1st Flatfold

Been a bit busy with the school holidays but I have finished my first flatfold.

I was very pleased with it and have a few more stitched pieces lined up to be finished this way. Here is the back and side view.

I wish I had known about the flatfolds and cube finishes before now.

1st cube

Well I did it my first cube and I love it. I used a Christmas Cookies by Sanman Originals (forum member's only chart). I can see a load of these being made for Christmas and Halloween.

I also made a Floss Tag with another SanMan design (forum member's only chart), a Halloween one this time.

I also remembered to scan the Frozen Banner, another SanMan design (forum member's only chart).

I have almost finished a flat fold as well, just need to put the braid on then I will show you.

Needles and Teachers

Well I have actually finished my first needle case, not perfect but I'm pleased with it. I added some wadding to make it slightly padded and added a pocket for my scissors.

I have also stitched the teacher's gifts, just need to get them framed. Best Teacher is by Glory Bee and Teaching Is A Work Of Heart is by Lizzie Kate.

Just got a couple of SanMan's I want to do then I am going to try and make either a pinkeep or a cube.

Flip Flops

Well I was not going to be beaten by that frog so I have finished stitching the flip flops and will make them into a needle case after I have finished the teachers gifts.

Jack has picked Lizzie Kate's Teaching Is A Work Of Heart and Tom has chosen Best Teacher by Glory Bee. Hopefully they will not take long to stitch as I want to finish the needle book.

Charlie and frogs

Well who sent the frog. LOL I decided to finish stitching the needle case before I started the teachers gifts and just finished stitching the last flip flop when I noticed it was one square out!!! So I had to unpick it all.

Never mind, no stitching to show you so here is a picture of our dog Charlie instead. She is almost 3 years old and such a sweetie.

Sally Snow

Been a busy couple of days but I did manage to sew Sally Snow together, just need to find some braid to finish her off.

I have a couple more Halloween ones like this from Lizzie Kate, hopefully I can have them ready for Halloween this year. Will let you know.

Stitched five flip flops on the Summer SAL needle case, two more to go. Not sure if I will get them finished this weekend as I must get the teacher gifts stitched. I always leave things till the last minute.
