Various !

Sorry I couldnt think of a title today!! So "various" will have to do!
I had a nice weekend but it was a little tiring having 2 dogs to look after both with differing needs. So I was glad to have the Monday off to recover and relax properly. Also noticed at the weekend that my fridge didn't seem very cold.... so turned the dial up, cleaned it etc but came to the conclusion on Monday that is was broke! It is a fridge freezer and the freezer part was still working! So we have moved that into the garage (as we were about to order another freezer to keep in there) and today I had a nice shiny new fridge freezer delivered. It is taller and wider than my old one so plenty of space for all the food we seem to buy weekly!!!
We have also all had colds this week, well Laura's was last week but she passed it onto me and Becki this week. I haven't been too bad just feeling a bit run down.
As for stitching here is what I have to show. I made the Rosie Rabbit into a cushion on Saturday. I found some grey checked material that was just right! I haven't made a cushion with a gathered edge for ages so I made a bit of a mess with the corners which had to be unpicked and stitched again. But the end result looks good and Olivia loved it too.

I have also been working on a Christmas piece to make into an ornament for mom and dad. It is a lady carol singer. I was hoping to finish it to show you today but it has taken longer than I thought and I still have a snowy ground and and snowflakes to add. So here's what I've done so far.

On Monday I made this other little Christmas ornament. It only has a simple bit of cross stitch on. I just need a charm or bit of holly etc to fix above the wording and it'll be done. I think I'll send this to my Aunt and Uncle in Dorset.

I have been working on Henry's legs..... which is boring as they are white and grey! I should get them done over the weekend.

Happy stitching

love Rosie the Rabbit, very pretty. Thanks for the link; I am looking forward to starting on the family tree. There are so many unanswered questions. I am going to wait though until after next Thursday to start as I am going to that Genealogy session, and she will tell us the right way to go about all of this.
