Do you remember "Cup of Cheer"? Well I was going to make it into either a tea cozy cover or put it around a box to keep my tea bags in...... but instead I just made it into a little ornament and I have it hanging by my tray in the kitchen with my tea making stuff on. I backed it onto a piece of card and then added the blue cord, again this was a first for me. It went ok but if you look closely it isn't very straight!!
Lastly I have also completed my first little Halloween piece. It is a freebie from RainbowGallery. I only just had enough aida as I seem to have miss counted my stitch size, I know I cut this just before our holidays as I was going to get Laura to have a go at stitching it while we were away.... must have not been concentrating! Never mind, I will make it into a little ornament like the one above, the cord will just be very close to the stitching!!!
I put my Henry VIII fabric onto the frame in the week and couldn't resist doing just a tiny bit!! I did part of his hand! It has gone away now until it has it's turn on my rota - here's the next 4 weeks -
- Family Tree
- D for Dancer
- Henry VIII (& Warwickshire Map)
- Dusky Dreams & possibly start Pirate's Creed
I must also make a Golden Wedding Anniversary card for some friends of my parents before the weekend of 4th October but I have a chart already for this which I have stitched before so it shouldn't take long, I will begin it next week.
