Stitching Friends are Friends who Count 2021

Will you guess who my friend is in this summer's blog hop from Jo at Serendipitous Stitching

My stitching friend began her blogging journey as an OU (Open University) student. As life changes so has her blog and since the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown in the UK, she now regularly updates us with her cross stitch projects and takes part in many of Jo’s blog hops.

On reading her blog posts I find it difficult to categorise her stitching preferences but I know that she stitches on Aida and has found that she likes a size 28 needle though she is normally a size 26 fan.

She is an active participant in her church and choir, though I think lockdown restrictions mean that congregational singing (to her disappointment) is still banned. It’s not really a substitute but I thought she might like this design of carol singers from lilipopo.

Alternatively, according to her BFF (a clue) she has a thing about frogs and toads. I hope that is in a good way as I would choose this cross stitch pattern for her as a fun, quick stitch. This design can be found at Daily Cross Stitch.

In case you haven't already guessed it, my stitching friend is Roni from Life Outside the Washing Basket who regularly blogs about her BFF SAL with A Patchwork of Crafts.


  1. Lol yup I am a bit hard to categorise, I like a bit of all kinds as far as my cross stitch is concerned! I've only stitched on evenweave once, a baby afghan that my BFF and I completed as a round robin. And I've never tried anything on linen at all yet! Maybe I need to try something small for a future project. Thank you for the lovely carol singers, I am hopeful that this year I will be back with the choir for Christmas rather than quietly singing alone, so it's a lovely choice.

  2. Oh I guessed nice an early (then I would not be much of a BFF if I had not) I think U should leave it to Roni to explain the frogs and toads, and it is in a good way at least)

  3. Thanks for taking part in The Stitching Friends Hop this summer. Great clues and I love the little Carol Singers.

  4. What a fun post! So very flattering for her...I love the little girls singing, that's adorable!

  5. How cute the small motifs are, yes, singing is also a bit relaxed with us, but you never know how long you can do it before it is banned again.
    Enjoy your week, Martina

  6. Lovely blog hop, very fun! Roni was my stitching friend who count last year, nice to see her again this summer. xxx
