Lakeside Farm

I've already introduced you to my first new quilting project of 2011. Time for the new cross stitch to be introduced. The tigers will still be in the mix but as you know they are one of my Mum's UFOs and I figured it would be nice to start a brand new cross stitch too.I bought this kit, called Lakeside Farm, while on holiday last June and as yet it hasn't seen the light of day. I fell in love with the image as it really reminded me of a scene from my favourite Buttermere. We're hoping there is a chance that we might get back to the Lakes for maybe a week in May or June so it would be nice to have this well under way by then.

I think I'm going to work this in a monthly rotation with the tigers, so January will see the start of Lakeside Farm. I wonder how much progress I'll have to show you at the end of the month. January is traditionally quite a quiet month after the manic festivities of December so maybe that'll mean a good amount of stitching time. We'll see. In the meantime the first few stitches have been made.

I love your new cross stitch project and it looks like you should be able to make good progress on it. Your tigers is still I think by far one of the more beautiful pieces I have ever seen but that one is a major undertaking. Have fun.
