I have made bit more progress in my chain stitch piece.. ..

I usually don't get to do much embroidery after work as it does require fine stitching, and night lighting is hard for my eyes (even with glasses). I mostly do these types of work during day light. So, it has got limited to the weekends.


It looks like that my crochet hook does not seem to catch a break.. I thought after the last project I would take break from crocheting, but it was not to happen.  Here's beginning of something new...with all the odds and ends that I have accumulated  since I started to learn crochet; which was just over 2 years ago.

For the past two years I have been buying yarn from the thrift store; often they are either half used, almost used or on a lucky day full. There are also lots of colours which have not made into any projects and I am trying to use them all  too. I am surprised at my collection of left-overs from left-overs :)

Free maple leaf tutorial is from this blog;

HAPPY CANADA DAY !! to all  my fellow Canadians..

Thank you for taking time to have a peek,

till next time,


  1. your chain stitch design is coming along well. Have you tried a daylight bulb in your light, I find it makes stitching much easier as it gives a natural light. Your crochet shawl is coming along well too

  2. How clever to crochet a maple leaf :) Happy Canada Day :)

  3. Your embroidery is beautiful.

  4. Really gorgeous embroidery Gaia - so intricate! Great to be getting so much use out of your left-over yarns - lovely maple leaf too :) :)

  5. Wow, your embroidery is so great. I love it! Hope you had a great Canada Day week :)
