I have done a bit of crafting, not alot but here is my update :-
Luke’s jumper, I have not really worked on it for a while, with trying to get the Xmas present stitched, but here is where it is upto :-
I have finally started The Watering Hole, cross stitch kit. It took me a while to prepare the fabric and is going to take ages to stitch but am going to take it slow and just see how it goes! Here are the piccies :- The fabric before I started to stitch! Have since changed the frame I am using and here it is so far :
I have also been preparing the fabric for Luke’s afghan. It is taking ages and I am probably doing alot more than I should but I think as it will be used for years to come, rather spend the time now getting it prepared correctly so it will last! Preparation of each square! Here is the entire afghan, but have done a bit more now!
I have about 3 columns left to do and then I need to tack some Stitch ‘n Tear behind each square I am going to use and only then will it be ready! There probably is an easier way to do it, but I could not find any hints, tips or advice on how to do it, so using my own initiative! I am looking forward to starting to stitch it, but I think that may be a few days off yet!
So yes a bit of crafting has been done, but I could do with having done a bit more! 2009 projects, will be the afghan and the watering hole, and I am hoping to be able to stitch some cards and knit some presents, but I will start in Jan instead of deciding in Nov/Dec! So watch this space for updates!
