D is for Darling Debbierose Darning, Ha ha Darning is something I never do. Once upon a time we mended socks, now they seem to get tossed. The only darning I do, which is rare would be on a hand knit or crochet piece to darn the ends in. If you do partake in the ancitne art of darning? DO you use a Darning Egg, I have seen a few in antique posts and find them very interesting. At great way to not stab yourself during repairs.
Please hop on over and follow the wonerful SAL members, their blogs and posts will not disappoint. Now if you pop over to my fellow SAL members, I know you wil not be dissappointed.
C is for Calico Cat – now most of you know I am not a Kitty fan, although I did adore stitching the little Clematis flowers, or whatever they are called. C also stands for another of my craft loves Crochet. Thats for another post as I am working on a special project.
Please pop over an see that stunning work and crafts from my fellow SAL members. I will see you in 3 weeks time and hopefully another letter completed.
B is for Button. This is a cute one, as I am fond of buttons. Plus I have started the border of the surrounding ones as I will go round. My MOTH had a chuckle as he also noticed I am a friend of the Victorian Button Collectors on Face Book. They have a brilliant display. I recall playing in the Nana’s button box as a child. We would choose our favourite and substitute it for the playing pieces on the Monopoly Board.
Memories – gotta love them, makes me all warm and fuzzy on the inside.

Here is the letter A. I wonder what other craft items you can add to the list for A is for applique – can you add to the list …

My friends Bubba is now 5.5kg, smiling and both Mum & Bub recovering well after a rough greeting into the world. Now I need to get the machine out and finish this wall hanging! I am giving myself an achievable deadline – 3 weeks and the next post in this SAL.
Now onto my original stitchery, Save the Stitches. When I can locate where I filed it amongst the WIPS etc it will turn up. In the meant time I have chosen another project.
