Joining in with Ginny.


This is not knitting, it's definitely not crochet as I haven't a clue how to do does use yarn though so I'm hoping it counts for the yarn-along.

I've been beavering away on this gorgeous needlepoint tapestry since it arrived in November. It's designed by Anna Maria Horner for Anchor Living and it uses tapisserie wool in the most gorgeous vivid colours. I had no idea how much fun this would be, it's just like colouring-in but with wool and canvas instead of paper and pens. I aim to stitch a length of thread each day and I'm making good progress, it's slow but it's progress nonetheless. Often slow is exactly what I need, love it.

On the reading front, I've just started Simplicity Parenting by Kim John Payne which I'm finding really interesting. I'm having trouble keeping my eyes open at night though so I'm only getting through a couple of pages at a time, again  progress is slow, but it's progress nonetheless! 


  1. your tapestry is so beautiful, it's been many years since i've done needlepoint, it is such a fun craft!

  2. Beautiful! Can't wait to see it finished!

  3. I LOVED Simplicity Parenting. Must read it again. And I guessed that tapestry was Anna Maria Horner before I read your words. I love her designs - so distinctive x
