Winter has certainly arrived at our house - Look what I spotted in the garden this week. A robin red breast - A true sign that winter has indeed arrived. I have to admit to being a little blue throughout these past few weeks. I am sure it is because I leave for work in the dark and get home right on dark and spend all day inside an office - Hmmmm I think I had better start taking my vitamin D again.
I haven't been idle though I have been stitching a few blocks of a soon to be released redwork quilt for a friend. It is a gorgeous design and one I think I will make in pinks.
We have had a new kitty join our family. Meet Candy. She is such a delight and is chasing a kitty ball around the house as I write this post. She never stops playing - Who needs to watch telly when we can sit and watch her antics every night.
My online friendship stitching group had a winter swap. I enjoyed making Gail Pan's Cottage Garden Threads Thread keeper so much that I decided to make another one for my partner Sandy
I am so pleased that she loves it - It is a real joy to stitch and easy to make. Gail writes a very easy to follow pattern so no hiccups with this pattern at all.
I also played along in a COLOUR SWAP. These are the gifts that I sent my partner Peta. You will have to go over to her blog if you would like to see what I sent her as I forgot to take a photo of it all unwrapped.
This is what she sent me
Look at it all - Wasn't I spoilt?
This bracelet is just gorgeous and made by Peta herself
Lots of shabby coloured bits here
And look at this adorable kitty made in shabby fabrics. Her name is Rosie. Thanks so much Peta I love it all.
