It's a busy busy time for us all!

Hello to you all, yes I am still in the land of the living.  It has been too long since I wrote my blog.  As the header says it is a busy time for us ladies, but then it always is busy, but particularly at this time of year.  I always say that in my next life I am coming back as a man at Christmas time, that would give me a different perspective on life.

I have been busy sewing and loving it, as you meet some lovely people, I love going to June's club as we have such fun and it is great admiring the work the other girls are doing.

I have been doing a lot of red work -

These are 3 hearts that I have made for little presents.


The following 2 photos are of a stitching bag that I am making, it is a Polstitches design, you just fold it over in three to make the pockets.

 

 
This last photo is of another larger heart I am trying to get finished for another present.  You can see my markings I used a Frixion pen, which disappears with heat, and as I used a light box to transfer the design, it kept disappearing, but I got there in the end.


You could say that I have overdosed on red work, but I do like it.  When finished I shall try something completely different maybe some stump work or even applique.

It has got a lot colder here in the last few days, a blanket over the knees is a great comfort.  However when I read about the extreme weather in some parts of the world I have nothing to complain about.

Since last writing my blog, I have celebrated my Golden Wedding anniversary, which was a shock to the system, as I thought only old people did that (silly me).  I have also had a significant birthday, but we won't dwell on that.

Thank you for visiting my blog, I do value all your comments.  Try to keep calm in the face of the Christmas preparations, if it doesn't get done, forget it.

  2. Such pretty stitching. I too want to start dabbling in some quilting and applique, it will add a little extra dimension to some of my finishing work.
