Here we are again, the last Sunday of the month and time to reveal this months challenge design and what i did with it.
Love by the Stitcherhood was this months design. I decided to make mine into a gift tag that would go onto DH's little valentine gift.
I do like it when i can use the challenge design as a little gift, it makes stitching it even more lovely as you know someone will be receiving what you've made. DH loved it but wanted to know when i had been secret stitching as he hadn't seen me with needle and thread in hand with this one!!
The album this month has lots of lovely finishes in it, you can see what other inspirational ideas ladies had for this design.
Monthly ornament also completed for February too, what a good girl i am LOL
I'm sure you all recognise this one from the JCS 2010 Ornament mag, it's by Brittercup Designs called Consumed by Gifts. I've changed some of the colours as i didn't have the required threads.
I have a friend who has twin girl black cats and this is exactly what they were doing over Christmas rifling through the gifts and playing with each other trying to get into the ones belonging to them under the tree.
Shores has also had some attention again this week and we now have sunshine, shame the same can't be said for the weather here today. After a sunny start, we now have the torrential rain thats been around for the past few days.
Block 1 completed this month, target achieved, so now onto Block 2 next month.
Even more leaping about with excitment as i also completed the last 2 motifs on the yellow portion of Floral Fifteen by Just Nan this week. Just the five on the pale green to stitch now before the fiddly making up bit.
I seem to have got a lot of stitching done during the evenings this week even though i have spent an awful lot of time during the day with my head in the accounts getting organised for the dreaded accountants visit next week. I hope you've had a productive crafting week and enjoyed your relaxing hobby too.
Before i go, just time to tell you about a parcel that's arrived here from Barb. It's addressed to 'Julie, Amy & the pink' and DD (Amy) will be here later to open it with me. I'll reveal whats inside next time ... i do like to keep you all in suspense LOL
