FNSI


For FNSI i decided to finish off this cute pin cushion designed by Leanne Knell


Its quite a quick little project to do


I am pleased with the finish.


I had trouble with the dye running again,when ironing water spilt out on the stitchery and i had red dye everywhere so it all came out with a good soak,thank goodness.


I wanted to add it to this gift.
To see what the other girls got up to go here,a big thankyou to Wendy for hosting.

For my next project i am not going to get caught with the dye running so i have soaked my country garden threads in salted water and then rinsed and then dried on a towel.

Mini Xmas Stars


I have had so much fun playing with 2 Rag-Tag Stitchin patterns,i have used both the 6 mini Christmas Stars pattern and the Xmas Pocket mini pattern ( 4 designs for $6 a bargain).
The Pocket mini i copied at 75% so that i could fit it on the stars and it was the perfect size.


I decided to also put some beads on,lol because i like bling bling


I am so rapted with these stars both such lovely patterns.


I got 5 in all made for the gift box,thankyou Michelle for such gorgeous patterns,cant wait to start on another one of your projects.

Walter The Snowman


Here are my 3 Walter's waiting for their cheeks and snow to be added.


I love painting the snow on them


I use snow tex which i bought online many years ago and the postage cost more than the bottle,lol,
Its by DecoArt and is called Fabric Snow-Tex and is a textural medium.
I have made many snowmen and the jar isnt even a 1/4 gone so it goes along way.


Here they are with their cheeks which i just use my blusher and with their snow.


They are all wrapped up in their cellophane bags


Ready for gifting later in the year.


This is a gorgeous pattern designed by Michelle Ridgway of Rag-Tag Stitchin and is called Walter the snowman,he is one of my most favourite patterns and i make him so many times every year for gift giving.

Hope your day is a good one.
