Crafting and Gardening

This week has been productive with a new bed in the side garden, our beautiful tree of no name comes into blossom, new plants for the Hebe bed and the lawn is looking good too.

DH has worked very hard just have to get to the dump with all the turfs, now that will be fun. A bonus the first half of the week was glorious, sun and warm, perfect gardening weather.

Making this week, now I had a list of things to do, maybe a bit over ambitious and not saying got them all done but did well all things considering. The deluge of the wet stuff on Thursday worked wonders as inside in the dry stitching, nothing could be better.


I love these and able to use odd bits of fabric. Done in the hoop but altered the design, as should have been all over free standing lace. Thought this would be too expensive to make to sell, with 2 hours of stitching. Cut out the lace bit and just jumped the machine to do the outlines and the centre place for a picture, with a pocket.


Now these should have been clippie holders but as I have sort of stopped doing kid's things, again altered the design to make into fun key fobs.


I love the sausage dog in this design, again done in the hoop and he ends up following his own tail, lol

Teriann from Pixies Rules added my rose quilt bag to her website, one thing rang a bell is she called me a stitch artist. Never thought of myself that way but thinking about it sums up what I do quite aptly. Therefore I now have a new title, thanks to a US friend and loving it.
