I popped to the village today, I wanted some ribbons and our local shop has a good selection, all these are purchased off the reel, so you get as much as you need, Plus a couple pieces of fabric came home with me.
More baubles, these are really quick to stitch and I am using retro colours.
The wet ring around the top right one is Fray check, it's like water, I dribble it around my stitching and when it is dry I can cut it out.
Here is a basic test run for my cards, the sign is just one I found in my stash,
I printed this myself.
It does have the effect I am looking for.
I spent yesterday afternoon in the garden, the corner of the decking next to the herb garden is looking good again. Every thing is planted, and double watered, Sam was here and wanted to help. He was surprised how many of our green tomatoes had turned red, and another small bowl full found it's way into our fridge.
Evening in tonight I hope to stitch another bauble, I will take stitching away with me, and a book, hope to get plenty of relaxation and rest.
The design I was trying to track down here it was published in a German book Advent im Winterwald (Advent in the Winter Forest), it is very hard to get hold of, but I have tracked the designs down and it in my pile to stitch.
