Picture heavy! You know you haven’t blogged often enough when you want to post all your pictures, but I lost everything and am now just finding the time to get everything back onto my computer.
I am forcing myself to sit quietly and stitch in the evenings….finishing the backstitch on this design. It has been on the fram for far too long. It is a project that I started with no goal in mind but I think I know what to do with it now!
I picked up these two kits at the Walmart in Montreal (There are no quilting kits or material in the nearby Walmarts). The first kit makes 4 different projects but enough fabric for two; a wallhanging, an apron, a messenger bag and pillow. I really like the messenger bag and I see a few in my future :). The second kit is for a small lap quilt, but the directions don’t call for batting :(…might be playing with that one. I loved the colours of it!
I went into a used goods shop (Value Village) and saw these kits. I have always wanted to do one of these stamped cross stitch kits but didn’t want to spend scads of money. These were a bargain. I saw my stitcher do some stamped pillowcases and it looked fun to do so…..:). I’m thinking that I will probably do it is pink, like the picture.
And since I only put up my tree two days before Christmas, here it is before I take it down:
So many handmade ornaments on this tree! I love it.
Here is a picture of my fireplace….didn’t get to put our family stockings on it this year but hoping for next!
I love my boxes next to the fireplace. I have now organized all my ornaments in them!
And here is my blue poinsetta! I have never seen one before and this one was saying “Peggy, Peggy, Peggy”
And do you notice our nice new banister! 🙂
Hopefully I will post more often, get into the habit…take the time to make the time!
