Happy Monday everyone, hope you’re having a good start to your week.
I want to show you some finishes that have finally happened!
So you may remember the knitting that I started, well I finished it in what I thought was record time (for me just finishing it was an achievement!) Here’s what it looks like finished.
I enjoyed doing it so much that I’ve started another one! I’ve been taking my knitting with me in the car and can squeeze in a good couple of rows while I’m waiting for my daughter to finish work. I leave a few minutes earlier than I have to, to make sure I can knit even a couple of rows. It’s amazing how much you can get done just squeezing some extra craft time into your day like this! This is the new scarf, which will be a Christmas pressie for a friend....
This was just two evening in the car! Just don't tell anyone how quickly they knit up!
My next finish was the Grain of salt design you may remember from here
...all finished! I'll detail everything in another post and hopefully I'll have this all made into a gift giving package. I have the idea, but just can't find all the little bits to make up the package....sooooo frustrating!
And after all your wonderful words of encouragement about the ice-creams, I did manage to finish it, and enjoyed stitching it too!
I just have to decide what to make this into….I’m thinking that maybe a small pillow, but it would look equally as cute as a wall hanging for the kitchen! I can feel a Pinterest session coming on so that I can get some finishing ideas for this one!
And can you believe it…..another magazine in the post! I could get used to this! Sadly, I’ll probably not get another one for about a month! I can feel the withdrawal symptoms already!
World Of Cross Stitching Issue 193
Immediate Media company
This one is The World of Cross Stitching issue 193. The unusual thing about this issue is that although I contributed to the magazine, I didn’t design anything. Confused? Let me show you….
My top ten tips for holiday stitching! Ruth, the editor, asked me for my top tips for travelling with your cross stitching. So no design, just words. The picture they have of me is quite old, and sadly I have a lot more grey hairs and quite a few more wrinkles!! lol
Until next time...happy stitching!
