It looks as though the end of Winter may be in sight at last, this past week we have seen more of the sun with some lovely sunny days, still cold but at least it's brighter.
It's back to work for me tomorrow morning, I've had a lovely week off, I went out one day with Jenny and Oliver, we did lunch (and cake) in Bridgenorth, apart from that I've just been catching up on jobs and pottering around the house and just enjoying some home time.
A new start made it onto the Q snaps this week. I've had this chart since Christmas, I loved it from the first time I saw it and have been itching to start, I could resist no longer :-)
Baby It's Cold Outside - Heartstring Samplery
I know, I know, another Christmas / Winter theme, what can I say, I'm just loving working on Christmasy themes :-)
By the way, that's not a stain on the fabric, I coffee dyed it before I started, in fact I stitched the words and decided that the colour still wasn't right, so twice more it went into more coffee and then the oven until I was satisfied - I took a risk that the brown thread wouldn't run (and that I would burn it)...thankfully I was lucky on both counts and I'm happy with how it looks now.
Don't you just love that house?
Mmmm, the colour of the fabric looks different on this photo, the first photo is the more true colour.
Friday night is stocking SAL night, this is my progress on Oliver's stocking.
I worked on this an extra day this week too as I missed the previous Friday because of our weekend away. It was hard to put away this time, I was really enjoying all that red!
In-between the stocking and the pink house building I've finished my April AND my May ornament for the Christmas Ornament SAL, how organised am I lol. Just have to finishes them into ornaments this week ready to show you next week, well, the April one anyway, the May finish will have to stay hidden for a few more weeks :-)
Until next time, have a great week x
