Stitch-a-long 3

It doesn’t seem three weeks since I last showed you my Signed Tealed & Delivered cross-stitch, I started it in mid November so I think I’ve made pretty good progress.This is going to be part of Kate Chiconi’s ovarian cancer fund-raising quilt, I know most of the blocks are now with Kate so I wanted to crack on with my contribution.

This is where I was three weeks ago…

…and this is where I am now, all the way round to Australia! Guess what that means…

…time for a happy dance! I finished it on Christmas Day evening, so it will be winging it’s way to Australia next week and will hopefully soon by Signed, Tealed & Delivered to Kate 🙂

There’s quite a few of us taking part in the stitch-a-long, all stitching our own project and posting our progress every three weeks. Please follow the links to see what everyone else is stitching. If you would like to join our merry band, please send a message to Avis;

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    Awesome! A double whammy, your SAL goal completed AND another block for Signed, Tealed & Delivered. It looks wonderful, and should complement all the other colours beautifully. I’ll let you know as soon as it arrives ❤ ❤ ❤

    Such a nice job on this Margaret! I am still loving that variegated thread, I think it is going to pull from every single block and just finish it spectacularly. Dancing with you!
