Not been blogging, sorry not really felt much like it lately.
We lost our beautiful Labrador Charlie in November and I really did not feel like stitching. I got out my knitting and made a blanket. I had collected all the Simply Stylish Knitting partwork but had not made the blanket. So I have been knitting squares and joining them together and it is finished.
I'm very pleased with it and as the yarn is 50% pure wool it is lovely and warm.
I have done a bit of stitching and I've even dragged my sewing machine out and I'm going to finish some of my stitching. I did see online a new, well new to me way of finishing an ornament or small piece of stitching. It was using placecard holders to make them stand. I tried one
Not perfect but I'm happy with it. I stitched this in 2011 so it's time it was made into something. Mind you I have stitching a lot older then that waiting to be finished. If you want to try this here is a link to the Twisted Stitcher blog with the tutorial.

This is one of my favourite photos of Charlie, I miss her so much.
