent the entire day cocooned in my PJ’s, sat in the leather recliner, with my laptop playing DVD’s and stitching my little heart out … it was bliss.  Anyway, enough already, here’s the photos …

First up I finished off band 7 of the sampler …


I was going to put it away at that point, but I couldn’t be bothered getting up to find something new to stitch, so I loaded up another needle with burgundy thread, and I started work on those dratted over-one grapes.  By the end of tonight, though, I now only have another 6 large bunches left to stitch, plus two small bunches to finish off each side of the lettering.  I think by the end of this weekend I’ll have a happy dance coming! 😀
