Lack of patience

Are you like me? You start a project all rearing to get it done. Nothing big or fancy - just a great project which will be so handy.... then things get in the way or it seems slow... Then you get SO CLOSE to the finish and life just keeps getting in the way? I hope to finish this one tonight with my knitting friend.

Pleased with myself...

I have finally worked out the art to making pipping. Thanks to the internet. Should finish the project of nicely.

P.S. Jantine - do you see the pin cushion? It is the best!

Is it Christmas yet?

Done. Bits and pieces have been hanging around to make him for a few years. Major procrastination.

Just need to get a few bits for his stocking but no rush...

There seems to be lots of sheep lovin' here... Just had to do my version of Larry Lamb Pincushion from Hatched and Patched - who is by the way having a giveaway of her new book!

Time to share... the pillow

I can show it off to the world - the lucky lady has her version... The words took f.o.r.e.v.e.r to cross stitch. Forever did you hear!!!

My version is on our couch. I already have bought an inset for my pillow to come! Posty man knows I am waiting : o )

Cupcake anyone?

It is way to to large to eat on my own. Baked with instructions from here.

Got the knitting bug at the moment and a new knitting friend. Monday is our knitting together nights. Gosh the things we talk about - our husbands would flip!

Sheep lovin'

Just finished Shaun. He is such a cutie. Not sure what I will do with this just had to do it (are you guilty of this?). Go here for the pattern.

I have (woo hoo) finished cross stitching the Shepard's Bush Stocking for the Little Man. Do you know a good way to finish the stocking or will I have to think...hard?

Pillow peek

I have done the pillow for the swap and even better did mine as well.

I loved doing her - it was some idea that was floating in my head for a long time (see that to do list is l.o.n.g). Great it turned out better than I planned. Dont you love that.
