As promised I am here with a picture of Little House Needleworks Where There is Life:) I actually finished this last year but have never decided on a way of finishing it. I was having a good look through the Focus on Finishing blog and found KarenV's tutorial for a tie-on pillow:) This was so easy to follow as Karen's instructions and pictures were brilliant. My finish is not brilliant but for a first attempt I am very happy. I think my pillow could have done with more stuffing and my ribbon could have done to have been thicker but living where I do it's impossible to find everything you need. We could do with a Boyes here as they have a brilliant selection of ribbons etc. Anyway without further ado here's my pillow:)
Helen asked if she could see the whole of the Christmas Mystery so far so I have just taken a photo the best I can as it's rather dull here again today! I am still very unsure about this one! I do quite like the snowflakes I've just done but as a whole the piece looks a bit "thrown together" if you see what I mean. Oh well:) It might get better but at least I am not the only one stitching this who is not really impressed! Part 8 isn't out as yet.
The weather has been awful again this week. I really feel for all the people who have been flooded, especially in Lincolnshire where some homes are flooded for the second time in a month. How much longer can this rain go on?
Thank you to everybody who drops by my blog. It means a lot to me to know there are people out there reading this and special thanks to all those who comment:) I love getting them.
