Happy Wednesday to all my WOYWW friends. It's just a quick post from me this week cos I have two little special friends here for an extra day with Nanny Annie today.
On my desk today is...
The, nearly finished, latest poppy picture. I have now machine embroidered it and added black beads to the poppies. I have put it under the mount here but want to buy a red inner mount to fit it because I feel that would set it off better.....if anyone knows of a good on line site that sells picture mounts could you please let me know.
I've just enlarged part of it for you to see it in more detail.
Here is Lexi modelling a pair of slippers her Great Aunty Jo made for her....they are really warm and cosy but she refuses to keep anything on her feet....we are now looking for little slipper socks to see if those will work.....she is only a size 2 1/2 so it is really hard to find anything small enough.
A quick peep into my knitting basket....I'm knitting a scarf to match a pair of Lexi's mittens.
I have started working on an idea I've got for my Christmas cards.....I've ironed Vylene to the back of some gorgeous dyed green fabric I bought at the quilt exhibition on Sunday to stiffen it [my last post shows some pics I took there]. I then machine embroidered it, cut it up into Christmas tree shapes and have then hand embroidered some stars on it with some of the fab random dyed thread I bought at the exhibition too [......actually this is the thread Jo bought for me as part of an early birthday present....thanks Jo I love it].
Well folks that's it from me for today. If you leave me a comment I will do my best to pay you a return visit in between nappy changing, playing, feeding etc etc
