Home of a Needleworker Too

Yesterday I ended up coming home from work due to feeling nauseous and hypersensitive hearing – as it was a ‘theme day’ at work, there was much hilarity and it finally sent me over the edge and I ran screaming for the hills. I guess I’m still not 100% over these darned bugs, as it’s been a real struggle at work this week. Oh well, it’s the weekend again, thank goodness, so two more days to chill out and relax 🙂

Once I did start feeling a bit brighter yesterday afternoon in the peace and quiet of home, I managed to get some stitching done, and managed to finish off my Home of a Needleworker Too. I really like this one – I did change one thing, and replaced the Crescent Colours Old Blue Jeans thread with something lighter – the Old Blue Jeans skeins I have in my stash are just revolting, and I really didn’t want my house stitched in it. Rather than buy more threads, I just found something that would be suitable in my existing stash – I like it soooo much more than that manky Old Blue Jeans 😀

That now means that I can use those scroll bars to start Mirabilia’s Enchanted Mermaid in the Large/BAP rotation slot … all I need to do now is to blow up a big working copy so I can highlight over the stitched sections easily – might take a run over to Officeworks tomorrow and organise that 🙂

  1. Congratulations on your finish! I was looking at the picture, and even before I read your post, I thought the house looked different! I couldn’t remember what color the house was, but now I know – mine is a murkier blue color. I love your change!

  2. This is lovely. I plan to stitch it over 1 on 25 count lugana. I’ve converted the overdyes to DMC. Have the frame on hand too but…..where did I put the chart???? I’ve finished Home of a Needleworker earlier this year. Stitched it over 1 on 25 count lugana, just love the look of that. Sorry to read that you are still a bit under the weather. When we have been sick for a while, it does take time to be 100%. Take care.

  3. Love the different blue that you chose. Winter in the square is gorgeous. Looking forward to seeing progress pictures of Enchanted Mermaid.

  4. You are on the roll, aren’t you. First the Winter Square, now Home of a Needleworker – great finishes indeed. Congratulations!

  5. That’s a wonderful finish 🙂 And the house color is perfect. AND a great word I’m going to add to my vocabulary. MANKY…now I have to get off of her and feed my MANKY kids some MANKY old supper….
