One Little Finish

Yes, I have just one finish this month. The stitchery for this bon-bon was done back in January but then I moved on to other things before making it up. Sound familiar!!

This one is for me as I gave away all the others I made at Christmas.

Here's a peek at something I hope to finish over the weekend. I have several projects nearly finished so maybe May will be a more productive month.

Peace and Plenty - A Work in Progress

Thanks for all the welcome back comments. I thought I'd post again while I was still motivated. 

This is a stitchery I've been working at, on and off, for a while now.

It's another Leanne Beasely design and is called Peace and Plenty.

Leanne's sample is all in red but I felt like some colour for a change.

Although it looks rather grey in the photos, it is actually stitched on white Kona cotton.

I've just realised it's nearly the end of April and I haven't finished anything this month! There are plenty of UFOs in progress but I'm not sure whether I can finish anything by Friday night. Wish me luck!

I'm Back!

Long time no see! I  lost the stitching plot for a while but have started to get back into it as time/health permits. Below are a couple more New Years Eve star blocks this time in the blue Aviary colourway.


 I have a few gifts to make in the next month or so .. this might become one of them. I have a tendency to change my mind a lot!

 I keep each of my current projects in sturdy plastic crates. Oliver though this one looked like the perfect spot for a siesta.

And of course, Molly was close by. She thinks she's his mother ... funny old thing!

Will try and post again soon.
