Its been quite a while so quite a few photos to upload.  Busy Busy Busy...
I am really chuffed with my new sewing machine cover, I used the squares I have collected from the Fair and Square exchanges over the years, plus a couple of my own squares.  

Doesn't Holmsey the Hare look great (The Year of the Hare), Jan, Feb and March are complete.  Just starting now on April, but that's a bit of a secret for now, but I have to say he does look Hansom.

I was lucky enough to receive a CM Design, Blossom and Sparkle for Christmas, I have finished Blossom, if you can see from the photo it has little crochet rosettes which CM Designs do sell but I made my own for this one.  Very pleased with how its turned out, now to start on Sparkle once I have finished the next installment of The Year of the Hare. 

Hopefully it wont be so long for the next post, keep well everybody. xxx

My Halloween Finish

My Halloween Finish

Hope your all well and happily working away on wonderful projects.

Stitchersanon's mystery SAL is finished, I made mine into a hanger which took me most of the day, I completely forgot how to mitre bias binding, with lots of you tube video's later I sort of managed it, more practice needed I think. You might have guessed already but another passion of mine is digital scrapbooking.
Now what am I going to do on a Monday..  I Love to finish projects but hate it at the same time, I might be daft but I miss working on them.
Thanks so much for the wonderful SAL Stitchersanon, was really good fun and such a great design, its going to look great hung on my door on Halloween. xxx

Around the World in 80 Stitches

Well I finally finished Around the World in 80 Stitches, it was great fun and I have learned so many new stitches, although some of them took quite a bit of mastering.  Thanks Papillon Creations for such a wonderful Stitch A Long.   Phew!!  

Will miss this each month.

Mystery Halloween SAL and a little black cat

Hi Everybody, hope you are all well and enjoying the summer. Here in Ireland its been very warm and sunny which is very unusual for us, we could get very used to this.  

I have joined up for a new SAL called 'The Halloween Store'  I cant tell you much about it as its a mystery but the designer Stitchers Anon has given us two freebies to get us all excited, I have finished one of them which is a little black witches cat, Stitchers Anon is running a competition at the moment to name the little fella, who I have called Moggie after a cat we had many years ago.
If you would like to join in the SAL here's the link The Halloween Store which starts on 11th August.

The Pay It Forward Art-making Project for 2014

I found this whilst browsing on a friends blog and thought it a really great idea so please read below and comment if you would like to take part.  There are also a couple of finishes of mine, the first is Frosty Trees and the second is A Moira Blackburn design I got for my Birthday. xx

The Pay It Forward Art-making Project for 2014. I am so ready for fun and playing. These are the rules: 
I promise to make a small work of art for the first five people who comment on this post and say “YES, I want in”. A ‘like’ alone is not enough of a commitment, nor is a comment about thinking Pay It Forward is a great idea. You must state that you want to take part.  You must in turn post this as your status update in your blog and make something for the first five who comment on your status. The rules are simple: – It has to be your work, made by you, and the recipient must receive it before 2014 ends. – It can be anything art-based: a drawing/illustration or a conceptual work of art, a photograph, a knitted item, cross-stitch, paper maché – or anything in between. I’m paying this forward thanks to Stitchers Anon
First five, GO! 

PS. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t an artist, try something out, Google/ YouTube how to make stuff, step out of those boundaries.
