A Sort-of Craft Night

Cynthia dropped by Thursday for our weekly craft night, which is supposed to be on Tuesday but gets shuffled around A LOT, and this is what our creative fingers came up with. A box of parts from the local pet store helped.

And the other side.

Cynthia at least got a few more stitches into her baby blanket as well.

So far the cats have pretty well ignored it except for a couple of bats at the string but I hope when they realize it's here to stay they will get more curious.

WIP Wednesday 20 January 2016

Well, I'm a little disappointed - I was hoping for a finish this week or at least be at the backstitching stage, but I got attacked by a horrendous flu bug that left my neck, shoulders and upper arms just screaming in agony. It hit last Thursday and today is my first feeling human day, so hopefully I can pick up my needle tonight.

This is where I was last week

and here's what I managed to get stitched before the nasty virus got me.

The fabric colour is off again, but it was good progress.

And my snowman continues to grow!

Last week

and this week.

This picture has MUCH better fabric colour.

WIP Wednesday 6 January 2016

Welcome to the first WIP of 2016! I did get in a little stitching this week. Left off here last Wednesday

and he looks like this today.

The fabric colour is way off in both photos - it's a brown shade, not blue. But I'm happy with my progress.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy, stitch filled 2016 with lots of finishes!

This is a good time for talking about 2016 plans and mine are very modest this year.

I MUST finish my oldest UFO!

Here's an overall picture of the project (old).

And here's the last picture I took of the area being worked on.

This will be my focus until completed, then I will pick my next oldest UFO and work on that.

My only new starts should be smalls - ornaments for the Christmas Ornie SAL I belong to. I should be able to handle one a month - I hope!
