I love the quiet days between Christmas celebration and New Years Eve –
the days with no fixed plans and a fridge full of yummy leftovers.
Early this morning I pulled out this unfinished table topper and made it my priority project for the day.
DH was sleeping in and I decided to give him a surprise of Canadian pancakes for breakfast, as I had plenty of eggs, butter and full cream in the fridge.
The table topper is done – and it looks good! This one was so fun to make that it is not unlikely I will make it again :-)
In April I was gifted with this little pincushion kit from my friend Caroline, but for several reasons it got put to the side.
The pattern is in Dutch, from Bobbin – as if I really need a written patterns when I have the diagrams……..- and the fabrics were a bit dark and primitive. Excuses, excuses!
Today was the day – and I pulled out a nice linen fabric I bought in France to do the stitchery. The heart was done folded over Helen Stubbings’ applique paper – worked great.
I changed the black head for a grey one, added eyes, took away some of the primitive style, and voila – a nice sheep to keep my needles :-)
