Hello and welcome to another week of desk hopping, courtesy of our Julia.  You can join in the fun by going here.

This will be a painfully short blog today.  This is my desk this week...

Can you even see it?

This is a brand new design I'm making as a wedding present.  It will be a double portraiture and currently, I'm filling all the edging whitework.  Boring, sorry.

This means that all other cross stitches are currently on hold.  That includes Nathan's Diatoms.  It's going to be a tight squeeze as this new cross stitch is due to be gifted the day before Nathan's birthday.

In other news, two curtains have been unpicked and I am currently trying to source loose lavender locally.

That is it, I'm afraid.  Have a great week all! xxx


  1. Hi Lucy
    I cant believe you have started another one I hope you get some of them finished on time

  2. WOW! Hope you have good eyesight to work white on white like that. Hope you have a great week and thanks for sharing. Vickie #26

  3. Blimey, white on white? That would be a sure fire way to make me go off bang with frustration! Kudos to you for doing it. Why do you do the edging first instead of last, around the colours? Is it a better technique?
    Hugs, LLJ 41 xx

  4. Hi Lucy! Have you tried Lordington Lavender? Just over the border here in West Sussex? Happy Wednesday. :o)

  15. I can see it Lucy. You have to be the most patient Desker, and probably, the one with the best eyesight! Fun to see you last Monday!

  16. Your cross-stitch will be a lovely wedding gift, Lucy, and one that will be treasured! I used to do cross-stitch and loved it, but stopped when I got into making cards. Someday I feel like I will do it again. I hope you have a wonderful week!! Happy WOYWW! Darnell #61

  17. Oh my, I enlarged the photo and actually SAW the cross stitches! I'd be cross eyed if I attempted this!

    I'm so sorry it's taken me this long to stop by. Time management wasn't on my side over the weekend.

    Happy WOYWW
