Been a while since i have been here , but it will be after christmas before im fully back .. so while im away i shall be busy x-stitching , patchwork and all other sewing hobbies plus i keep trying to knit and crochet..
Well i have been busy but not much to show in the way of finished sewing things, many things i have done are not completed yet , one or two that are have been finished are posted on the facebook page i have pop along to have a look ..
This photo of this horse Flynn is who my daughter Savannah has been having lessons on , he is so calm with her and she is hoping to go more often
Christmas tree i have done looks a bit of line down the left side, i shall make a second one and get the shape more better will add a nice red border to make a wall hanging ...
Just a start on a Charity square been a while since i have done these , hope to get this done today..
Well i say bye for now and hope to post soon with more projects done xxx
well i did manage to get some x-stitch done towards Christmas , and trying to use up all the scrap fabric i have to make all kinds of cushions, more are on my facebook page,
i like to have a go at making rag dolls as last one i made was when Savannah was young, so that will help use up the old fabric i use on rag doll clothes, as 80% of my fabric is old clothing and sheets,
weather has been too wet to spend time in garden , be nice to see some sunshine , miss working out in garden,
see you all soon take care
not very happy with this cushion, plus i need new inner pads as this one was too small and lumpy ..
some of the x-stitch here are also done from last year just a few new ones done ,,
The last 8 weeks since i was here last seams so much longer than 8 , where does time go, well most of my up-dates of all crafty stuff is more on my facebook page, but i will post later here as im going to start doing some Christmas stitching and quilting , and thats only 6 months away, oh no best i get a move on,
watch this space for up-date on what i will stitch next,
also take a look at my facebook page for other stuff,
Take care all.
I do not like the new look of the start up of the blogger , taken me a while to find things again, if it does get no easier i may just find a new web site to use a blog or give up and stick to facebook.
Due to the change in weather i have not been able to get much sewing of any kind done, as most of my free time has been trying to get garden sorted, here is just a few photos of whats going on at moment, more will follow in time , as also due to cost of food hoping to grow more of our own. so any ideas and tips very welcome.
Times are not great but I'm sure things will get better, just home life is a strain few home personal things going off,
wont be posting much fabric sewing things for a while as my sewing machine is playing up , done all i can to it, cleaned it changed needle, oiled it, played with the tension , not sure what else i can do, but it keeps looping and not doing proper stitches , any idea be grateful as i miss doing sewing but feel no point as the stitch is not right and be a waste of time, Good note i can still x-stitch and do my hexi quilt by hand.
I tend to update face book daily more than here so keep a eye on that if you don't see me here much,
The lighting was not good when taking this photo so i sorry for that.
What a week it has been at home, not had much time to do any x-stitch only a charity square that i do for SFPSFC , but my time this week has been mostly sitting at the sewing machine, got one quilt all done, and now going fabric crazy with lots of scraps doing crazy patchwork blocks, at moment not sure what i shall do with them, but just happy making them up till a lot of scraps are used up, then i will start thinking the next plan,
Still having blogger problems now wont do spell check for me : (
Life has had its busy days and quite ones , but here is just a little up-date of some things i have been working on over past weeks, still having blog problems takes forever to sort, hope to up-date more often,
Just a quick little hello at moment to say in the next week or so i hope to be around here more , my blog has been neglected for way too long, some off this is i lead a quite life, not much happens so no news to always to chat about, but i hope to post and chat more on my craft hobbies i enjoy,
Hope to see you all soon,
The other day i got a most wonderful gift from Karen s blog i have been following pop along to visit Karen too , What came was such a wonderful Christmas hanging which will just look great at Christmas time, and a wonderful card to go with it, Thank you Karen x x
This is what it was, love the patten design and the colour very autumn winter shades I'm sure you will agree,
Going to have to put them away till Christmas time, and now i really must try to start some Christmas stitching myself as i am always behind with them,
Been very busy at home with family and all other stuff, my garden is looking not so good due to dry weather but we cant use hose pipe due to a ban i have been told, so i think i will lose some this summer, new idea will be to get new plants that love dry weather ,
This is true i must spend more time on here, im doing a small x-stitch design today so will post up-date of it later then maybe that will get me going again as i have missed being here, Take care all, chat soon, x x x
After last winter months just gone when it was much colder and snow was the worse i have seen since i moved here 20 years ago, my plan for the next few months is to make lots of blankets , some will be for us and some for charity as i will carry on making the bits and bobs i make for charity groups, there has been more charity groups i like to help in the next few months some animal other more for people young and old,
As im not that great at quilting yet still got lot to learn i cant make the quilts for charity but send things towards them.
Im also going to learn how to crochet better as can only do the one kind of square which is in the picture. I will update more photos later , xxx
I need to spend more time on here , but life just seams to be so busy , but slowly I'm getting more sewing things done, here is just a few things i have done and doing now, also started a new x-stitch for Savannah show you that later when i have done a bit on it,
Not much on the sewing side of life to chat about, as this time of year garden is taking my time up, and time of year to spring clean, so only a photo of some small bits i have done last few weeks, soon i hope to be back sewing more,
And one of me fishing a little while ago when Mick went as he loves to go very often,
