New Years Eve. The last day of 2008. My Dads birthday.
Happy Birthday Dad, I love you. x
We're all cosied up here, on this exceptionally icy new years eve. Today we woke to a beautiful hoar frost. No pics though as it has been too foggy all day, I'll try tomorrow if it still looks as pretty.
Well I've finally finished child #2 patchwork quilt and I am rather chuffed with it, as you can see!
It took me three evenings to hand stitch the binding down, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. My little finger tips were sore when I'd finished but I do love stitching by hand.
I've got to be honest here, I didn't embroider these. These embroidered squares were cut from an old tablecloth bought from a car boot sale. I did embroider the little 'with love' message and my name and date on the reverse though. (hopefully one day it might be a family heirloom)
It's set me off. I want to do some applique and hand embroidery. Only I'm not quite sure what to do.
Maybe a small wall hanging or even a quilted wall hanging. I've brought my sketch book out to have a doodle, to see what I can come up with.
Right. That's all from me for this year. I wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year, and thank you for all the comments you leave and the support you give. It's been very much appreciated.
You give my days a little sparkle.
