Friday Freebie: Geometrics

Happy Friday! This week is a non SAL week but I have a freebie for you as usual. As is often the case with the patterns I make, it can be made as large or as small as you desire. Although it's designed in one colour you can of course use one colour or many - or a variegated thread! This week's pattern is one blackwork fans will love, though it isn't strictly blackwork.

Blackwork SAL - September

Welcome to the ninth part of the Blackwork SAL! This month things did not go to plan for the stitching, between not being well, unexpected appointments, and getting told today that my new fridge is getting delivered tomorrow. It was supposed to be 15 calendar days but apparently they really meant five working days. I'm happy! The old fridge has just about had it, so getting it sooner rather than later is good but I just haven't had the time to complete the stitching.

Friday Freebie: 25 x 25 for 2019 - September

Welcome to the ninth of the 25 x 25 for 2019 patterns! This month I not only stitched it but I finish finished it too! Not sure how as my body is hating me for having the nerve to leave the house yesterday but I had an appointment to go to and leaving the house was part of the requirement for this particular appointment.

Medieval Owl SAL - September

Welcome to the September edition of the Medieval Owl SAL! This month it's right on time! Makes a nice change doesn't it? Hehehe. This month's pattern I had also stitched back in January to show what the blue looked like once stitched as it was such an unexpected colour for this project.

Friday Freebie: 50 x 50 for 2019 - September

Welcome back for the ninth edition of the 50 x 50 pattern series! This month I was able to stitch the main pattern but not the alternate version - a vast improvement on the last two months! I can really tell that I'm out of practice with stitching as it took me five days to do the stitching which is more than usual.

NFSAL 2019 - September

Welcome to the ninth NFSAL of 2019! This month I remembered that I was supposed to be using only one colour for the NFSAL this year - sorry about that.On the bright side I did have time to stitch it this month!

Friday Freebie: Ornament of the Month - September

Welcome to the ninth Ornament of the Month for 2019! This month's colour is Sun - not really a colour but with Autumn on its way in the northern hemisphere, and Spring on the way in the southern hemisphere we all need that last/first bit of sun while it's still nice. Today I stitched for the first time since July 2nd - just backstitch and beading but it was good to do *something* for a change.

Finish It In...2019 - Check In Post, TUSAL, and More for July, August, and September.

Welcome to the seventh Finish It In... 2019 post for the year! Yes it's really been three months since my last Finish It In... 2019 post. Between getting ready for my summer holiday (and getting the kids ready to go to ex for that time as I usually make a break for it when they are at his place for two weeks in the summer), being away on holiday and then over a month of dealing with my infected finger I either couldn't stitch or wasn't feeling up to it. I'm feeling a lot better now and am getting ready to stitch again (just as soon as I have this blog post out of the way really as I'll **finally** be all caught up!) I'm not sure if I mentioned it but I did splurge recently and got myself a new dishwasher which has really made things easier for me and left me with more energy everyday as I don't have to stand and do the dishes any more. This post will be picture heavy but perhaps not so picture heavy as it could have been if I'd not had health issues.

Weavers Birds SAL - Part 9

Welcome to the ninth part of the Weavers Birds SAL! This month you get the last part of this band! You also get the first two rows of the next band, though it might be a good idea to wait with stitching those few stitches - especially if you are going to use more than one colour.
