1 Xmas item
The 25th has zoomed around again. This wee Cross stitch was a kit I bought from a suitcase sale at retreat earlier in the year. I have been making myself finish it for the last couple of months.
The thing is only about 11" x 16" but did I grumble! Grumble, grumble that was me! Moaning ole cow! I did not enjoy making this. Years ago before patchwork took over my life, I was a cross stitching junky. But now I would be happy never to do it again. The design is by Terri Lyn Richards, Shepherds Bush Printworks. The cool wire hanger I bought from the best quilt shop ever! The Country Yard.
Thanks again to our magical Elf Narelle for nudging us all to complete something each month.
Speaking of completions, I whipped this up yesterday ( another purchase from the suitcase sale.....thanks Rachel! ).........well she still needs eyes, but other than that she is finished.
Design from Country Keepsakes. She looks a little on the wild side don't you think?
When I am in my studio quilting I often listen to talking books. This was the last lot I listen to.........
Then I try & read in bed at night.....I usually don't get far before I nod off! I finished Clare O'Donohue's next 'A someday quilts mystery' The Devil's Puzzle.
Thanks for stopping by to my neck of the woods!
