Happy New Year!
Hi everyone, hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year, we had a quiet time in our home in France snuggled by the log fire, which we love.
I don’t know what it is about Christmas but I always like to start a Christmas gift for someone for the following year, in this case it was this lovely “Quilt Time Sampler” from Little House Needleworks. I started stitching it on Christmas Day and finished it on New Years Day, well actually I could have finished it on 31st December but I left a couple of stitches so that I could finish it in 2018 and sign the new year as the date of finishing.
This was also a quick stitch, I will be getting this framed in February in England and then I will put it away for the recipient for their Christmas gift for Christmas 2018. (more photos below)
I have decided to design another Mini Cat Calendar for 2018, all of the patterns will be free on my blog and the full pdf with colour listings will again be available in my Craftsy store here
I have just finished stitching January but not sure how I am going to finish this one, maybe a flat fold or a small pillow? You can see the photo below, the pattern will be free on my blog next week, each design will be published no later than the first week of each month.
I started to knit a lovely small cabled cowl using a free pattern from Ravelry, it was so easy, only one row of cables in this one, but very effective! You can see the free pattern here
(Photo below) I am loving the colour of this, it will compliment my navy coat quite well and I am thinking of making some matching gloves in the same yarn.
Hands on Design cross stitch pattern monthly series available from the Fat Quarter Shop.
I am a little slow getting my pillows finished for the monthly series but I am on with December now and soon January’s design will be arriving through my letterbox!
Just need to stitch these cute buttons onto the front and then I can make it into a pillow.
Until next time, happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
