Enough of that! Where's the stitchy stuff?
A Tilda rose.
I got my nieces crayons out and added a little colour to this little stitchery. It's been whispering to me and I know what it wants to do, so I'll hopefully be getting onto that this weekend.
Stitchery number two, I started this one last night while I cozied up in the study with Hunney, just a little left to do and I'll have another Christmas decoration sorted.
This design was a freebie from Gail Pan Designs. Such a treat, I just had to have a go. I'm going to replace all of the French Knots with tiny red glass seed beads though. It's not cause I can't do French Knots, honest.............
Last time I did get out for a walk I called into a charity shop and found this lovely navy blue gingham duvet cover. It spoke to me, talked volumes it did! It wants to become shopping / grocery bags.
I got to do more shopping yesterday too. It was my day in the Onchan office. I took myself off up the hill before the downpour started and skipped back with these treasures. Some reds, because I'll need plenty to join in with Red Delicious.
I also found a bundle of ribbon remnants tied up in a ball, 50p for the bundle, not bad at all.
Well that's me, that's some lovely stitchy news! I'm off to drink the cuppa DD made for me, then I'm going to play with my needles, maybe I'll have the Christmas Stitchery done before Hunney gets in from work.
