How are you all?
Headaches gone? Tiredness fading...amazing how these ailments come around after new year teehee. Not for me though. I was in bed at 9 pm with Disneys Beauty and the Beast and my crochet.
Thank you all for the lovely comments regarding my own. I have taken them all on board.
My WIP is 1797 Ship Sampler by Carriage House Samplings..sorry, I should have said.
I put numbers in a hat and let Paris my rescue pup chose one. It was a disaster and you will understand why there are no photos when I explain that she thought the numbers were there for her to eat. She grabbed them and I had to tussle with her to get one out of her mouth. Yuck. The one I managed to rescue was indeed number one which is McKenna. Well done.
Well, yesterday was lovely. Youngest had a cold so lay on the sofa feeling sorry for himself. Eldest ds was still out; he had his first New Year night with friends (he is nearly 18, you have to let go at some stage...I didn't phone him a million times at all!)
So I got to make and make and have so many ideas!
Meet Buttons, the owl pin cushion. The ruler next to him is 6 inches so you can see his size. He is filled with polyfill (to keep the weight down) and his wings are padded so you can put your pins in them and he will hold on to them.
I also made Mrs Bakewell (cherry fabric lol)
She too is a pin cushion, or just plain cute ornie (not a toy).
Mrs Bakewell is a lovely, plump, gentile character. She is a Cherry Island Red hen, and was oh so broody so.......
I had to make her some babies. They too are Cherry Island Red hens but are still cute and yellow because they are babies.
They will have to be rehomes together...I cannot part mummy and babies. Though truth be told, I will find it hard to part with them full stop, but part I must because.........
I HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED TO DO THE SPONSORED WALK!!!
OMG I am so excited. 112 kms. Just got to fill in the paperwork and then I can get sponsorship!
And buy blister plasters lol. I have put details down below.
In-between sewing yesterday I also finished a dishcloth for my lime green kitchen.
My tension is a bit tight when I start but these dishclotes are a great way to learn to crotchet...very forgiving.
I have ideas of things I want to make today...in fact my mind is buzzing. I am not going to sell them as such: I am going to swap them for donations with a minimum donation suggested which will also cover postage.
And for myself I am going to join in with Terry's Quilting sew along. Material has been ordered and I am also very excited about this.
I have made a start on Santas Village..small and insignificant. I am struggling with doing it all on one piece of fabric so may make it individual..will have to see.
And don't forget, we have a smaller project SAL going on here, where we are starting Patty's design of ' Lets Stitch'.
Phew...take a breath.....Info on the walk follows this; I am giving you the option of stopping now lol
Have a lovely week everyone xxxx
some of you are aware that I wanted to walk to raise money for cancer
charities and I had intended to walk from my home to Galway to raise
awareness of how far people have to travel to undertake treatments here
in Ireland. Health and safety and the N17 however do not go well
together and as a lone female, I felt I had not survived cancer to then
get run over by a drunken tractor
driver. Luckily something else has come up and I have applied to do
the 112 km Camino Pilgramage trail walk which is being organised through
the Irish Cancer Society.
