Christmas Eve,,,

and DH is working,, so what am I to do,,, update my blog of course!!
I went for a walk this morning, into the village. And after the stormy weather yesterday,, the river has flooded again. No pictures as my camera battery died as I switched the thing on!! It was the worst I have seen it in the 5 years I have been here!

A few days ago I spotted one of the dear close to the little car park at the back of us,,
that is the closest he/she has been to civilization. You can just see my little car in the bottom right of the photo.

I have made a little pouch to keep my spare DMC threads in. I made a half Dresden plate pattern and wanted to do something with it other than just a block,,,

The orange fabric is a little brighter than in the photo.
 The small tub of Hotel Chocolat choccies were from my Big Boss Lady at work,,,,mmmmm!
And the progress on my Sisters stitchery,,, just the leaves and flowers on the right to do!

Just one more thing to say,,,,,
                                               Merry Christmas!!!

Meet Lily!!

I bought myself a magazine as a treat,,, and made the little giveaway gift,,,

 Meet Lily,,,  the magazine called her Matilda,,, but I think she looks like a Lily!!
She was getting in to everything,, even into my knitting bag!!

I have started a stitchery by Red Brolly,,, 'Sisters, featuring Brutus The Cat',,

I managed to get a photo of a clothes shop in Bath,,,, that has a lot of sewing machines in their window,,,

I must ask them one day about the history of the machines!!

Here is a better photo, colour wise, of my 2nd Hitch,

And this photo is for Margaret,,,,

Off My Needles!

I have made a 2nd Hitchhiker scarf,,,

The actual colours are more brown than what is showing here! I just have to block this then it is done!!!

I have also made a sewing roll, to hold my needles, scissors etc,,,,,

and it is made in my favourite colours.

Not much else has been going on,,,
