I love a quick stitch and finish project, you get such satisfaction from stitching something and finishing it in one session, is that mad or are you the same??
These cute little tucks were a competition win from Joann last year. I'm sure some of you have seen Joann's superb skills with the sewing machine before, she makes a lot of the mini exchange items for us at TS. The designs are from the 1998 issue of World of Cross Stitch. Can you imagine all the space i would need if was still collecting every issue of the magazine 10 years on!
Back to the dentist we went on Monday, seems DH has the hugest of abcess under the cheekbone so is on even stronger meds, no work again this week then. Talk about bad timing, the hospital rang to schedule his urgent 'other operation' for this Friday. We've had to decline the appointment and its been rescheduled for Friday 7th November. He'll then have a few more weeks off work. Being self employed its not good, but i'm sure we'll get by. Christmas will have to be an old fashioned one this year with lots of handmade goodies for the family and even further cutbacks for us here.
Tonight it's the stichy club and i have kitted up a nice new project to take with me, something i have been meaning to stitch for a while. I'll save that for another time though when i can show you a WIP piccie.
