About Nikki

A crafter of many years, now using this blog to share my ongoing projects and tips for others to enjoy. I mainly concentrate now on Heaven and Earth cross stitch designs - with several projects on the go at any one time. Also often found knitting shawls and socks, papercrafting. Easily distracted by new cross stitch patterns. Slave to a tyrannical black n white cat called Yuen.

Nightmare Pages 14 & 15 finished

It felt like a very slow month on Nightmare this month. I’ve been struggling to concentrate again and there has been sections with a lot of starting and finishing of colours. There has been a lot of background to stitch […]

Winter Porth Dinllaen August 2022
