Prairie Sampler and GOF

I thought it was about time that I updated my blog as it will soon be time to show part 2 of Prairie Sampler and I haven't even posted part one. I've really enjoyed doing this, though at first I wasn't sure how I'd get on doing it in four weekly sections but it's been easy to keep up each week so it's made me think about how I usually start a new project.

I'm not over keen on the fabric that I'm using, it's 28ct permin linen in amber which has the look and feel of brown paper and creases terribly so I don't think that I shall use it again. It's a lot darker than the photo and it does look ok with the crescent colours that I'm using.

I've also finished the exchange for the Gift of Friendship that I do two or three times a year.

This year I chose to stitch a pendibulle as I'd never done one before and the only problem was finding a pattern that would fit into a corner but I don't think it's turned out too bad. I know that there aren't many in the GOF group that know that I have a blog so I think it's safe putting it on here.

Apart from a little stitching I've been looking after a poorly pussy cat. One of my daughters cats that she left here when she moved out got hit by a car three weeks ago. She broke her bottom jaw, split her top palette and her skull. Thankfully the vet managed to operate and wire her jaws up but the downside was that she had to be fed every couple of hours through a tube in her throat which was a bit tiring to say the least. Luckily for me she had the top wire out at the weekend and she's back to eating normally so just the bottom wire to come out and hopefully she'll be as good as new.

Hope everyone is keeping warm and dry, it's bucketing down here....

love and hugs
