What a great Friday!
Cheryll has hosted the final FNWF for 2015 & I know there will be lots of lovely stitching, sewing & general cleverness as a result of the evening... thank you Cheryll for our monthly stitching parties!
All the other ladies are listed here
I hope I'm not becoming (if I wasn't already!) a boring blogger... once again, I've got cross stitching to share... I took it with me to my Patchwork group on Friday & continued in the evening at home.
Start of Friday:
End of Friday:
This is the first time I've worked a design in which every single square in the design area is stitched, a 'first' for me in over 20 years of cross stitching!
I have some other finishes & makes to share too... my Little Santa is finished, however I'm not decided on what to do with him just yet. Don't you love the curls in his beard?! Beat that, Hipsters!
We had a Secret Santa small gift exchange as part of our recent Patchwork group Christmas lunch... I made a reusable shopping bag in some fab wide decorator fabric... & yes I deliberately chose blue, hoping no one would suspect it was me who made the bag! For such a simple item, I saw it was well-received, so that was a relief... I included a Christmas ornament from my giftie box with it, which was also welcomed.
I bought 1m of 150cm wide fabric & managed to make 3 generously sized bags - there was very little left over - the blue lining was a great bargain too - so these two are now in my Giftie Box. Wide woven cotton tape was used to create the handles... quick & easy!
The weather is playing silly billy's with us here this weekend... unseasonally cool temps & storms are forecast... I want some rain but not too much... our neighbour is working to put up his much-wanted dividing fence this weekend & I don't want a delay!
mr15 is very much counting the days until school finishes for the year... there is lots of socialising, playing of basketball, cinema visits & days out to be had, so he tells me...
