Friday night with friends

Last night a friend joined me for some relaxed hand stitching and chatting. I managed to finish the stitcheries for some cute Christmas decorations. I made some of these last year (see earlier post) and fell in love with them.

I really find this simple activity relaxing at night during a busy week...the only thing that gets in my way is that I usually haven't traced anything and I really can't be bothered mid week to do anything other than simple hand sewing!

Then I found another UFO just waiting to be picked up...this lovely needlecase of Lynette Anderson's...I think it's gorgeous.

Just need a little more stitching and some applique...I've narrowed the roof down to two beautiful pieces of wool...and then it will probably be put away for next time...

Thanks for the inspiration Cheryll...very impressed with your hosting prowess whilst travelling!

  7. Your stitcheries are very cute and look like the perfect downtime stitching project. The needlecase is gorgeous too, hope it doesn't take too long to get back to it again!
