Yeah right. So why is it 1 degree celsius, raining icy cold rain with bits of sleet in it then? So with the fire roaring and wrapped in my fleecy blankets, I finished my new design. Of course, the lack of light means rubbish photos but you can get the gist.
And on a teacloth in the polytunnel whilst trying not to crush my seedling coriander!
The way the weather is at the moment, I fully expect Christmas to get here before the sun shows its face!
This is stitched on 32 count Belfast linen, Flax using DMC threads.

This was a really fun stitch but boy, did it make me crave sweet things!
Thank you for your emails etc re: the fundraising. It has been a busy few days re: thinking about fund raising. I'm sure you are all aware of the wonderful facebook campaign which has been going on and which has raised so much money for research.
So I am going to make the plunge. I'm going to make various things and put them on a seperate page on the blog and when I have enough I will open the 'just give' pages and people can make donations and go into a draw for the prizes.
I would love for others to take part, so if you would like to donate a prize, please feel free to send me a photo of the item you would like to donate and I will add it to the prize page. You can either send the item to me direct or once the draw is held, you can send it to the winner yourself.
I washed the quilt again and realised I hadn't cut the frayed edge enough..it is now frilled beautifully. It's hard to get it to look as good in a photo as it does in real life but I showed it to some ladies last night and they fell in love with it. I know it's new owner will as well.
So I had better work on some fundraising prizes hadn't I! How exciting!
I have ideas for crochet, some patchwork ideas and of course some cross stitch. Anything really to take my mind off this miserable, horrible weather!
