Monthly Ornament

Augusts monthly ornament was easy to choose, another thats been around and needing doing for a very long time.

I do love Just Nan designs and Lady Scarlets Christmas is so pretty. DH bought me the sampler that acompanies this pieceLady Scarlets Journey for my birthday a few years back, now the little ones completed it might be an idea to find it.

Lookie what the postie delivered, its my sock wool order from The Black Sheep. These were a sale bargain, cheap compared to the others from my LNS. Service was fast and very good, postage only £1 so i'm happy to give them a recommendation. Enclosed was a free pattern for socks on 4 needles too, it doesn't look so bad when i read through it, so watch this space i might just give it a try and see how i get on.

Happy stitching, knitting and crafting

Beautiful ornie Julie, I love the ruffled ribbon edging

Love the edging, did you do that yourself? And I am knitting socks too, I have done the one and then had a mad cross stitch time so the other is on hold but will get it done..
Thank you for your comments, I am trying hard to count my blessings and not moan!!
