Right now to stitching and I have to admit that I just got fed up with ISD and have put it away for a while with the 2nd large motif still unfinished. Not a lot to do on it but hey ho, it will come out again soon.
In its place I got out Country Bloomers, and since this picture was taken I have finished the yellow bloomers, outlined both them and the green ones, put flowers in the pot beneath the green ones and done another pot. This too has gone away not until after the holiday.
Holiday stitching is always a new start, I know its naughty when there are so many unfinished ones in my box but my excuse is they are all either large designs or need a lot of colours so I need something simple to do on holiday lol. Trawling through my stash I decided on School of Needlework by LHN. Its a nice easy chart, not too big and not too many threads needed to be carted with me, it will slip into my handbag nicely.
Now to cards, the first was made for a very dear friend AnnT who some of you will know though she does not blog.
Next one was for a very dear friend and my neighbour for 40 odd years Christine, again not a blogger.
The final one is actually two pics, first the front and then the inside of the card I made for my darling grandson Oscar. The decoupage was from the "Flippin' Teenage" range and I really enjoyed making this one. When I saw the decoupage sheet I couldnt resist buying it as earlier in the year Oz dressed as a Punk for a school music program which covered 60 years of pop music. It was a really fun show starting with rock music from the late 50's right up to some of the latest hits.
