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.

Scissors keeper progress

Standard

The front is finished, I really enjoyed this, it’s quite textured. I designed my own back.

I now need to find time to make the scissor keeper, I’m thinking about adding a ribbon, to truly keep both together, after all I really need to make sure my special gold work scissors stay for gold work.

Felt Christmas decorations

Standard

This year we decided on a pre lit pop up tree. I added some extra ribbon (like the more expensive version) but it still lacked some thing. I have been looking at the twelve days of Christmas felt decorations by Larissa Holland on Etsy & brought the pack of the first 3 ( this years offerings)

Partridge & pear (tree) are finished.

Unicorn Dreams ( Zendoole stitch) 1

Standard

I have a new project to practice my embroidery stitches on. I’ve chosen pink, mauve & yellow to work in.  If it works out well I might make it into a cushion for our granddaughter ( hence the pink)

Here’s my progress 

I’m attempting to practice covering up all those black lines & getting smooth edges. 

It’s quite a fun design, isn’t it.
