Amaryllis - week3 - and ................

The Amaryllis has grown again but not much happening otherwise.

Just to say my friend Ginny absolutely loved her gift
(see last post)

I didn't do this post yesterday because I was somewhat busy completing this sampler.  My first commission of the year.  It was needed by a certain date and I only started it on 6th January.  I haven't done any cross-stitching for quite sometime, and quite enjoyed doing this one, but I do have to say there was a couple of occasions I did actually nearly through it across the room!  I hope the person who commissioned it likes it too!


  1. Nice stitching, you did a lovely job. Your Amaryllis is coming along well. With regards to Orchids, all I do is once the flowers have gone, place the plant on a sunny window sill, let them rest for a while, not too much water (treat them mean) and then start watering them. I find they require light more than warmth.

  2. Oh my goodness - that size cross-stitch would take me months. Beautiful.

  3. That Amaryllis is very tall! Mine has 7 leaves but no sign of a bud just yet. Your cross stitch is stitched beautifully. x

  4. You are such a speedy stitcher, Julie! Such a lovely neat job!
    Happy week.

  5. Loving the cross stitch sampler Julie it's beautiful and boy did you sew it fast :-) dee xx

  6. What beautiful work, Julie. Those daffodils are so pretty, I'm glad your friend liked them. Sampler is gorgeous! xxx

  7. In my experience, just when you're ready to give up that Amaryllis will surprise you!

  8. Good grief - all those tiny stitches - amazing dedication ! Beautifulx
