Hmmmm this new layout is a little strange! It'll take some getting used to I think. Why do they have to change things that work just fine????
I've been busy with my sewing machine but still have a few things to finish yet. Some are Christmas ornaments and I'm going to finish those as a flat ornament. I was going to get SB The Journey done but when I came to sew it up I'd cut my backing fabric too small! Duh!!! I really shouldn't be allowed!
So here's the Christmas ornaments I've finished. All have been shown before but just not sewn up. I've finished them simply as I don't seem to be able to turn my mind to doing anything else at the moment.
This pin cushion will be going to Nic, who I don't think reads my blog, as a thank you for sending me a knitting magazine I was after from a couple of years ago.
Onto my stitching progress now. Since my decision to abandon BOAF Sally Spencer Sampler I've felt a bit happier with my stitching. Not fully back in the swing yet but definitely getting there. I have been thoroughly enjoying HAED QS Holly Fairy ( artwork by the wonderfully talented Jasmine Becket- Griffith) although it has been simple so far as it's all black! There will be some other colours in it next time I pick it up! This is almost the first 20 rows of the first page done.
I had hoped to get my 8th page on HAED Guardian ( artwork by the equally talented Selina Fenech) finished but it didn't happen. Hopefully it will tonight then I can start on the 9th page. Just 22 to go! If I was a one at a time girl I'd have it finished so much quicker but I just can't stitch one thing!
My BBD SAL with Barb is growing slowly but surely. This photo is awful though as the fabric is supposed to be pink!
Finally I started my ornament for the Christmas All Year Round SAL. It's a free choice this month so I decided to stitch Shepherd's Bush The Angels Sang.
Sadly I've had no takers for my BOAF Sally Spencer Sampler WIP so will have to rethink and probably just sell the chart. Life's too short to stitch on something you hate that much it makes you not want to stitch! I'm also going to be going through my stash next week and having a sort out anyway so watch this space!
Well I had better end here and catch up on some blog reading and commenting. It's when I have no enthusiasm for that and I end up aimlessly surfing the net that I know I'm low:(
Take care everyone.
With much love
