Friday Freebie: Ornamental Symmetry

This week I was in the mood to use greys for the pattern - nice cool colours to offset the heat of the day as it's been pretty hot here lately and it looks like the heat is here to stay for a bit too! I added the blue as it needed a little colour and this one seemed to fit the bill of being a nice cool colour.

Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL: Part 26

Welcome back for part 26 of the Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL! This week gets us to the end of the band and the beasts get feet on all four legs! Those of you using colour can now see why I coloured the key the way I did.

Friday Freebie: French Checkerboard

The other day I saw a tweet by S Mooers Christelow and fell in love with the background, as I often do with medieval manuscripts. This one had some brownish squares but when I looked closely they looked like they had once been gilded so I decided to treat them as that and picked yellow instead of the brown for the pattern.

Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL: Part 25

Welcome back for part 25 of the Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL! This week the start of the second half has arrived! Not everyone will be at this place - I know I'm not hehe. I'm still several weeks behind and have only done a few stitches this week but at least I have done some stitches - that's more than I've done in the last couple of weeks. That's life for you! Sometimes you are just too busy and tired to stitch.

A slightly late Friday Freebie: Ornament of the Month - June

Welcome back for the sixth Ornament of the Month! This month it's a little late - sorry about that! I was in the middle of party prep for oldest's birthday sleepover and completely forgot to post it - and was too tired after. Working on the basis of better late than never I decided to post it now (even if it's also a lot later in the day - or night - than it usually is).

Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL: Part 24

Welcome back for part 24 of the Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL! We are now half way with the patterns! We are however NOT half way with the stitch count! I hear a collective gasp of horror as you imagine there is more to go, but this is where I have good news: we are over half way with stitching (well at least those of you who have stitched all the parts so far)

Friday Freebie: Fob a Month - May and June!

Welcome to another edition of the Fob a Month for 2018! As life happened a bit too much I didn't get round to doing last month's so I'm making a post with both patterns this month so I don't end up getting too far behind with this.

Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL: Part 23

Welcome back for part 23 of the Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL! I hope all is going well with you all! The social media users may have noticed that I've been quiet again this week - life has been pretty hectic and I've had little energy to do much of anything - even the daily chores have been too much some days - I even got muddled with my days so it's good my fiancé reminded me it was Tuesday or even this post would have gone the way of the other posts I need to catch up on!
