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.

Just one July - final post.


Just one July has been great fun and I'm really pleased with how I've progressed. Thank you to Justine for the idea and for the encouragement. 

Here's where I was up to from my last JOJ post. 

Here's how it's grown over the month...

9th July

17th July

25th July

I'm really pleased that I've hit my target. I've decided to leave all the French knots until it's finished so they don't get squashed or caught. I hit my target with 7 days to spare so carried on to see how much further I could get. 

31st July

5th August

That just leaves 2321 stitches to go! 

So 5th August sees the start of the Olympics in Rio (Go Team GB!!) and the wipocalypse challenge. I'll be working on these projects:

Check out the July wipocalypse post for details. (Sorry no link - it's really tricky to add links on my phone) Good luck to those competing in the  Wipocalypse Olympics too, I'm looking forward to seeing how you get on. 



  1. You have had a very successful JoJ. Great progress.
    Looking fwd to your feat in Wipocalypse challenge.

  2. What a productive July you had! It's probably for the best that you left off the French knots until the end; to do like to distort. Good luck with your Olympic WIP busting!

  3. Oh wow, you can really see how much you stitched in July, it grows before your very eyes!
    Good luck with your Olympic Challenge too.

  4. Congrats on all of that awesome stitching, it looks great!

  5. Wow well done, you did loads!

  6. Fantastic progress! I'm glad you were able to exceed your goals on your focus piece. I recognize that Spring bookmark! I've stitched KK's bibliophile one twice now.

  7. Wow, you've made amazing progress! You're so close to a finish now. Good luck with the Olympic stitching! :D

  8. Sorry I'm so behind with blog reading I've only just seen this. Fantastic progress! I love the colours in this one it's so bright and pretty. Hope your Olympic stitching was just as successful.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. :-)
