...stitching by the fire.....

After living here for almost 6 years, I can now actually sit and stitch in front of a fire again!


Builders have been around for the last 2 weeks.....


....there's still a mess everywhere....


...but I now have a lovely woodburner in the living room and a new kitchen!


It will be great to be nice and cosy this winter - living on the top of a mountain is not the warmest of spots!


Been playing around with that antique french voile....


.....with a paisley design printed on it....


....to be accompanied by a piece of Provencal fabric....


......a bit of lace.....


....and some red cross-stitching....







I've no idea what this will lead on to...


...I'm just enjoying it...

It will lead to something beautiful. How good to have a fireplace! I miss that.

All my favourite combination of colours. It's beautiful Chris.

Sounds like now is the time to sit by the fire and enjoy that chocolate!

The fire is wonderful - we find ourselves just sitting there staring at it during the evening..mmmmm

...and this colour palette, along with other muted shades (dyepot experiments from a few months back).....will be featuring a lot more from now on....feel like working a bit "softer"...

I'm still working on the Tribal theme, but mostly "production" pieces now.....and also allowing the theme to "morph" a bit more before blogging it again.

Good idea. The colour combo you are working with is also perfectly festive and timeless. So beautiful, Chris!
