Well I do think an update is in order, don't you? I haven't posted in over a week but that's because I have been doing some serious stitching. Well that and doing the whole bonfire night thing and freezing our behinds off at the local display. Yep that was good. I refrained from making the rocky road eaties again and even swerved from putting on a crusty pie top on my hotpot! Well, I'm at target now you know so I have to be careful to stay there - this time!
So first up is my CDC progress. If you have followed me for any length of time you will know what an absolute hell I have had with this project and have not enjoyed stitching it muchly. However, recently, I have had some sort of a boost and have not been able to put the thing down! I have had to save a bit to do in December as it is now part of an SAL which I think has been extremely helpful in me getting this thing done!
This silk (Thread Gatherer silk n colors) has an amazing sheen to it. I have tried to capture it on camera but I can't really do it. When you turn it, the whole thing changes. I can't really describe it but I have never experienced it before with thread.
I have also been working on HAED Rose SK. So much detail in this one - it really makes my eyes water at times. Loving the way it is turning out. So so pretty.
Got the latest copy of Country Homes and Interiors the other day - oh what an issue. If you haven't got it - run RUN and get it. It is gorgeous and filled with drooly christmassy things. Here's a taste:
and if you're wondering what that is floating in my hot choc - it's marshmallows - yummo!
Really warmed me up. We've been having some freezing cold weather here. You remember my cold feet?? Lookie now:
Thanks to MnS. Perfect cosy toes. Keep warm dear friends. xx
