My Monthly Make

A super-quick post here.    I've had the picture on the flickr group for a bit,  but I forgot to put up a picture of my Monthly Make for January here on my blog.

So here it is.

My first ever stitchery - a vase cover from Homespun Issue No 96, designed by Lisa Pyke.  Although this is far from perfect I loved making it, and I think stitching is now my new favourite thing!

Until next time....

Take care

Back in the land of the living

It's been so long I hardly know how to find my way around the keyboard anymore!  A few things conspired to keep me away from here.  Firstly I have been going through a bit of a low patch,  not really feeling up to very much and only achieving the very bare essentials.  Also our laptop died and we had to wait for about a month before we could get a replacement.  And for the last couple of weeks Little Miss and I have been sick.  But I'm back!!  I have made a few commitments craft-wise for 2012 to motivate me to get some things done.

 I've participating in the House Ornament Swap

House Ornament Swap
at http://fourhappyviolets.blogspot.com/

and my swap partner is Cheryll at http://stitchingcubbyhole.blogspot.com/.  I'll be posting Cheryll her little house this week, I hope she likes it.  This is the first swap I have ever been part of and I'm really looking forward to seeing what Cheryll has made. I'm sure it will be lovely!

I've also joined the Monthly Make 2012 at http://thefeltfairyuk.blogspot.com

and the 1 XMAS ITEM A MONTH at  http://pinsandwhiskers@gmail.com/
One Xmas Item a Month
I've already failed at this one, but I'll be back on track next month.

Oh, oh Little Miss is waking up.  I will finish this later.  Till then..

Take care
