I missed the deadline for the reveal day, only a few days late, but still not good enough! Here's my version of the March choice from Pineberry Lane from 2011. I'm using up scraps of fabric for these this year and a piece of 18ct grey aida seemed the perfect background for this primitive design. A little Nordic type red ribbon brightened it up and the inclusion of two little silver jingly bells finished it off a treat.
The others in the March gallery are here.
The cable socks, a design from Christine over at Winwick Mum, were completed for DH. He's very pleased with them.
Another pair of socks in the West Yorkshire Spinners Hollyberry colour are already on the needles (forgot to take pic of those), I think I have a sock knitting addiction! They are so easy to pop into your bag and take along to hospital appointments - of which I have been to a couple recently and more to come.
Four Seasons Sampler by Giulia Punti Antichi has had quite a bit of attention.
Summer was finished....
and over halfway stitched on Autumn...
The whole piece looks like this now....
I don't know why this has sat in the drawer for such a long time? Like most of us, we acquire stuff and forget what we have and only find things when we are sorting out or looking for something we are sure we have and have put it 'somewhere'. I came across a few things when I 'found' this one, some old designs that really need to see the light of day and will be coming out of hiding this year.
I hope you are finding time for your hobbies. I know with the growing season starting in earnest now it means that crafting does not happen so much for those who enjoying growing seedlings and pottering about outside especially now the clocks have sprung forward here in the UK and you can be outside in the late afternoon sunshine till later.
Happy stitching, knitting, crafting and growing, i'll look forward to reading about your hobbies in your next blog post.
Love and blessings
