Yesterday I decided to try my hand at making a flat fold :) Now I've never tried this before so had absolutely no idea how it would turn out! I had seen a tutorial for a framed flat fold and thought that would be ideal for Little House Needleworks Holly & Berries so I started cutting card and fabric and steadily worked my way through each step, getting very nicely glued up in the process, and ended up with this :) of which I am very proud! I think I would have liked my cording to be a little thicker plus I would have liked something to cover the join in it but I don't have anything suitable. Other than that I LOVE it! Oh and the bow at the top is off a box of Thornton's Continental Chocolates! It really does pay to save these things ;)
I used Angela's tutorial on her Hooked on Stitches Tutorial blog. Do go have a look if you haven't done before. I'm sure that there are many of us who appreciate these ladies such as Angela and Vonna who take time out to do these tutorials for us so thank you ladies :)
Tuesday evening it was time to pick up my Chatelaine Christmas Mystery IV and, for all I did not do much, I did do some! I filled in the rest of the metallic on the wing then made a start on the hair. By 9pm I decided enough was enough so I picked up the piece I'm stitching for Michelle for our trades but I ran out thread so had to put that away! I now have the thread so hopefully I'll get that finished and made up soon.
My other stitching is the SB Schoolhouse roll I started in September but didn't get finished so I'm hoping to finish this and stitch the Happy Pumpkin one too this month. This is my progress on the Schoolhouse one so far :)
Tonight and tomorrow night is Shores and I'm looking forward to getting lots more done on block 9 stitchingalong with Lisa who is stitching Spooky but next week I think she's joining me with her PS piece in order to get a bit more done on it :)
I think I'm going to have a lazy day today as I have Abi off ill with this cold/flu bug that seems to be doing the rounds. She's been dreading getting it and hoping that she wouldn't but as I type this she's in bed fast asleep, bless her.
Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for all your lovely comments. I do love getting them and reading them :)
