Joyful World - August

I haven't worked on the Joyful World Stitch Along very much this month but I've done the border and a little bit extra of the March design.


Another bit of the project is released on the 10th of each month and I'm always eager to see the next part of the design, I'm really looking forward to stitching the months ahead.

  1. I really like it, look forward to seeing what else you've completed. I've ordered a small kit to make a gift, home I don't go blind making all the x's

    1. I must admit that I have to use a magnifier as well as wearing my glasses, my eyesight isn't what it used to be.

  2. Is this a stork? I love storks, funny creatures they are. I have still not ventured into cross stitching.

    1. Well recognised, it is a stork. I'm really enjoying cross stitching, it's so relaxing.

    1. I wish I'd never put that cross stitch project away thirty odd years ago now, it's a hobby I'm thoroughly enjoying.

    1. It hasn't been released on the blog yet this month, it's late. At least I'm not waiting for it, I'm only on March.

    1. I found the large piece of fabric really hard to handle when I first started but I've got used to it now.

  7. I think the anticipation of what is coming next makes it exciting, then seeing it all come together is the reward. I'm enjoying seeing your progress. Take care.

    1. It does, I'm loving seeing the design as a whole unfold month on month. I'm sure it will be lovely when all the months are stitched up.

  9. This is the first time I've heard of a Joyful World project. What exactly is the finished item -- a tablecloth? I'm blown away by your talent, Jo. With my sausage fingers and old eyes I wouldn't attempt such an undertaking. P.x

    1. It's just a decorative project but I'm sure it could be made in to a tablecloth, a cushion or many other things if you wanted to. My own eyesight isn't as good as it used to be and I have to use a magnifier as well as my glasses to see where to place the crosses, but I'm thoroughly enjoying the project and find it very relaxing.
