Time to reveal this months challenge piece. The design this time was Petit Chat by Tralala. It was the perfect design to go into a coaster to add to a friends little birthday gift.
I added Twinnings Speciality mixed teabags, a floral mug, some tasty biscuits and the stitched coaster and put them all into a small indoor planter that she could plant up with something colourful. It was then wrapped in some pretty cellophane and a big ribbon bow added. The album is full of lovely finishes this month, you can see it here. Well done ladies.
This month has flown by, but by the skin of my teeth i've managed to get an ornament stitched and finished for January.
I'm sure you all recognise this one from 2010 JCS ornament mag, it's by Little House Needleworks and called Happy Skater.
No idea of the colour of the fabric, a nice creamish handyed ornament cut in 32ct linen, very soft linen too, i wish i did know what it was LOL
Wool from Christine
DD finally made a decision what she wanted knitting with the lovely baby wool Christine so kindly sent to me.
She thought it was too nice to make a blanket so here's a little plain cardigan. It really is lovely and soft and knitted up so quickly. The peachy colour is gorgeous, we love it - thanks again Christine.
It's cough, splutter, sneeze in this house and guess what, it's not me! DH seems to have caught it now. I've told him i didn't share my germs someone else must have been really kind to him. He's fast asleep in bed on a Sunday afternoon, not at all like him so he must be feeling poorly. I'm keeping away from him, i seem to be improving with every day and i dont want it back again.
Our city has won an award for the Best Market in the country. It's such a great place to visit with so many different cultures and things on offer for sale. I think we take it for granted as its on our doorstep though. Do you have a market where you live? Do you visit and buy from it often?
Take care, i hope all is well in your part of the world.
