The MOTH and I chose this pre-printed Sashiko Celtic Christmas Tree from Indigo Niche stand at the recent craft show. It came in either Red, Blue or the lovely Green Linen and a skein of Sashiko thread of your colour choice. We choose the green & cream and I feel it compliments this Christmas project well. It was beautiful to stitch. I had this lovely Christmas fabric for the binding and it has a bit of gold thread to bring life to the binding. The beading took ages, luckily I had some beading needles in my kit or it would not have been finished so quickly. It just needs alight iron and it is ready to hang in December. I have a lovely hanger in the back room I think will be perfect for it.
I have also been catching up on my blog reading and comments. Nothing worse than letting life get in the way of craft and blogging.
The MOTH and I are still working on our bedroom – more MOTH than I as I am still in the legal section of my course and still on study overload.
The train quilt for our grandson is momentarily on hold as I have run out of thread and it is on order – my luck I choose the one spool for my free motion that was difficult to get and I am over half way. Anyway I should be back to it at the end of next week. A lesson learned – FMQ takes heaps more thread than just a few far spaced curved lines.
Accident or Awkward is my middle name – last week as I went in the bathroom – my ankle rolled and I went zooming across the bathroom, landing with both palms taking most of the fall and my left knee carpet burned on the little rug. Luckily I did not kit my head on the pedestal basin, however I did sprain my ankle (again) and jarred my entire body so bad I thought I was going to be ill with the shock and pain. I have recovered now – however am still sore and tender in a few spots.
That’s it for the moment – happy stitching
