The start of a new month and a little more on
to report…. Christmas Garden
I love these final two motifs. I think I’d have to say they were my favourites. They just seem to go so well together.
As you can see I’m now to decision time…..what to stitch in the bottom section. Anyone guess what it might be?!?!?! The wording,
, or an alphabet? Many of you know how much of an alphabet
lover I am so this one isn’t going to be too hard to guess! Yes, I’m planning
on going down the alphabet route (with thanks to Katrina – if you haven’t seen
Katrina’s gorgeous Christmas Garden finish check it out here). Christmas Garden
Something else many of you know is my love/hate relationship with the sewing machine. But, every so often I take the notion and pull it out. A couple of weeks ago I bought a little kit and it’s been sitting there calling my name. Over the weekend I put it together. It wasn’t without incident, I made many basic errors both in the cutting out and putting together but I did come up with something that sort of looked like how it should! I was so taken with the fact that I actually managed to put it together that I decided to try again with some of my own fabric and here it is…..
Now, don’t look too closely. While I didn’t make as many mistakes second time round it still is far from perfect (lessons definitely needed in how to stitch round a curve!) but, given how low I rate my ability on the sewing machine…..it turned out okay!
Hope all is well with you and yours. Our younger son will be home this weekend for a couple of days and we’re looking forward to seeing him. He hasn’t been home since Christmas, which seems a long time ago now.
Thanks as always for your lovely comments and encouragement. With a bit of luck, next time I post it will be to say I’ve finished
! Then it’ll be decisions, decisions on what to
start next. Christmas Garden
Until next time……
