Whilst looking through my magazines to find some Christmassy designs to stitch for Granny’s Quilts (we are making about 28 for the kids so wanted to start early!!) – I came across a little reindeer design that I had started last year. As it was UFO Tuesday, I decided to kill 2 birds with 1 stone, and finished him off:
Of course, in this beautiful summery weather most of us have been enjoying lately, I didn’t want him to feel too out of place, so I stitched a little elf to keep him company:
And now it is back to Tut’ – I picked up all of the threads I was missing for this design…had to get Anchor not DMC, hope it won’t matter too much. WIll get a progress pic some time at the weekend when he starts to take a little more shape.
Well – as good as 😉
I haven’t decided how I will finish the border yet, but for now, I am calling this done! Really enjoyed it, but also glad to be finished and on to something new….which is, of course, Tut’!! I am finding this a really pleasant piece to work on so far, and I love the marbled aida. I will get a snap when I have more to show 😀
Pat of Granny’s Quilts kindly allowed me to share this picture of the quilt she made up using the set of dinosaur squares I recently stitched:
Didn’t she do a beautiful job assembling it? This, along with others will be donated to a child at Pat’s local hospital.
This little fella joins his colourful pals below, on his way to Granny’s Quilts – these squares were so much fun to stitch, there are a further 15 in the set that I plan to stitch later on….when I am caught up on a few other projects!!
Been A.W.O.L from blog-land recently….do have a little stitchy progress to report though.
I finished this bookmark for my partner in the summer-themed swap – I thought these beach huts looked great fun!
UFO Tuesday saw a little progress on an old favourite – Oriental Beauty:
And finally – I finished 2 more squares for the Granny’s Quilts group:
I am stitching one more of these (a fish) before I mail them, then it’s back to my Fruit Smoothie 🙂 Still waiting on my order for the fabric for Tut’, so at least that’s one temptation out of the way!! LOL
Makes Jack a dull boy, says my Quaker Gameboard – at least, I hope it will by tonight 😉 I decided to give this one an airing for UFO Tuesday, as I really am very close to finishing.
I really enjoyed working on this again, and plan to stitch for a couple of hours each evening now until it is done.
My latest Ebay purchase arrived this morning….as a big fan of Harry Potter I have been tempted by this book in the past but it was always a little pricey due to popular demand. Worth waiting, I got it for £3.90 🙂
Well, so in awe am I of Rachael’s gorgeous progress on Tutankhamum, I decided to go ahead and order the supplies….a couple of the items (including the fabric) could take up 28 days for delivery, which is kind of a good thing, will stop me giving into temptation, and may even give me time to finish the Smoothie. I love Egyptian designs, especially Tutankhamun…I am hoping this might motivate me to get back to the equally beautiful ‘Boy King’ that I have had in very slow progress for about 10 years….
