UK ladies know of Bagpuss and Lizzie Mouse and her song about fixing things and making them as good as new.
I'm so glad she lives here with me, she's been such a help today. After 4 hours of glueing, cutting, sewing and stuffing we both needed a nap this afternoon. A good job you weren't here to witness me reading aloud and talking to her and asking if i was doing it right on the first part of the Peacock Chair LOL
Patience was needed after glueing the templates to the craftboard and waiting for them to dry.
I didn't stitch on the 'LHN SAL Wool Needlebook and Scissor fob' last week so pulled that out and started the border for the scissor fob. I wish the camera would show the true colour of the fabric as its so nice, its hazelnut from Silkweaver and a really rich brownish colour.
Weekend stitching and finishing March monthly ornament. The chart for this is from Gift of Stitching online mag Issue 11 December 2006. Marie-Chantel Lord from Sweet Stitching designed it. Just after the holiday season beaded chains were reduced to 10p at a local DIY store. I thought they might look like holly berries around the edge but not so sure now its finished?
A finish also for the album of the monthly challenge but i cant show you that till reveal day at the end of the month. I think i've been good and deserve a new start....
