Hello again! Thank you for visiting me I do appreciate you coming by and leaving me a comment. I'm slowly reconnecting with people and it's lovely to hear that I have been missed.
I've been doing a fun challenge on Facebook this week where you share one piece of your favourite needlework for 7 days. It was quite difficult to chose but it brought back so many memories off gifts and exchanges pieces that I had long forgotten about. I am on day 5 today. Here are the ones that I have shared so far.
It was a bit of a rush but I did manage to finish my January Ornament on Sunday 31st. I was so pleased with the colour changes and I just adore the face on this Reindeer. New York Dreamer was a new designer to me. If her designs were sold in the UK I would definitely buy more.One down 11 to go.
My choice for Februarys Ornament SAL will be Lizzie Kate's cute No Peeking. I had already started this in December last year so I should hopefully have it finished on time. June, Lynda and Colleen I hope to see your Ornament finishes soon. I am going to re-open the Ornament SAL blog that I used to have maybe it will entice a few others to join us. All you need to do is stitch a Christmas themed Ornament each month. The design will be of your own choosing. Then on the last day of the month post your Ornament.
As you can see I have made good progress on my Home of a Needleworker. I'm a little unsure about the orange colour that I have chosen and was going to change it to pink or teal. I asked a few people on Instagram and they loved the orange. What do you guys think?
The letters are actually a deep purple and not a blue as it shows in the photo.
Oops!! I've just spotted I never finished off the letter d will have to get that sorted.
I had some money left from Christmas so I treated myself too a few goodies from Sewandso this week.. I have a couple of new projects in mind but I will share them with you next time.
I am really enjoying my stitching again but my furry companion is not too happy about it...lol. Every time I sit down I find him lying at my feet squeak, squeak, squeaking a noisy toy or he dumps it in my lap. If I don't give him my full attention he then sits down and stares and starts his doggy language for get up Mum play with me! He's also been known to use his nose to nudge my stitching right out my hand..lol! I need to get him trained that he needs to nap when it's Mums chill out time.
Hope everyone is having a good week. Happy Stitches!
