Sometimes it is difficult to commit the time that I need to my work. I am planning a number of pieces for different events but other aspects of life take over. The last few months have been such a time though I have tried to keep up stitching as much as best I can. I am currently working on a piece [1 meter by 50 cm approximately] that has a background completely covered by stitch this is my contact with needle and thread. As the background is almost done I will need to set aside a block of time to work out my move to the next stage.
