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.

Twirls & Swirls: Beaded scissor keeper

Standard

I’ve finished my scissor keeper, it was a kit by Lorna Bateman. I added the ribbon to make sure the expensive gold work scissors did not go missing or get used for other things.

I designed the back my self.

I still have the thimble keeper to make, I thought it might be good to keep the beeswax in. I have another couple of Lorna Bateman kits waiting too.
