cushion making with scraps

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 ,,

Whats happened

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.

Anyone else having any problems or maybe advice

:( . So much going wrong

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,

Not long now for Christmas,

Have a fab day

Still having blogger problems now wont do spell check for me : (

Wonderful gift

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 ,

Thank you all have a great day,

I so need to

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,

Getting ready

Getting Ready well that is the plan i hope,

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
