With all this talk of the Olympics, i think i thought i was competing in the 'finish it off' category this weekend LOL
Yesterday the weather was plenty of heavy rain and it was quite dark so i spent a good part of the morning reading and finish number 1 was a book i had been recommended by Barbara Erskine called 'Hiding from the Light'. It was a good read and i really enjoyed it even though it was a bit scarey in places. Looking through my own bookshelf i couldn't decide what to read next and decided a trip to the library was in order to see if they had any others by the same author. I notice they have a 'Use us or loose us' sign up, so i better make more use of them. The new one is called 'Kingdom of Shadows'.
In the afternoon, i stitched some more of Autumn, and this morning i had finish number 2. The colours in this one are gorgeous. I thought you might like to see how they are looking now i have 3 of the 4 completed. Please excuse the folds in the fabric as it needs pressing but i'll do that when they are all finished.
The JA monthly challenge piece was finish number 3 this afternoon, all stitched and ready to be made up. I think i've decided what to do with it, but of course that could all change when i sit down and start to make it up!!
A new start was called for i thought...
I found this little beauty hiding in my box, it scares me to think about putting it together but i have to stitch it first so maybe i'll pluck up some courage as i do that! It's a bit of a whacky project so i thought i would use some bright and funky fabric and thread, what do you think of these colours? - honest answers please - no offence taken LOL. I need to grid the fabric for all the pieces to be in the right place and make maximum use of the fabric but wasn't in the mood to do that boring bit this afternoon so it didn't get started but i did make another new start instead.... Elizabeth Designs 'Winter' was all kitted up and ready to go so that is now on the frame and i have an N stitched up, i am so looking forward to having all 4 of these stitched and framed.
The mini mystery item arrived from TS yesterday, this month its a toughie. I really need to get my thinking cap of for this one. Post out isn't till Aug 30th so i have some time to think about it. I wish i could show you it for your ideas LOL
The suns come out now, how typical now its late afternoon, DH is asking whats for tea, so i better sign off here and feed him before he faints from starvation...
Hope you all had a good weekend
