First of all lets start with the finishes ...... I'd forgotten to take photos of the rainbow market bag I crocheted for Daughter for her Birthday back in October (also forgot to list it as a finish) .... so Stace took a couple of photos for me to put up. It worked up quite well and goes with the theme of her rainbow blanket I did earlier for her.
The Spice of Life CAL run by Sandra from Cherry Heart Blog has come to a finish, although the free pattern remains on her blog and I know there are many working on new blankets of various colours.
Anyhow, I got mine finished off, including the border which I think finishes it off and brings all the colours together. I'm pleased with how its come out and I enjoyed doing this blanket and I'm thinking I'll do at least one other of this pattern, but not till next year, and likely in about half the number of colours.
And while we are up near the chook pen, come and have a peek at our two new additions......
Little Mary has been sitting on eggs of the non fertile type for the past couple of weeks, and when we went to the Yarrawonga Market yesterday they had "Day olds" for sale ...... Pete picked the
stripey one and has called it Jacey, and I picked the other little one which has a grey blue down to it and have name it Joy. They have bonded really well and Mary is quite protective of her new babies....
Aren't they just sooooooo cute!! All is right in the world when baby chicks are there.
I also decided to begin on a new sewing project for my craft cabin ...... I want a new table cloth for the table in there. I've been thinking a lot about hexies of late, working out what I might make ... and I've decided it would be a good idea to incorporate some hexie love into the table cloth. My plan is to have my blog name embroidered in the middle and surround it with large hexie flowers. To add a bit of a spin to it though, I thought how nice it would be if I had the centres of some of the flowers with my crafting and blogging friends embroidered into the centre. So I'm putting it out there and asking if any of you might like to embroider your name onto a single hexie and post it out to me so I can add the petals to it to make the flowers. I have the materials already picked for the flower petals, so all I need are the centre hexies with your names (and town or state or country you live in, if you want to add that). The finished hexie size is 2.5inches ( that is 2.5 in along each finished hexie side). They will need to be done in white, cream, calico, pale lemon or pale yellow ....... something like this......
Here is the centre I'm working on ......... I'll be adding more to it as I go...... I just think it would be nice to have a Blogging Table Cloth on my table with friends names embroidered on who share a love of crafting and blogging.
If you are keen to be part of my table cloth then either leave a comment or email me ( firstname.lastname@example.org) and use the title Blog Table Cloth. But for now, its time for me to finish getting ready and head out the door to work!
I hope you have an amazing day and I do hope I'll have friends wanting to work on this with me ....... perhaps I should start thinking of other things I can embroider into the centres just in case I get no responses
