That's the way it goes sometimes, hey?
Sometimes it's paper, sometimes it's wool.
This post is about wool and sewing.
The update is as follows:
(I'm sounding very formal today, sorry about that)
The Flowery Cushion...
...is back out on the bench with some flowers pinned on because I'm determined to see it finished this winter.
The Colourful Rug...
It's currently on my desk chair ready to be used.
I'm actually not sure if it's the right size (I'll fold it over when I use it)...but another seven bands of colour would've made it too big. And there was no way I was adding only three bands or something because that would've mucked up the pattern.
I love it and would love to start another (just because I feel like it), but I'll restrain myself and concentrate on my new...
Cross stitch Monkey...
Oh so cute.
When I saw this little fella for $29.95 in Spotlight, I knew I wanted to make it instantly, but I balked at the price.
I ended getting it online (as you do) for $23.45 (including postage) which I was a lot happier with.
It's a great little kit with everything in it that you need. Perfect for someone like me who has never crossed a stitch in her life. I did have to buy the hoop - that was 3 bucks from Spotlight.
Sue (my sister) - the cross stitch queen that she is - got me started and gave me lots of tips.
I've been really enjoying it a lot. It's nice to sew while Masterchef is on or something like that.
The pattern suggests making the monkey into a cushion, but I'm going to frame it I think.
So fun :o)
