January seems to have flown passed (in more ways than one - it's been a bit blowy) leaving me rather surprised to find it is February.
I have little stock and having made a list of 'must makes' I now need to prioritise my crafting endeavours. Fun activities such as spinning, sewing, hooking, weaving and knitting are competing for my time. That said I need to spin in order to get started. So much for being ahead of the game.
I have a very good reason for taking time off during January. A new granddaughter arrived in the wee small hours of Christmas Eve morning. Please note the jumper, my hands haven't been totally idle.
I also completed a 'Welcome to our home' wall hanging. The picture is hooked in hand spun wool and some sari silk. I hand stitched the names onto small pieces of calico which were then sewn on to the canvas along with ceramic heart shaped buttons. I think I will do a few more of these hangings but back them with calico rather than use artists canvas. I will either sew a sleeve at the back or make tags so it can be hung up.
I have also fulfilled an order for two felted hanging hearts similar to this one.
So that's enough for now. Before I go let me introduce you to Sheep - a birthday gift. Many thanks I love it and am looking forward to bringing it home. This sheep is 24" high, 31" long and 14" wide.
