Still not a lot of craft happening here. There are so many others things taking my attention at the moment. This coming weekend its the Horticultural Show and then i'll be away for a little holiday.
Also, the new library service is coming to the community centre mid October so that's been taking up a lot of time with preparation and organising of that. The Book Borrowers will still run as normal, but slightly different to how its been since I started it over 2 years ago...time for change, I hope it works well after all the hard work that's gone into it.
The reveal for the August challenge was the last Sunday in August, mine was a little late. A quick stitch free design chosen by Christine from Woollen Sails. I cheated and used a white fabric so i didn't have to stitch the snowman, just his outline and then did a quick simple finish too!
A little progress on Silent Night, the church is now all stitched since I took this pic - I had planned to blog last week, but time escaped me and I've not got round to taking another update pic. I'm using aida to stitch this as I had the perfect grey in my stash and didn't want to order fabric when it wasn't needed plus I have an idea for finishing it that might need the added stiffness of the fabric.
Half a little flower border added to Irish Garden. Of course, last night saw the launch show of this years Strictly Come Dancing, so Strictly UFO stitching will be happening again in 3 weeks time when the show starts and continue each week up till Christmas. Lots of ladies will be joining in with this to make progress on their forgotten projects whilst watching the glitz and glamour of the show each weekend. Stitching something you don't enjoy so much doesn't seem half so bad when watching and humming along to this lively show. Perhaps you would like to give it a go too?
A little lavender stuffed owl was the Craftshare project. A fun evening, mine turned into a little girlie owl ...... she's going to be a little extra gift for a friend who has a birthday later this month.
September and the start of the new school year. My granddaughter Isabelle will start in the pre-school nursery now she is three and a half. It certainly brought a tear to my eye when she came to show me her new school uniform. How time flies ......
A couple of things to look forward to as the autumn moves in. The Craftshare group are off on a bus trip, we're going to the Hobbycraft Show in November and there's a stitchers meet up being organised too.
Thanks to those who still come to visit even though I've not had a lot to show you over the summer months. I do appreciate your visits.
Time for me to have a blog read catch up session and see what you've all being doing this past week or so.
Till the next time ....
