OK I know I said fourth finish and I've only shown two so far this year but the third one is a secret until it reaches the recipient and it'll be on it's way as soon as I manage to get to the post office! Anyway my fourth finish is just a teeny one. Ages ago I won a pink tuck in a contest on the San Man Originals message board which was held for breast cancer awareness month ( hence it being pink). I hadn't come across anything that I wanted to stitch for it in all the time I've had it and suddenly I had the idea of stitching one of the planters from LHN's Where There is Life and putting that in the tuck so this afternoon that's what I did and here it is. What do you think? I stitched it on Polstitches Dragon Shades Cuddles using Crescent Colours.
My third finish is tiny too as it was stitched over one on 32 count fabric! Never again!!! But it does look sweet and I'm pleased with the way I made it up.
I really need to get some of the finishes I have made up into ornaments, wallhangings etc but as I'm on the stash wagon the only things I can buy are threads if I run out of what I need so it'll have to wait. I'm determined to do this until 1st April then the only things I need to buy will be materials to make tucks and such with and maybe some fabric for stitching on.
We woke up to a slight covering of snow this morning. DH went off to work but was home just before lunch as there was nothing doing so he thought he'd take some of the TOIL he has. We haven't had much more snow and what we have had has melted but I reckon we're in for a hard frost tonight. The forecast says rain for tomorrow so we'll see. Looks like we aren't going to get much snow this time so here's hoping for more before long!
My back is a bit easier today but I'm having to be very careful. I really don't want it to go again as it's so uncomfortable and I really need to get out of the house to the shops tomorrow, if only to get some milk and pay my Dad's paper bill and get his lottery ticket.
