This has been a great month for some grown up crafting. I’ve cut back on my blogging which means lots more time for making the things that make me happy rather than hours spent staring at my laptop.
I completed Wild Olive’s Winter Stitching Club pattern which made a really lovely table mat or wall hanging. I loved stitching each hexagon and making them into puffy hexies. I think my favourites are the embroidered Christmas jumper and quilt.
I’ve completed some smaller projects too, such as a cute little gingerbread man I bought from Asking for Trouble ages ago. I stitched the gingerbread couple which was a freebie with the Christmas Prima Makes mag too.
So far I’ve made two ornaments from Betz White’s 2014 Holiday Stitch Along Ornament Club, the felt owl and felt Snow Globe in a cute embroidery frame. I joined last year and never got round to making any of the four projects so you can see I’m making an extra effort to take part and actually make the projects this year.
I’ve just started work on a special handmade gift but it’s quite ambitious and I’m not sure if I should be concentrating all my efforts on getting it finished for Christmas or not. The weeks seem to be flying past as usual so fingers crossed I have something to show next month too
