Saturday was a busy day with swimming lessons & a party to attend.
But I did get some time to finish my embroideries off!
I did them in a mini quilt style though on reflection I think I would have prefered to do the other way on both! Oh well, they are still OK. I really like them on the print snowflake fabric though! I had a hard time trying to decide how to stitch them a bit to stick layers together ... so I got some whiteish metallic thread & did some really rough stipple quilting on a select few of the snowflakes on each. I prefer the snowflakes on the penguins. They were nicer to replicate than the snowman fabric snowflakes. Last night I hand stitched the bindings & they were done.
No offence intended to the designer, but I really like mine on the printed fabric as opposed to the calico type fabric that comes with the pattern & is preprinted ready to be stitched!
Anyway, they are done now. I have been slowly adding knitted rows to the scarf I am stitching for the teacher gift this year. It's a slow process, though an enjoyable one, but a simple one to chuck in my bag & carry with me to knitting group or such things...
I have done a little crochet but am stuck on the most previous pattern for the CAL. May revisit that when I feel brave enough. The weather is changing & my craft mood is changing! Ekkk... So my poor brain will be crafty chaos again! What to do first!!! Decisions, decisions!
