I plan, I pick projects, I take photos, I make to do lists, and then……..
………. I end up working on something totally different………. I guess it never happens to you ?? …….or what ?? :-)
This little stitchery from the cute Bareroots book I started before Christmas. It just did not make it into the gift box this year. It is intended for a pin cushion, so it will be done shortly.
It was not on my to do list for the week though…………
I must admit I was a bit embarrassed by not working on my to do list, so I worked on the kit for the ladybug pin cushion + drawstring bag for a couple of evenings. I changed the mini yo-yos called for in the pattern with black wool felt circles. It turned out cute in the end.
I have later given the pattern to a friend who is making things with her granddaughter. I hope they will enjoy to make ladybugs :-)
The Christmas Heart table cloth top is done too, tonight :-)
It turned out much bigger than I expected from the beginning, 51" square.
If I use it on my coffee table the corner tips will touch the floor.
What I loved most about this project are the 4 different corner heart stitcheries, which I most certainly will use again in other projects.
I must admit I am not one for mystery BOMs really, as I like to plan more ahead. This one I bought as a kit, and even if it is very coordinated, I am not to happy with the colour balance in the finished top.
One can hardly please all I guess :-) Maybe it helps if I put on a deep red binding ?
Last year I gave up swaps, this year I am cutting back on BOMs.
I am doing the ones that I have going and will keep on having the one from Lappemakeriet - I love the style, the kits and all :-)
The top is cat approved though :-)
