I choose to replace the US flag with a little bit of Betsy's own stitching
stitched on 32 ct Lambswool Jobelan
with DMC threads
I've also finished Hannah's 2009 ornament
Just Cross Stitch 2007 Ornaments Magazine
stitched on 32ct mocha belfast linen
using Weeks, GAST and DMC threads
I also have a new knitting finish, this sideways jacket is for a friend's new baby - the wool is actually not as pink as it shows in this photo but more red/orange.
So its been a very productive week. All round in fact, as Glenn and I have had a major sort through in our garage, tidying up and getting rid of unwanted things. He's recently put in some new storage - our Christmas tree and decorations have their very own cupboard! LOL. I've also been sorting through the clothes in my wardrobe and have been very selective in what I'm keeping, hee hee, I'll look forward to some clothes shopping in the spring time!
The rain continues on here, I think this our sixth wet weekend in a row? So my oven is certainly getting a good work out on these wet days, making soup and trying out some new baking recipes. On today's baking agenda were banana choc chip muffins, apple dessert cake, a tea loaf, and pikelets for Glenn and Hannah's lunch. Its quite funny though, although I love baking, I'm not really a big eater of sweet things.
Til the next time, happy stitching and thanks for stopping by!
