Its Oh SO Quiet! - Bing Bong!

Posted by tracy watkiss at 11:56 1 comments
I know I am quiet on here lately but I just keep forgetting to post, I am busy making things though and its not all Cards - Shock HORROR!!

My winter evenings always see me wishing to hibernate and this year is going to be no exception and evenings sees me knitting. I have on the needles this very minute a lovely warm and cosy Aran jumper for myself. Just got the sleeves to go so will try to post images later.

The piccy I want to show you today though is a work in progress for me, I am slowly - very slowly learning to quilt.  I only get 2 hours maximum a week to put to this new skill, but I am enjoying it immensely.

At the moment I am making a Christmas table runner, and to make it even harder I have actually hand drawn the holly design I wanted to use for my decoration.  (Why make life easy for myself?)

The seed bead berries - where every seed is sewn on separately.

Till next time
Huge Hugs

I am so sorry this post is a tad late, I seem to be forever chasing my own tale lately, the online shop is getting busier and busier, as is the bricks and mortar shop.

Now I made both cards for todays challenges in plenty of time, just forgot to pop them on a post DOH!!
Went weight watchers last night another 1lb off (4 stone exactly gone for good)
Went swimming nice and early this morning (50 Lengths),
Shined my halo ------- then it slipped and realised the date, and that I had not done the blog posts, made my mums wedding anniversary cake, made the baby shower invites I promised my daughters friend or iced the cake I promised my mum! OOOPPPS!

Any how on to the first of todays challenges.

We had to follow a sketch set by Linda and she is offering an SU set of stamps too one lucky participant, why not pop on over and try your luck!
I used, A Christmas Humphrey Stamp, and a lovely Marianne die to do the snow effect.
