Oh to have the time to sit down after luncheon with my needlework.

Ros

I admit, I've never cross-stitched a staircarpet but since I live in a house with no stairs, I don't feel bad about that. I have, however, cross-stitched most of a large rug using 6 of the Elizabeth Bradley needlepoint kits. One day perhaps I shall be a bride and I shall have my cross-stitched rug ready in my trousseau!

Heather

I do find cross-stitch to be very soothing as well, which is something that my non-crafting friends don't understand. (Although, I think embarking on making an entire staircarpet would stress me out to a whole new level!)

Miranda

I love that quote! It's marvellous! I so enjoy embroidery too. Is that a picture of something you're working on? It looks gorgeous! xxx

Cornflower

Indeed!

Cornflower

Elizabeth Bradley designs are wonderful, and to do six is no mean feat. Well done, Ros.

Cornflower

It's lovely to work with your hands, isn't it, whether painting, drawing, or plying a needle.

Cornflower

It's a piece of crewelwork I started ages ago and must work on regularly again. I do enjoy it!

Kathleen.

A stair carpet no less! A book you would like is Susan O'Connors "Embroidered Flowers for Elizabeth" very inspiring.

Cornflower

Noted! Many thanks, Kathleen.
