As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

Jo's linky party

Hi Friends

So Jo at serendipitous stitching is hosting a summer linky party and this is what Jo has to say...

 The title is The Tenuous Shoe-Horn.  We all know how much I love to shoe-horn a project into a theme and there has been a degree of this with the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL too, all in good fun. All you have to do is make a post and link-up on that date, or very close to it, showing a stitched project with a tenuous link to the theme.

The Tenuous Shoe-Horn Party

So here is my summer entry...

I stitched this for our 10th anniversary. So summer brings long light evenings and they don't get much longer than my wedding anniversary which is on the longest day.

Summer seems to also mean Dragons, I've been back through my photos and I can find at least 7 that I've stitched in June.

You can't have summer without a trip to the beach although British summer's often lack sun!

I thought I'd throw in a bit of crochet as I made this blanket for a little girl born last July and I love the bright summer colours.

I've also been given some beautiful summer stitching - all from Steph for various summer swaps

So all in all not that tenuous, but definitely Summer!

Happy crafting friends.


  1. Thanks for joining in. I think that the dragons are the most tenuous link and they are also my favourites so you get double shoehorn points for them LOL And for the anniversary piece which I think you've used for the Valentine Hop?
    Love the centre piece from Steph too.

  2. Love your summer stitching, especially the crocheted rug - yes, such happy, summer colours.

  3. Terrific summer stitching!

  4. Now this not a shoe horn. You have so much to show for summer stitching.I didn't knew you crocheted too.
    I love the cushions/pillows from Steph.

  5. Beautiful! And love the dragons!

  6. Some lovely summery pieces there, the colours in the crochet are gorgeous

  7. Such lovely Summer stitching, and crochet too! Gorgeous!
