February 15th

We are half way through the month - where has it gone?
I have completed the two pieces I showed you earlier this year. One of which is in my new Header.

The photos above show the front and back of a piece I have yet to name.  (Anyone got any ideas?) The back is an old napkin and the initials do not mean anything to me but they looked so beautiful I had to leave them in place. The front is a runner with pieces of tea dyed silk Kantha stitched in place. It has wadding sandwiched in-between which created the texture in the centre.

Here is the third antimacassar piece I have done, sorry the picture is not very good. It will be going to an outside exhibition soon as I want to see how it distresses.

I'm off to London soon to see Guy's and Doll's. It gives me a chance to connect with my family down there so I am really looking forward to it.

February 7th

Well the first week in February 2016 has been a busy one. First I finished my small crochet cushion. 

Then we went for a couple of days in the Lake District for my birthday. I was a bit worried that the weather would be against us but I needn't have worried, it was fine and still despite being cold. We had a walk around Derwent Water and here are some of the pictures I took which show the damage the high water levels and storms have done.

It wasn't all bad, the views were tremendous and I just love this tree.

Then we went up to Ashness Bridge. Some great markings on the stones.

Back home and I have finished another antimacassar Kantha stitched piece and another one that has been hiding since before  Christmas will be completed soon.

I have also found some more Caleido lace weight yarn and have started a new mini granny square throw to match my mini cushion. So all in all this week has been pretty busy.
