Jack Frost has been overnight. It was a beautiful, freezing frosty morning. In between soccer games and sleepovers I've been doing some stitching. Another block finished for In Full Bloom.
And Tis the Season - Christmas Reindeer
I bought a fabric pack for Anni's zippered bag at the craft show and decided to make a start on it last night. There is only one downside to fabric packs - if you make a mistake and draw your appliqué design on back to front, AND cut it out wrong, well, there isn't any spare fabric left. So my ground is slightly spotty instead of sprinkled with daisies. Not really a drama, just annoyed at myself. I used to really love buttonhole appliqué, but I'm not so sure any more. Now that I can do needle turn I think it's my preferred method.
It kept me occupied whilst I waited for the eleven year olds to go to sleep. Why do we have sleepovers????
Some family time chopping firewood today. Hope you're keeping warm and enjoying the weekend.
