Mackintosh Solo

I got my relaxing afternoon and continued with the long stitch Mackintosh. I managed to get it finished just after dinner. This was a really relaxing project to stitch and I just love the colours.

It was stitched on 22 count canvas using Paterna Persian stranded wool. This is one that definitely will have to be framed.

Once I had completed this, I continued with J's jumper. The front is now about 4cms short of the neck shaping. Hopefully, the front will be completed by tonight.

The boys are out for the day, I'm not sure yet what I am going to do. I think it may be another block for the Wolhemel blanket, but I am definitely going to make the best of the peace and quiet.
