Good morning everyone, I am late again with IHSW and Gifted Gorgeousness. My husband has updated the computer and now nothing works properly so I couldn't get on to the internet yesterday. Isn't technology great!
I have 2 updates, first is IHSW part one. Here's Treasure Hunt Bookshelf when you last saw it:
The top row is complete and I've moved back to the second row. I nearly have a page finish but got distracted at the weekend by a new project. I think I will finish the page today. Here's where I was on Monday:
And here's my Gifted Gorgeousness. I was watching the craft channel on Saturday, there was a company on called Bobo Stitch. They had kits for jute shopping bags where a design was stitched directly onto the bag. I thought they look great and I happen to have 4 jute shopping bags in my stash. I bought them at the NEC 2 years ago from Pinflair intending to do something else with them but hadn't got round to it. So I thought I'd see what charts I have in my stash and get stitching. I found a great chart in the second volume of Ultimate Cross Stitch Cards magazine which I bought a few weeks ago. It took me all day on Sunday but here's what I've made:
It's a flowery sheep! There is also a chart for a pig, rooster and dog so I might do all of them. This will be a Christmas present for someone, probably my Mum. I showed the picture to a friend yesterday and she asked if I would do the dog one for her. She's not well at the moment and has a big birthday coming up in July so I would like to get it done for her in time for that. I stitched this 4 over 1 but might try 3 over 1 for the next one.
Thanks for visiting, I will update again next week for the second part of IHSW. I have a week off work next week so am looking forward to lots of crafting and stitching.
