It's a sunny Monday here in good ole Ireland-yes, the sun actually is shining, but it is shining in our home too-today was the first day for sometime that we haven't had tears in Nursery school, oh am I soooo relieved! Hopefully we are on the way up and my mornings can now be spent catching up on some very much needed housework (I have been sitting outside Nursery in the car,every morning, since the beginning of September.....and my housework is suffering big time!lol) but when my babe is happy-I'm happy:))
I don't have a big lot to blog about, with regards to my own creativity, but I have wanted to get on to show you the lovely Fall gifts I received from my friend Christine (Preferably Prim)-I'm sure you all know her by now and the lovely handwork stitching she does,
Take a look at this beautiful pinkeep pillow-love the colours and the stitching,
And just take a look at this prim shelf-sitter; all hand stitched! Thanks again Christine, I love them all:)
There hasn't been a big pile of stitching going on here (you will see now in a moment) but this is a Buttermilk Basin pattern, I have been working on, now and again. I'm not sure whether or not to frame it, as the pattern gives, or, to make it into a pillow-which would be quite large!
Here is why I haven't got much stitching done......yep, I have been playing with the dye pot again! I actually think I am becoming quite the squirrel-I seem to have the need to hoard nuts,oops-I mean wool for my favourite season-winter. Don't know when I will ever get them stitched, but I seem to need lots!
Don't forget that the colours are all darker than the pics show:)
I'm thinking Christmas tree's
and maybe some Santa's here
I can't seem to get a good colour on this photo, but they are a mix of pumpkin/rust and cinnamon and spice colours-some fall items and some gingers?
If you can excuse my ironing board with the towel I use to iron my wools to keep them fluffy, here is last weeks productivity!! I'm loving textured wools at the minute, as I'm sure you have gathered!lol!
This week, I really have to get some stitching done-even though I could sit all day and just look at those wools......maybe when I think I have enough I will be able to cut them up?? What do you think-will I ever have enough?
Have a great week,
Blessings, Shazy x
