My Needle and Thread have been…

busy stitching on LHN Needle and Thread! I've been itching to stitch this since it arrived a few months back and I determined last week to get started on it. Well, once I'd started I couldn't stop! I didn't actually have too much stitching time last week as it was 1/2 term but when I did get time this is what I stitched and I enjoyed every minute of it. I've also made a start on Blackbird Designs Snow Garden as part of a SAL…I want to get those lovely houses stitched and not have them sitting in my stash basket gathering dust. As you can see I did make a solitary, rather lonely klosje but at least it's one more to add to my total 😀


There was a sale on at my LQS last week – it was their first anniversary of opening so I had to pop along and see what was what! I had thought to get some blue fabrics for the Clamshells and these are what I came away with…


Look at the cute kitty – I'm going to try and fussy cut her for the clamshells. Over in the far right hand cornder of the picture is a lovely blue fabric with some golden leaves in it, I almost cut it out of the picture altogether! I need to have a little visit to the stash because I recall a few blue fabrics from the last time I had a good tidy up in there. 

I've one more little task that I want to play at this month – Jenny's Jeans Challenge I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to make a bag…I think there are some dilapidated jeans in John's wardrobe that I can make use of so I think I'll go and hunt those down.

The weather is just awful here today – very humid and on and off rain…not a good day to have washed curtains and bedding at all, I've run out of indoor drying space and I fear that my hexagon stitching time tonight (cricket match) may be cancelled altogether if much more rain falls 😦
