Got up early this morning and went down to Farmers Markets at North Shore. Brought some fruit for the grand-kids and us and something naughty for breakfast! Just the thing to have with the first coffee (skinny Cap) of the day and post about last night!
A very nice almond croissant! Don't tell the diet police! LOL!
Last night I finished the "Snow Happens" table runner stitchery. I only had one snowman left to stitch so it wasn't hard to have this done in a reasonable time frame and still go to bed early-ish!
I can't wait to put on the borders.
I used the DMC Pearl Cotton No 8 and although you need only use one thread, I'm not convinced I like it better than the regular DMC thread. I have the Santa table runner to go and might start it soon. That will make two items ready for Christmas!
Of course I had a helper last night.........she mostly got in the way when I wanted scissors or thread, but she wanted to join in so I really couldn't say no!
Last week I completed my Red Home "True Friends" Tote bag by Natalie Bird. I used Chateau Rouge by French General for Moda. I have plenty spare so will do the pin cushion and maybe a small purse to pop in the bag. These will go into my Birthday Love Stash being hosted by Wendy at Sugarlane Quilts. I didn't get much done for February but am going to turn that around for March.
Back, and the lining is the same fabric as the back. It looked complicated to make but the instructions were clear and very easy to follow. I love the two front pockets....very handy for phones or keys.
Thanks everyone for stitching along with me and the cat and Cheryll at Gone Stitchin' for hosting.
