It was great to be back to join in with so many of you on FNSI hosted by Heidi this month..... thanks Heidi
I had done most of the work for this lovely little set before I left for my holiday
(a swap gift from Deb earlier in the year)
those stitcheries are 1 1/2" by 2"... so it is a really sweet set ...... I really just needed to finish it all off (and we all know how good it is to finish a project before starting another????)
I sat in the evening and sewed a bit more of this lovely little Gail Pan Christmas stitchery...... I am using Cottage Garden threads which I prewashed... since I had an unfortunate incident with thread bleeding previously..... I love the colours they have and the subtle variegation - but bleeding red is not a good look!
My body clock is out of order.... yesterday I woke at 4am and today it was 3.30am..... I am not amused!
Anyway being up early this morning I knew some Northern hemisphere FNSI'ers would be on the go so I joined in with them... and started cutting and preparing some fabrics to make Christmas bonbons.....
I didn't make myself snacks... even though desserts are my favouritist meal in the whole world
(I bet you never knew that!)
.... not only have my jeans shrunk with the English water but I found that something got into my wardrobe at home and shrunk the lot!!!
So no desserts! sigh... no sleep, no dessert...... lucky I still have some fabric!
Righto, Gotto Go.... I'm cutting out the wadding for my bon-bons....
