Christmas Cheer and some blankets.


Another Christmas ornament stitched, added to my pile of stitching waiting to be turned into a finished ornament.  I really must spend some time actually finishing them.

This one is Christmas Cheer by Country Cottage Needleworks.




It was such a fun stitch.




A small amount of stitching on my Winter Queen. I will finish her this year. 

I have made a lot of croched blankets over the past year and a bit, here are a few of them. 




My favourite one is the Canal Boat Rose one.

I'm half way through knitting a blanket, it's made from squares using different knitted stitches.  It's way too hot to knit at the moment so it will have to wait to be finished.

Happy stitching

Fa La La, a bag and an old WIP


Another small finish, this one from Country Cottage Needleworks.




another cute ornament from their ornament collection
Here is a bag I made, it's great for a day out, lots of room for bits and pieces.




and pockets to put things in.




I think this is one of my favourite bags, well until the next bag.  LOL

I have also dug out The Winter Queen.  I started her so many years ago and must finish her.    I do love this design but I think all the blues is why I keep putting her away.  This time I will stitch on her for at east a few hour a week.  I'll keep you updated.

I'm back


I cannot believe its been almost three years since I last posted on here.  So much has happened.  DS2 will start his third year at university in September, DS3 will join him for his first year and best of all DS1 and his wife had a beautiful baby girl and she is now 17 months old

Last week I was looking over the blog and saw that in my last post I had almost finished Six Fat Men by Lizzie Kate.  Well it was still in the cupboard, unfinished so I dug it out and finally finished it.

Here it is complete with snowflake buttons


Must have this made into a hanging ready for this Christmas.

I also stitched a couple of ornaments over the weekend


Old Colonial by Little House Needleworks

and


Christmas Cookies by Country Cottage Needleworks

I have a pile of stitched pieces that need making into ornaments,  I really must make them before Christmas.

I have been crafting while I've been away.  I will show you some of the things I have been doing in future posts.  I have made bags, cards and done a ton of scrapbooking.  I have a Cricut Air machine and I love it.

Happy crating

Sue
