I have no excuse, well ok I have but I am sure you all don't want to be bothered with it.
It's not that I want to neglect my blog... So thought I had better post something to assure you all I was still alive!
What have I been up to??
To be perfectly honest, not a lot!!
My knee, oh my knee.... That's enough of that!! Ha ha
Jon the darling to cheer me up got me some pretty fabrics and told me to create something!
So I did! Well I am trying to!! I had to organize myself so put all my bits into an old disused sewing box. The perfect place now!!
I am making hexies then when I have used all the fabric up I will put them all together ... Hmm I think I have been there before! Ha ha yes!! Look..... One that I did a few years back that is not finished! Well I have no table and have no clue really how to finish it.
Yes it's huge, not quite sure what I will do with it... It's kept in a bag in the cupboard.
Jon again being the sweetie he is, let me get some lovely hand dyed linen from a new source to try. They are from Chromatic Alchemy Fabrics and are on Facebook. This is my selection.
Stitchers Anon, yes the lovely Gale is doing a hop about with Holmey Hare... I naturally joined in!! Here is what I had to stitch...
It's on the new fabric, 32 count stitched with DMC threads 1 over 1.
Not a terribly good photo, sorry... But shows the lovely fabric!!
Oooh yes I am feeling really inspired right now by things in magazines... I recently thought I would try a new American magazine...
I love it!!! It has such lovely designs to stitch inside and I love the feel of the glossy pages.... Ah the little things!!
And OMG!!! Now you all know I adore Blue Ribbon designs, well in my latest World of Cross Stitching magazine are some lovely Halloween stitches :)
And... WOW!! This beautiful stunning design inside my digital copy of Just Cross Stitch magazine!! So very excited.
Now all I need it time!! Time to stitch all the wonderful things!!
Talking of wonderful things.. I am still stitching the Scarlet Letter design, Mary Gail.... Stitched on 45 count linen with DMC threads... It's so lovely. I had stopped everything for a while... But I am stitching again now and it's helping.
