Just a quick one to show three things that may interest you.
I was on someone's blog (might have been Lisa's) and found this link to a 15 sided biscornu. How cool is this. If you're not into biscornu and whipstitching then don't bother to look but I think I will definitely try one of these sometime. It's in Russian with a translation which is a bit strange in parts but it has extremely good photos.
Secondly, take a look at Sharon's blog Cross Stitch Happy. She designs lots of freebies and this new one is amazing. In fact when I first saw it I thought "Just Nan" but it's not - it's her design and free for all. It is an amazing hummingbird scissor case and fob set. Go on - it's free.
Thirdly, I have set up a blog for the Needleprint Beatrix Potter Quaker SAL due to start January 09. Sadly, this pattern is now out of print. A short time ago Jaqueline Holdsworth from Needleprint decided to sell some of the patterns as PDF files which is how I was able to get a copy of it. I don't know if she is still selling them or not. You could always pop over to the Yahoo group and ask. If anyone wishes to join this blog just email me hazelhenry @ hotmail . com (omit spaces) and I will send you an invite. Please note: I have only just set up this blog and it is in it's early stages. Everyone welcome who is intending or has already started this wonderful piece.
I don't know why I don't read blogs more. Well I do know - it's time sadly, but everytime I do I get so inspired. I have a Mirabilia Christmas angel in a magazine somewhere which is very blue and sparkly and I have decided I want to stitch this one and make it into a pinkeep. Just need to rummage through my hundreds upon hundreds of mags to find it.
Happy stitching everyone.
