The other good thing about cutting fabric outside is that I don't need to clean the floor. I just swept these bits away.
Alas, the sun has vanished and we have had 2 days and nights of heavy rain, so I have been busy finishing these stitcheries. It is a Fig 'n Berry pattern called "Christmas Wishes" that I bought on the mystery bus trip. The fabrics for the sashings and borders have been washed and are hanging on the clothes horse. I am itching to finish this project soon.
As you know I am in Cheryll's 12 " Mini swap and the final one for the year was due to be posted yesterday! Life got in the way so I am a wee bit late but shall be posting it off to the recipient tomorrow. The theme is "Summer" and I couldn't find a suitable design that I liked so I decided to draw one up myself. I hope it is okay. Fingers crossed that ........will like it.
I was doing the happy dance when a little parcel arrived for me last week. It was from my stepson, the intrepid traveller abroad . He knows I collect thimbles and has contributed a few to my collection . Now I have more.
They are from Carcassonne, Equisheim, Strasbourg, and Alsace. Wooohoooo!!!
I hope you are enjoying some nice weather at the moment. I know it is getting cooler for some of my bloggy friends overseas and I am thinking of you all.
