Nothing really...

I haven't done much in the way of crafty type things lately hence the lack of updates.

I've started stitching a needleroll and I'm knitting the longest scarf in the world...stay tuned for pics of both :)

Look what I got!

I received this in the mail from Sylvie this morning. It's beautiful, thanks so much my friend :)

After what I've been through this week, it was much appreciated and really cheered me up.

Prayers needed

I don't usually write about much personal stuff in my blogs, but tonight is different.

My mother in law is seriously ill - if you have a God, would you include her in your prayers tonight please?

Peace to you all.

First Xmas Ornie

This is the first Christmas Ornie I've finished this year. It's for an exchange, but I know there is no chance of my partner seeing it so I'm safe to show you.

The picture isn't very good - perhaps I'll try and get a better one in daylight.

I'd almost finished a Christmas Ornie earlier when I realised that something was out of place...thats what I get for letting my mind wander when I should be concentrating. I realised I had some frogging to do, got all fed up and disheartened and put it away. Grrr I hate it when that happens!

I have the urge to start Just Nan's Legacy...I must resist..I must resist... oh it's soooooo pretty!

I paid a visit to my LNS the other day. Well, it's not a shop as such - it's a craft warehouse that's part of a garden centre. The have a small section for stitchers...DMC and Anchor, some kits, a few charts, a small selection of fabric and accessories. That's about as close to a LNS we have around here.

I remembered why I do all my stash shopping online. It was almost £14 ($24) for a fat quarter of 28 count linen and £15 for a Mirabilia chart! Needless to say I didn't buy anything stitchy.

I've been kitting up a few new projects - Just Nan's Legacy, a couple of Bent Creek's and I've started Lorri Birmingham's Spring Hardanger table runner. It's looking lovely even though it's my first attempt at buttonhole stitch. I may give it to my MIL as part of her Christmas present although if it looks too nice it'll end up on my table instead ;o)
