Post!

I don't often post about stuff I get in the mail any more, mostly because I forget to take photo's before it gets merged into my stash - though I should do a post soon about my Jodyri stuff as its fantastic - but that's a story for another day. Today I want to talk about a parcel that came in the post yesterday. It was sent to me by my dear friend Carla ,who has the Alaska Wolf Pack blog and does a series of FlossTube video's (go check it out, She's fun!), and not only contained stuff she was sending me but also 2 envelopes from other people who had sent them to her to be included in the box! How wonderful is that!?! This post is picture heavy!

Friday Freebie: Fob a Month - January

Yes you see that correctly! The Fob a Month is back! Every second Friday of the month I'll be giving you a fob pattern that is 35 stitches square at most. There is no theme to this - just whatever I come up with at the time but they will always be a good size for a fob - or if stitched on larger fabric a biscornu.

WIP Wednesday

This was as far as I'd gotten with stitching this last week - obviously as it's a weekly update SAL you will see it posted every time the pattern is released but what most of you don't know is that I'm planning on getting to the point where I'm a few weeks ahead in case my health decides to get in the way of stitching. While I can post pictures that are spoiler free I will do so but otherwise it will be hidden.

Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL: Part 2

It's Wednesday night (well for me at least - those in other time zones will of course have another time of day) and time for the second part of the Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL! I know some of you are eagerly awaiting this bit as they have finished part 1, while others are rather impatiently waiting for the postie to show up with their fabric (I do hope he/she gets there fast!).

NYE Mystery SAL: And The Winner Is...

It's the 8th of January and as promised I went around and collected all the names of those that I could find that had finish finished their NYE SAL Embroidery. I had to make more name slips twice! In total 34 people finished their embroidery. That is a pretty awesome number of finishes - for many it was the first finish of the year, which is fantastic!

Friday Freebie: Ornament of the Month - January

It's been a while since I used this banner on a post! The Ornament of the Month patterns are back and this time with a difference! Last time the theme was birthstones and I picked colours based on the colour of the birthstone (or birthstones as some months had more than one). This time there is of course a new theme!

WIP Wednesday! And a Freebie Because... Freebie!

A bit late in the day but still on Wednesday... the first WIP Wednesday post in a long while. I've just been too busy and I have to admit for a quick update Instagram has been easier to do than a blog post.

Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL: Part 1

Welcome to the first part of the Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL! I know some of you have been impatiently waiting for the day to come that this should happen and I'm happy to say that today is indeed that day that your patience will be rewarded!

NYE Mystery - The Prize!

First I'll show you my completed embroidery - it's not finish finished yet but it will be soon! I hand dyed the fabric myself using Dylon fabric paints and used the colours mentioned in the pattern.

NYE Mystery SAL: Part 13 - Wait what?

Ha! I bet you weren't expecting this! Well... ok... I *did* say there was going to be another part in 3 hours in my last post but I expect you *may* have thought that was a copy/paste mistake or something.
