We were away last week at Kelso, and in between castles and monasteries
and Walter Scott stuff and charity shops
I did some cross-stitch.

The two Wool-on-plastic-canvas were supposedly kiddie kits -
but the plastic needle given bent and brokešŸ˜³
and I had to use a tapestry one.

I backed both with variegated wool from stash - one fawn, one blue but with half cross stitch only.

The other little flower kit is a small grown up one.

Very pretty, the variegated backgrounds really give the two wool kits something extra. It's a good idea taking little kits away with you - but a good job you weren't relying on their needle!

The cross stitch work is lovely, so fresh and inviting......wonder if anyone else has had problems getting on here today.....looking at the last time people posted it appears to have been a general problems but now all seems well, take care everyone and enjoy your weekend..here has been pouring with rain most of the day...I went shopping with my son in law and bought garden edging for around our patio, so obviously he couldn't help with that today......we shall see what tomorrow brings.
