Zen Time

I got a bit behind with my zen cross-stitch, it’s actually called Enlightenment and it’s a mystery SAL which publishes the next section every two weeks. Last time I showed you I’d just finished part 7, but I then neglected it whilst I concentrated on finishing my gorgeous Zoe box…

Enlightenment SAL

Gosh, I just checked and this was six weeks ago!

Anyway, over the last week I dug it put again and cracked on with the next two sections, plus a little more…

Enlightenment SAL

I like the colour scheme of this sampler, especially the border, but I’m still a bit disappointed that as a mystery SAL it has been so predictable – I’m pretty sure I could finish it now if I wanted to, but I’ll be good and wait for the instructions to come out! I’m going to make it into a cushion when it’s finished to go in our guest room.

I’ll be linking up with Kathy’s Quilts tomorrow for Slow Stitching Sunday, please follow the link to see lots more hand-stitching.

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!

    This will be a great pillow top, perfect for a peaceful guest room! (I would have ignored it to finish the Zoe box too!)

  10. You are brave to do a mystery stitch along. It is a great motivation to stay caught up.
