Sorry its been so long since my last update but I’ve been busy in the garden, when we get some dry sunny weather I try to get it tamed and its slowly getting there. I have a picture of a flower bed I got started over the weekend and I’ll show it to you later.
Firstly onto some stitching as I have been managing to do some in the evenings and I can feel my bug returning to full force so yayyyyy !
Let me show you my finish first. The biscornu that I’ve been going on about this last couple of weeks is finished and I have to say its my favourite in this years basket so far. Its a design by Barbara over at
To Stitch or Not to Stitch . This is one of Barbara’s own designs and I loved it. I never tried any of the rhodes stitches before so I learned how to do those. It was slow going as I wanted them right and I’m glad I perservered. For the back you’ll see I used the border and the centre motif. I didn’t use a button on this as I didn’t want to hide the centre rhodes stitch so I just stitched in the middle of it and I must say I like this better than wrestling with buttons which I sometimes do. Hope you enjoy !
I have another finish as well for you. My dear friend Heathers youngest daughter was 1 this past weekend. Our two daughters were born within 2 weeks of each other and its hard to believe that their first year has gone by…where did it go ??
Here is a little hanger I made for her.
Not to leave my youngest daughter out who turns a big 1 on the 26th I will also need to make a cushion for her as well.
