Tiny update!

Winters almost over! Someone reminded me that this weekend we turn the clocks ahead! Oh no! That means I lose an hour of stitch time! Lol. I'm stitching in rotation on 6 Fat Men, nordic Santa, and Gingerbread Garden Cube, as well as I pulled out my Tatty Teddy afghan and did another shade of grey on Teddy Hugs. Can hardly wait to add his blue nose!!  I see so many wonderful stitches done by everyone! Congrats!! Love seeing it all as it's great motivation!  :)) ps, pics to update next time!

I started stitching the Gingerbread Cube just after Christmas and here's a pic!  Also included in the pic, two tea towels I received along with everything else in this pic from my best friend and her granddaughter!! What wonderful surprises! And if you knew me at all, like she does,  then you would really know that the great towel she stitched for me shows the truth!  I'd rather stitch for the whole day than take 15 minutes out of my stitch time to do the dishes!!  absolutely so funny!!!  As you can see the little Angel Mouse is sitting there waiting for me to finish stitching her cube to sit upon!  Also from another close friend, I received a fantastic gift, as I also love to bake - a Le Creuset batter bowel, a fantastic sifter, which I used because it was so easy too for my hand as it has the handle to turn on the side of it to sift,  and it sure made the zucchinni bread much lighter) and a whisk desperately needed as my other one fell apart in the summer.  She also gifted me this cool tool of a silicone hot plate/hot gripper, which is very very handy!!  Happy New Year everyone!! ps: I forgot to also say my best friend also loveingly stitched me a Mill Hill Polar Bear with wreath which I had on my Christmas tree this year but as I've packed it all away, I'll have to show you next year! It''s very adorable!!

Just Nan meeces!!

I hope Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays were had by all!  The time since I last posted was not  overly busy but I wasnt stitching for a while as I had my carpal tunnel release surgery on my right hand.  It was booked for February but a cancellation came up so I jumped at it.  So here are the two Just Nan Mice I have completed.  Jingle Mouse and Angel Mouse, they are very cute sitting beside my Gingerbread Mouse and my Halloween Witchy Mouse.  Im now working on the box that the Angel Mouse sits on, and a couple of other WIPs.  I wish you all a very Happy New Year for 2015 with lots of stitching done for the year!!  :)

Stitching and sewing.....

I''ve been stitching more on the World of Cross Stitching #VSAL which is coming along nicely,  and I finally put together my new sewing machine cover which is quilted blue fabric onto which I sewed the stitching I completed of Ursula Michael's Let's Sew.  I must say I like it very much compared to seeing the sewing machine plastic cover,  just personalizes my space a bit more,  :)

'Waiting for Santa'

Yes, always I'm waiting for Santa! Lol. I stitch Christmas and Winter designs all year round, they make me smile!  So here's a cutie by Helga Mandl, which I did adjust slightly because it is to fit in the purchased cross stitch plastic cup.  This 'Waiting for Santa' design was fun and quite quick and easy to stitch with only full crosses and no back stitching! Done on the 14 ct Aida that came with the cup.
