Mum gave me a new kit a patch work dachshund & I have made a start.

Irish Rose Doily


My first make of the year 😃. I thought I would use up some of my crochet cotton stash, I thought it would take up less space as a doily, & make possible presents later on in the year. I’m using Doilies in Colour from Annie’s crochet, a book I had purchased a few years ago, but never got around to making any.

SAL: Christmas 2018

SAL: Christmas 2018

This time I have actually managed some back stitching

Finished all 3 birdies, they will be hung on my little tree later today

Have any of you played this game

We got it as a quick game to play over Christmas, it’s really good. You have a currency of buttons & you buy patches as you go, to place on your quilt board. All the patches are different sizes, you can only buy any of the next 3 patches in front of the marker ( if you have enough buttons) you get extra button income from the buttons on your quilt patches. It get interesting when you start to become unable to fit patches on the board ( especially if you have a tactical opponent such as my husband)

If you would like to see what the rest of the group are up to & stitching, please follow the links below.

SAL December


Christmas crafting is underway

One calendar done, two more to go!

Two bird Christmas tree decorations from a kit mum gave me, & one more to go.

Have I done any cross stitch? No. I have done lots of other things. This week I took 15 girls doing A level physics to Harry Potter studio tour, for a careers/ STEM workshop, we all had a great time & came home with baby nifflers.

Personally I got 2 & buckbeak , it’s been a long term, with still 3 weeks to go I needed cheering up a bit.
