Putini Putini is a designer I'd never come across until I found this chart when we met up at the Nimble Thimble last October. I wanted a change from my usual Sunday stitching on my Calendar Girls last week and I had everything needed for this cute snowman.
You Warm my Heart by PutiniPutini
I had him stitched and finished into a little pillow by Wednesday :-) I forgot to take a photo of the backing but I used some black gingham, which I already had.
I think he's the cutest thing ever!
Arthur was two on Tuesday, no birthday parties of course, but he didn't seem at all bothered.
We went to Jenny's and stood apart in their garden for a little while so we could see him. I did manage to get a couple of photos of him but he never keeps still. He was quite happy making his own entertainment with the watering can and collecting bits of grass to feed the guinea pig
Marks gone up to Stevie's today to do some pointing up on the brickwork on their house, he won't have to be in contact with them so it's ok.
I've been entertaining myself by making banana bread.
Before last week I had only ever made one of these before and I didn't really like it, but I didn't want to throw away the bananas that had gone well past eating, so had another go.
I found this simple recipe .
I also added some chopped walnuts and a couple of teaspoons of caramel flavouring and it tastes delicious.
Last time i also added some chocolate chips too, but i didn't have any of those left today
Well, best go and make a cuppa and taste test this cake and have a little afternoon stitching :-)
See you soon
PS. just in case you are wondering, we are social distancing, those photos were taken much further away than it appears, I cropped them once I 'd uploaded them onto the computer, as I did with the Easter photos on my previous post.
