I may be a week late.... but finally I am here to post my TUSAL pic
It is quite amazing how the ORT's seem to be growing these days... This month's ORT's are sitting with my new friend.... Hubby bought this cute little sheep home the other day. He is one of those little cuddly things that you can heat up (or freeze) a little bag that then gets popped into back and warms you up... just like a hot water bottle only cutier! I haven't tried him out yet, but as it is getting colder here now I don't think it will be long before he comes in handy!
Over the last week I have been stitching on the "Faces of Joan Elliott" SAL piece. I have decided to leave the last little bit of the first face for the time being (doing the 2 over 2 is doing my head in....) and I started the second square which is the cat.
After a week of stitching him, I have now put this one away - this is what he is looking like at the moment:
I am really pleased at how cute he is turning out to be.... this square is stitching up really quickly - next time I pick him up I should be able to get that square finished!
**************The Annual Quilt and Craft Fair is in town at the moment. Hubby and I went along yesterday for our usual shopping spree!
Before we started shopping though we met up a for a coffee with some other WA bloggers/stitchers/quilters. This catch up was organised by Anthea from Hibiscus Stitches. It was great meeting up with the girls.
Hubby was taking the pictures so managed not to get his own taken....
After a morning of walking around Hubby and I then met up with the girls again for lunch before we headed off home.
I did manage to buy a couple of things this time round, but I have to say that this year was extremely disappointing as far as needlework goes..... There was only one cross stitching stand and unfortunately she didn't have any of the latest charts that I was looking for. But of course, I did manage to buy some new kits and also some plain colour linen to add to my stash.
I have been eyeing these gorgeous kitties off for ages and finally got around to getting some of them. I plan to stitch them to hang in the spare bedroom which we call "the cat room" as I already have cat pictures on display in that room! I so feel a new start coming on.... which one should I start first I wonder!
Til next time when I have an update for you, happy stitching...
*********************If you don't know (or haven't heard) about the 2015 TUSAL, Daffycat is again hosting the fun Totally Useless SAL (TUSAL). Essentially we stitch and save our ORT's (Old Raggety Threads) and every New Moon those of us participating in the TUSAL post a picture of our ORT's jar, and then leave little msgs for Daffycat on her blog to show that we have been stitching and have posted our wonderful pics. Please head over to her sign up page and join in the fun!
