First of all, before I even write anything - I apologise for the quality of the photo! I had a few minutes to spare before work yesterday so took some things outside to snap some photographs, but I was really rubbish about it. Firstly, the photos are rubbish, secondly I didn't take very many, forgetting to take photos of several items.
Today's post was going to be about my birthday presents but as I only have photos of a handful, I'm going to delay that one! One present in particular needs good light so you can appreciate it (my first piece of real art!).
So, instead, I bring you one measly photo of something I've stitched.
This was from a free pattern but I can't find the link. The web address is on the pattern so I'll publish the link when I show you the finished bookmark.
There is a back to the pattern, but I think I'm going to back it in felt and add a tassle. I finished this up on Monday when we got home from my birthday weekend away, then last night I wanted to continue the Yoda amigurumi I'm making. I started crocheting away, then realised I hadn't used a stitch marker and it was impossible to know where I'd got to with my tight little dcs (scs). I frogged it and started again but the curly yarn made it impossible, so I cut that bit off and started again. 10 minutes in and guess what? I'd forgotten to put the stitch marker in! Duh! I gave up at that point and sat staring blankly at the TV for half an hour before bed! I might try again tonight, or I might get on with the next cross stitch I'm doing for Christmas presents.
I've got loads of posts lined up, it's just that the majority are missing a photo or too! To whet your appetite (or make you decide not to come back for a few weeks), here's what I've got for you:
My birthday presents (mainly crafty / craft-related)
Some Christmas presents I'm halfway through making
Colin and Ellis
A gift bag tutorial
The low-down on the spinning class I went to a couple of weeks ago
Some birthday cards
I think that's it at the moment! Watch this space...
