FNWF - January

The last official day of my Annual Leave - the last day I can sew for about 2 weeks.

I made the most of my last night of "freedom" - I prepared the fabric and selected the threads for a small cross stitch I hope to start (& finish) soon. - A sagittarius sign from Satusuma Street - look them up on Etsy, (aka Craftnik on Instagram) - the same designer as a project I did a while back - Pretty Little Sydney.  I hope to finally get this one "framed" this year...it is going in an embroidery hoop - as will this one.

The model was originally done on black - but I'm taking the less stressful option and doing it on white.

I also had a play on the embroidery unit of the "Monster Machine" - I saw this design in my LQS and of course had to have it - finally stitched it out over the last 2 days in between other projects.
This was another part of the learning curve - but I won't tell you what's wrong - it looks OK from here.   I think I will make it into a wall hanging.


Then I had some mending - DH pants - reeeeally??? doesn't he realise I am a Patchworker - not an alterations person...not worth a photo!

Finally I had some sewing paperwork to sort out.

Huge thanks to Cheryll for continuing to host & coordinate us for another year.  Hopefully I will get to visiting some of you over the weekend....comments might be short though!

  12. The machine embroidery is beautiful. I don't have that feature for which I am almost thankful as I could see myself turning into a fanatic!! I also have a mending pile. I try and pick things off it here and there. UGH is all I have to say about that.
