One sleigh drop off...yes, I signed up for Chooky's Secret Santa Christmas Swap again this year so there's been a bit of sneaky sewing going on. The sleigh has left......
|...and this is all I can show for now :-)|
One slightly successful OMG (one monthly goal) result.... I linked up with Patty's OMG link up at the start of the month. I left the scope of my goal very broad...
For November I really want to pull out my Friday's Village quilt top and get some more quilting done on it.
Yes, I pulled it out quite early in the month, found the thread, found the ruler -
but it spent most of the month as an extra cosy spot for Timmie, who found it quite the perfect place to spend her days —
|This is a Westalee Ruler. I'm quite enjoying using it, now that I have |
myself organised again.
Thanks Patty for helping us set these goals and encouraging us to work towards them.
Two blocks completed for the No Fuss SAL. I don't think I've mentioned this here before. A no pressure stitch along where we go at our own pace to complete a quilt from Leanne Beasley's book, Living the Dream. Well, to date, my pace has been so laid back it's nearly been horizontal. It's been nice taking a break from my other hand projects for a few nights to stitch up these simple little stitcheries.
|I'm using several threads, a solid colour for the outside of the tags and a |
variegated one for the rest.
|This is the book we are stitching from.|
One more block completed for A Holly Cottage Christmas.
Here is the top row joined up —
|The first photo is an outdoors one and has truer colours!|
One rescued chicken.
You may remember this wee chick from June.
Well her and her siblings are all grown up now. One of these girls had to be rescued from the (cowshed) effluent pond the other day...here she is looking very indignant and totally filthy. She was in it up to her neck :-(. I'm so pleased that the MOML found her and rescued her for me.
I'm happy to report that after a hose down and a good night's sleep she was as good as gold again!
A bit of a slow month for me really but that's how it is sometimes, isn't it? I had a wonderful massage after work today so am feeling ready to take on the world :-)
'till next time,
