Hewoo one and all
yes I am here but .....well I cant use hibernating as an excuse cos downunder its been firey hot. and bears just completely collapsed from the heat- well bears have lot of hair- even though cos of the heat I had my long hair cut before Christmas- this was the second cut into the length and its almost there- one more cut and it will be there - I am getting used to having shorter hai and folks around here say its looking nice so I cant say no one like it- in fact a shop assistant here didnt even recognise me until I put in my bread order for the following day Wot a hoot hey?? the lovely young one told me its taken years off my face -oh Emma I love ya for that one compliment- best one yet!!
Anyway even though I was not keeping up with my blog I was doing something called sewing along the way.
I made 4 hearts to go with my pile swapped with ladies on the "Chain of Hearts group" and may even make more I still cant make up my mind wot I wanna do with them - grrrrr!! I used some ribbons I dyed myself the Torquiose I wanted to see how it looked up against other colours etc as I am doing a block for one of my darling friends on a list I adore.
Then I also made a square for my "Gathering Ladies" group! and I am really pleased with that block- I used a black and white lady a dear friend sent me and used coloured pastel chalks to add colour to her face and the flowers around her head.
And the final thing I made was a brooch -I have wanted to make this pattern up for ever so long
the pattern comes from an online shop called Vintage Vogue. Its a pattern that has been around for a wee while just as well cos it took me longer then a wee while to put my presents money down and buy it. Am so happy I did now its a lovely lovely brooch in real time its sparkles because of the crystals ( Vintage Vogue) oh but its twinkling at me even now as I write yummy!!
so as you can see I did some not a lot mind you but some stitching to blocks etc
Let me know wot you think of the items please
much love n hugs to my dear friends
