Over the weekend I suffered from an extreme case of procrastination over starting the new landscape and instead these happened...
I've never ventured into felting using those instruments of torture they call felting needles but I was gifted with a fun kit to attempt to make this little snowy owl for Christmas. I mustered my courage and had a go. Not perfect but I like him (and, remarkably, my fingers are still intact!). The kit was this one....
Then another squirrel went scurrying through my sewing room and I ended up creating a a book of samples of all the fancy stitches on my Janome sewing machine.
There are several pages similar to this.
- THIS is a rather different design that I really like. Might have to make one or two of these for the Christmas box.
- I'm not a shawl person but I might be tempted by THIS one.
- If your wooden spoons and cutting boards are in need of a little lovin' perhaps you'd like to make some of THIS (would make great gifts too!). Finding that little gem led me to finding THIS too. (never let it be said that sometimes you find the oddest things when you explore these links!)
- I thought THIS was an interesting article. Another of those 'who knew?' things!
