I started stitching this little beauty at craft club when I started going a few weeks ago. As I didn't go last week I decided to stitch on it at home and see if I could get it finished off so I could take something else this week. So here it is all finished up:)
Shepherd's Bush Christmas Candy Roll ( As kitted)
Started 28th June 2011
Finished 22nd July 2011
This one is a little different from the other rolls and it looks so sweet:) I now have just one more in my stash to do and two others to get at a later date.
I didn't stitch on BBD AotH Happy Birthday on Friday evening and didn't stitch much on it on Saturday evening either. I think the thought of those Lazy Daisies is putting me off but I did a few and will do more when I pick it up again. As you can see I did do some of the over one. I was going to use different wording but decided to still go with Happy Birthday. This block is going to be for my late mum-in-law.
Last night, as I'd finished my SB ornament for the month last Sunday, I had a new start. Dear Barb very kindly lent me Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers Peacock Pinkeep after I had tried to win it on Ebay but got outbid at the last minute. So at the weekend I dyed some 28 count Antique White fabric with tea and made a start on it :) I'm quite pleased with how my fabric turned out. I'm not using the Belle Soir silks as, to be honest, I can't afford to get them so am using the DMC conversion. I think the next time I go to craft club I'll take this with me as it's quite simple to stitch ( famous last words!). I may not be going tomorrow as I have a job interview just after lunch.
I'm way behind on blogs ( yet again) so will try and get caught up when I have the time. Hopefully when I get back from my interview. Jess has to have her blood tests done again on Wednesday as they found an abnormality with the last ones so want to repeat them to check it so she wants me to go with her again. I am rather worried.
Right better dash and get something done! If I do any good at this interview I will have to manage my time better and will not have as much time on the PC. My blogging, reading and commenting will not stop but Facebook might!
I cannot end without sending my thoughts and prayers to the people of Norway after the tragic events there. Just a complete waste of innocent lives.
Love & hugs
