A week's crafting

As you may have noticed, I have am updating my blog on a weekly basis. Since I am adopting a weekly rotation, I might as well blog when the week is up :)

This week saw me stitching To Laugh Often. It's a really an easy going design and I am getting a hang of stitching 1/1 on 25ct Lugana. Love the powerful words, must get it completed and framed by December 22nd.


A little on the tatting front. I completed the 4th round of an oval doily, another 5 more to go ;)


Lastly a little finishing for my sis's stitching. She' stitched a design from Joan Elliot's Sentiments & Sayings for her friend's twin sons Lincoln & Malcus. I finished it into a wall ornament. And I bought two rompers and pasted a teddy on each :) They look soooo cute.


I've been awarded the 'You make me smile award' by Squazi. Thank you my new blogging friend. It is most appreciated. Most blogs I visit make me smile and they've been awarded already :p by someone somewhere on our big blue marble :D

Comment Notes: Thank you all for continuing to visit me, dear all. The comments you leave are so inspiring and some are even funny! I love them all.

  9. The sampler is looking really good and now so much is done, the colours are showing well and they are really beautiful. The tatting is also very beautiful. I haven't touched my tatting for several years now, I hope I remember how to do it still.

  10. Oh, your doily is exquisite! I have learned doing some but it definitely does not relax me so I have given up...
    You've achieved a wonderful finish on your sister's stitching (she's talented too!). And to laugh often is very beautiful. It is a real labour of love.
    Take care!
