Goodie Bag exchange

I finally got round to taking a pic of the goodie bag exchange from last Saturday!

The theme this time was Saints and after much head scratching on my part and getting no where Lucy had the bright idea of St Anthony
It's difficult to put lost items in a bag so all my items were to try and help things not to get lost

This one escaped the pic

This the one I received from Clare's Mum based on St Anne and I have to say I was a little gobsmacked by some of the items esp. the tattered lace cat

Celtic knot

I finished this several weeks ago and at the time I did take a pic but it was awful and I deleted it and being me forgot to take another one.
I wore it on Saturday and realised I hadn't posted it so here it is :)

It's from a recent issue of Bead and Button but I don't have which one to hand although I'm thinking it was September /October time.
I really enjoyed it and hope to do more of them in the future

Weekend progress

I'm quite pleased with my progress this weekend and it's going quite quickly or it at least it feels like it is hopefully that will last and I'll be done sooner than I think, a girls allowed to dream!

Flower Tender update

Last week after stitching the coaster and fob that went wrong I pulled out Flower Tender to work on for the rest of the week and I got most of his wings done.
I'll be back on him next week and with any luck I'll have him almost finished

Ornament finish

I forgot to post this yesterday :(
We have a raffle at the meet up and the money raised pays to keep the BB ad free for however long the £ will pay for and we all take something along to donate as a prize.

This was my donation, Santa tube ornament from Threadabead 

I forgot to take a pic of the exchange bag I received today so hopefully I remember to do that tomorrow

Coaster finish

Today at the meet up we had a special visitor from the USA and unknown to her everyone going stitched a coaster as a memento of her trip here.
This was mine, Dragon Rampant from issue 17 of Mary Hickmott' s New Stitches

I'm off to Nuneaton tomorrow for a gtg with some of the girls on Needlecraft Haven and we have a goodie bag exchange.
I stitched this for my goodie bag and had it stitched together and the ribbon in place and it was going so well until I turned the right way out and discovered that I'd put the ribbon in the wrong place.
I called myself a few names and decided that no way could I put it in so it now lives on my fabric scissors and other arrangements have been made for the goodie bag.

And of course I had to have help while taking pics
