Something unrelated to craft today :)

Unless you count sleeping on my lap as I stitch :)

St Basil progress

Here's my weekend progress on Basil.

I know it's a flat piece of work and when I'm stitching on it I never notice just how round and 3D the towers look but when I take a piccie I see it clearly, does anyone else?

More snowflakes

The other 3 I have received so far.
They do interlock but one of the others has outlined her's in white before sewing them together and I quite like that idea so I'm undecided as yet what I'll do

12 days SAL

I didn't post a progress piccie of this one last week because it wasn't worth the effort!
All I managed to add to it last week were the lines around First day :(  but this week I got Second day almost finished, yay me

Fruit progress

Here's how I got on this week with the fruit, quite pleased with the progress :)
It's surprising just how much more I can get done when I'm not out 3 evenings a week bowling.

I don't think I'll quite manage to finish the page by the end of the month but I won't be far off but you never know

Hexie snowflakes

Another swap I signed up for on Facebook.
This time it's for snowflakes in blue & white fabric, they are also 1" sides but this one is a UK only swap and there are only about 20 of us

The first 3

Hexie quilt

I've started putting together my hexie quilt from the swap I'm doing on facebook, not quite sure if it's going to be a single quilt size or a lap quilt.

So far I've received 96 flowers from all over the globe, mostly from the US but a few have come from Australia and the butterfly one in the pic is from about 15 miles away :)

Weekend progress

I'm very pleased with the amount of progress St Basil's saw this last weekend, the end is in sight :)

Fruit progress

Not much progress last week between running back and to to the vets and stitching white/cream on white which I really didn't like but today I've already surrounded the flower with leaves so you'll be able to see it better next time

And a useless bit of info for you all....... today is my 25th wedding anniversary although we have been separated for the last 9 of them


I'm double late posting today :(  
The TUSAL should of been posted a few days ago and it's gone midnight again but this time it's my own fault as I got distracted moving pics around on facebook.

So since the last TUSAL post I've added orts from Fruit, Magical Night, St Basils, Sewing Machine and 12 Days SAL along with plenty of sewing thread from hexies

It looks like I've not added to this one but I have and it's something other than white :)  hopefully next time there will be more colour in it
