OH MY GOD thank you SO MUCH for that tutorial how to frame a cross stitch in a hoop! I hardly cross stitch ever, but I made a present for my best friend in cross stitch around easter time (three succulent plants) and never found the nerve to put it into the frame after I realised that I couldn't find a proper frame for it.

This is a super easy solution and I am going to dig it out and try again. Thank you!

(You just glue the edge down, right? Or how does it stay on the backside without peeking out?)


Very pretty cross stitch, lovely colours. Wishing lots of love to your little corner of colour and craft x

A tip for hanging a group of pictures is to cut a large piece of paper (wrapping, newspaper,etc.)in a size large enough to hold the whole group. Then lay the objects on top until you like the grouping. Then put a colorful dot under the exact place each object has a hangar. Now, tape the paper onto the wall and hammer away! Presto, everything exactly where you wanted. I love that rainbow!!! LUV it!


Beautiful cross stitch ! A place to work has become a desperate need during this pandemic. Find it where you can. It is still definitely Summer here. Looking forward to cooler temperatures. Thanks for sharing.

I love your blog and especially all your trips and photos. I can't get enough from trees, rivers, landscape and your pretty cat. My cat could be a sister of your Tilly. A BIG THANK YOU for all your blogging and patterns. I already made some blankets and used some of the flower patterns for my seasonal wraths. Blogtober is great, I'm looking forward every day and enjoying it very much. Please keep on blogging. Greatings from the West of Austria (close to the Swiss border)


I love reading about your life. It chimes with me because I used to live not that far away but I’m now a defector and live by the coast on Merseyside.
I have a confession. I bought the wool to make a sweet pea blanket years ago and never did anything with it. I have been shielding more or less since March and I was needing a practical project for this coming winter. So this might be the appropriate time.
It’s lovely to visit with you. I think you must win an award for the longevity of your blog. Long may it continue.
If I get stuck with my blanket can I cry for help?

Mithering ....I haven't heard that word for years. My mother always told me off for mithering, I was very good at it.
Love your new corner and your new art - I love the colours. Love your blog too, I have been following for a while and it help through the lonely times.
Keep safe, happy and well, love from Morley.


Love your choices Lucy💕

I have found that during this what seems neverending time that I need to breathe deeply and settle my spirit down. Reading your blog is relaxing. You seem to be good at making the best of the craziness and then some. So good to have a quiet corner of one's own. Looks like you did some really beautiful stitching. And yes, a neat back gives you a little pat on the back for doing a good job. Thanks for sharing. Cooling off in South Carolina, USA

A little spot to call your own is just one of the most important things, and yours is going to look fab! Somewhere to nip to for a few moments of headspace!

Just lovely ...all three blend nicely! Xx


It looks lovely together, just a tiny shelf with a hanging Chinese lantern plant would look so well together. I am in a different stadia of life. My house became quiet, COVID finished it off. I've to sell my table for 10 to 12 persons I took down from India 23 years ago, by a smaller one and make myself two little corners, one to eat and one to work. Just like you, I need some faffing ;>p My two Persian gentlemen do need a place to be with me and disturb work and watch me eat. XD


Tricky to find a quiet spot here as well, I know exactly what you mean. I work on the dining table, which is a bit rubbish because I have to clear away three times a day. Oh for a desk of my own... Love the arty wall you're creating, the stitching is beautifully done and I love how you've finished it. CJ xx
