January update

My resolution this year was to start finishing things, I’ve made a pretty good start..

I’ve finished two blocks for the Quilting bee I’m taking part in

The January block looks a bit tricky, so I’m putting that off to next week when my Mum comes to visit.. 🙂

The canvas stitches piece I’ve been working on at the Royal School of Needlework, this piece is based on a painting by Georgia O’Keefe called Lake George, Autumn. This piece has been so much fun to do – I did go a bit mad with the shading, with sometimes more than a dozen threads in the needle at one time.

I have also finished a few pieces that I’m hoping to put up for sale in an Etsy shop – alongside their patterns.. Eek! I’ve been talking about this for a while now, but am close to making it real – I just need to fix the scanner and write up the patterns!

No cute photo of my son in the post, but while I’ve been productive in January, he has been in craft overdrive! He has discovered the joys of cutting and sticking! This spider was made one Friday morning before 9am. It looks likely he’ll be a lefty so I bought him some scissors just before the snow arrived, since then we’ve been drawing cutting and sticking pretty much every day.
