Needlework Days: April 2012

With the house move you probably thought I had forgotten about Needlework Days, well you were right. In between one thing and the other I did but I had taken a photo before my cross-stitch was all boxed away.

This is a project I started probably during my pregnancy, although I have the feeling it may have been earlier. It's being stitched on a towel that I can then use as a tea towel or as a face towel. My mother is a great believer in keeping a separate towel just for drying your face during the daily beauty routine, this has been passed on to me.

Orla Kiely-inspired cross stitch
I love Orla Kiely's designs, I came across someone's cross-stitch project online a few years back and with a bit of zooming managed to work out the template. After putting it down for so long, I have learnt a lesson: whenever I use my own imagination for thread colours I must write the brand and numbers somewhere as I can't for the life of me work out which ones of my hundreds of threads I used when I started stitching this.

There you go, hope you like it! Now make sure you come on over to show me your needlework projects.

Here you can find last month's (and first ever) Needlework Days.
