Home is Where the Magic is!

I’ve settled into the new place after the chaos of moving house. A big thanks to Sandra Popek for her fun housewarming gift of Storykeep “Home is Where the Magic is” by Spangler. I love it!

My new place is in a very pretty green area, as there has been lots of rain recently.  It’s also close to a lovely walking track.  Here's the view from the bottom of the garden:

I was sad to leave behind my old stitchy spot as I was accustomed to the height of the bench and stool and balanced my q-snap between them to be able to stitch two-handed. Thankfully I borrowed a table off my sister and can now balance my q-snap between the desk and table!

Sing a Rainbow

The second page of Rainbow Girl is finished! I’ve completed all the rainbow in this column of pages now.  I’m tempted to skip to the next column and continue with the rainbow, but will persevere and finish this column first. The next two pages will be the animals, so there will be lots of brown and dark colours.  Deer antlers and birds are already appearing at the bottom of this page!

Glad to have finished this page in time for the next challenge. I’m hoping to rotate between several pieces whilst doing the next challenge…

Happy Stitching xxx


  1. Congrats on the page finish and the new place!

    1. Thank you Keebles! 🏑🏚🏠

  2. Lovely new home you have! Our area is suffering from no rain so everything is brown. On the flip side, I don't need to mow the grass very often. :) The colors in Rainbow Girl are beautiful. I've always admired Jo Wall projects but have yet to pick one up. I can't decide which one I want!

    1. Thanks Kaelyn! I love the rain. It's perfect stitching weather 🌧☂ Will have to send some your way πŸŒ§πŸŒ§πŸ˜‰ Josephine has so many beautiful artworks... It can be hard to narrow it down. That's why I've got 4 of hers on the go! I really hope they chart "Love is in the Air," been waiting for that one since the start of 2014! I've found it helps to live with the ones you love for a couple of months (or years, lol) on your desktop or as a screensaver. One always ends up capturing your heart more than the others over time❤️

  3. Looks like you have lots of wonderful new things and places! Enjoy:)

  4. Glad the move went well and you've now settled in your new stitching corner ;)
    Great progress on Rainbow Girl, it must be a joy working with such pretty colours.

    1. Thanks Ingrid😊 It's such a big job moving house! Matisse (my cat) is still getting used of being here and is scared of going outside. She used to love being outdoors... Hopefully she will stop being such a scaredy cat eventually lol😿 Very happy with my new stitching corner though. The colours on this page were a joy to stitch! 🌈

  5. I always love your updates :). Beautiful progress :)
