Frantically stitching tonight - I've stitched so much today - left it until the last 2hours 10 minutes of 11-12-11 to start, stitch and finish my Decem-baa sheepie!
I made it with a minute to spare (although, due to a 5 minute phone call - the beads on the tree were stitched just after midnight - but it was all stitched in time!!!!
These three sheep take it through to 94 sheep for the year - do you think I can make it to 100 ???
I was very busy this afternoon - If my boss or my workmates are looking at my blog.........turn away NOW !!!
You've not shown interest before.......why start now?
...................... go on.....
I don't want to spoil your surprise....
OK - I was putting the last stitch into this Map Wallet, when I realised that most people nowadays use GPS. Talk about a blonde moment! Well, I hope my boss likes this anyway - drafted my own pattern (read: make it up as I go along....) I'm really pleased how this turned out - I hope he can use it anyway.
And for somebody who's name begins with 'S' - While I was stitching this small sheepie design, I had always intended to finish it off as a tote-bag. Once again, drafting my own pattern (read: as above..) I made this little bag up and I'm so pleased with it. It is fully lined, with a small pocket inside, as well as the pocket on the outside with the sheep panel. It's well and truly top-stitched and not likely to fall apart in a hurry.
Another project went flying - it wasn't working out at all well, the weight of the fabric was annoying me, so I've shelved that project for another time - I'll rescue the fabric and use it on something else.
Next, I grabbed some ornaments that were finished last year (or the year before) and got them ready to hand sew some embellishements on to be hung from the tree.
A very busy stitchity Sunday. How are your stitching plans going for December???
