My little bit of this big World

Postie has been

Last week I asked about plastic hoops and Julie from KC Court offered to send me some, so today I had her parcel, and typical of our blog friends she sent me the following. I want to say a big thank you, I know if I am not able to use them all my daughter Fliss will take some.

I have done some more to my tigerskin, I am stitching it on 22 hpi, instead of 18 hpi, but even though it's smaller than the pattern, I'm thinking it's still bigger than I want, but I am going to finish it and if it is bigger than I need I will stitch another, smaller. The study in my dolls house is quiet small. Other than size, I love this design.

I was asked how I made the cushions from my last blog, whilst not wanting to put all the details on at the time, I did take a photo, just in case. I measured the stitched piece, marked the size in the centre of the cushion fabric, then I cut corner to corner, ironed back the flaps and placed over stitched work, pinned and stitched very close to the edges.
I have had a couple of busy days, visiting mum's and babies, Fliss and the boys are back from visiting Grandma's, so I spent today with them, Joshua is such good fun, and he has a great sense of humour, made his Nana laugh loads.

I have been given an award by Pam at Crochet & Cross Stitch Pattern Slut, thanks Pam, I don't have time today to blog, but wanted to thank you for your thoughts.
