Friday Freebie: 50 x 50 for 2019 - June

Welcome back for the sixth edition of the 50 x 50 pattern series! This month I wasn't able to complete stitching of either pattern. It's been a roller coaster kind of week, Tuesday I had a panic attack so that was the end of that for the day. Wednesday I spent as a bundle of nerves and unable to concentrate on anything while waiting for oldest's exam results - he passed so that was a huge relief. Thursday I had the eye doctor to visit, first time in far too long. After all the tests and eye drops I couldn't see for hours and was almost completely unable to stitch (bicycling home while more or less blind was "fun". Fortunately oldest had come with me and he made sure I got home safely). Today I took the kids out to eat sushi at a really good all you can eat place to celebrate oldest passing his exams - it took a couple of hours after getting home to be able to sit at my computer again as I was completely wiped out. I'm glad the weekly shop is out of the way as I'm pretty sure tomorrow is going to be a recovery day.

Friday Freebie: Ornament of the Month - June

Welcome to the sixth Ornament of the Month for 2019! This month's colour is silver - it's a lovely colour for sparkle and gives a subtle stitching pattern on the ornament itself. Making this ornament was a saga in itself as you can read below.

Friday Freebie: Black and White Floral

Happy Friday! This week another no SAL post so instead I have a fun pattern for you! Today marks my oldest's 18th birthday - he's all grown up now but still a kid at heart so I've been busy with birthday stuff today. Which is why this is later in the day than usual for a Friday freebie.

Blackwork SAL - May

Welcome to the fifth part of the Blackwork SAL! I'm sorry it's late yet again - I took my fiancé to the airport and was busy getting stuff tidied up again and looked at the clock - eeek! Fortunately the pattern etc. was ready so all I had to do was write this post and put the pattern on the server.

Friday Freebie: Jennie Bunny

Happy Friday! This week no SAL post so instead I have a fun pattern for you! The pattern was inspired by my friend Jennie Bunny and I initially made the bunny while I was watching her stream on Twitch. The rest I thought of just as I was dozing off last night, fortunately I remembered the idea when I woke up and I was able to make it look as good as my idea - I'm so glad I did add to it!
