Cross-stitch, quilting, craft….

Peaceful Forest Finished

                                                                         peaceful-forest1

Here’s Peaceful Forest washed, pressed and waiting to go to the framers sometime this week.  This was a joy to stitch.  It would be lovely as a set of four with colours for all seasons.  I very briefly toyed with this idea….I’m a one night stand kinda gal when it comes to craft.  I use the pattern once, then go on to the next one….Which will be interesting when it comes to knitting the mittens as I’m making a pair for The Missus, too.  

There are no progress piccies for the mittens yet, as I’ve just savagely ripped back  tinked all my progress for the second time.  Sharon….Coni’s option is looking good!

As you know, I am rather partial to bags.  This is is a felted evening bag I made from wool roving and silk fabric with sequins a couple of years ago.  The handle was a scarf gone wrong.

The Missus has just got back from shopping and came back with this surprise for me…..I love it!  She said “I’m not a crafter, but I know that in craft the more gadgets you have the better.” She is an absolute sweetie and I know what I will be playing with this afternoon.

  1. ooh, look forward to seeing what you make with this toy. Peaceful garden will look lovely frames

  2. There will be no driving over the mittens now, we’re looking for you to do your always wonderful best. Love the Forest, it’s so darling, and I’m with you it would look great in all seasons but I wouldn’t have the patience to do it four times either. The new toy looks like fun, have you played with it yet.

  3. Gasp…don’t you dare throw that into the drive!

    Peaceful Forest is beautiful…I can’t wait to see it framed.

    Fun new toy…won’t that be nice for greeting cards!
