Well its a incy wincy lie. There are still no buttons on my Cardi.
But the Xmas Tree is finished! I am pleased with it and I discovered that it is actually bigger than any of the others cross stitches I have done although possibly not so densely filled. It is also nice to have something with such straight forward back stitch.
There are some mistakes without a doubt but only I know that (well and now all of you) but nothing that you would be able to tell I mean none of the animals arms are attached in the wrong place or anything! OH’s Nanna doesn’t like sky on her jigsaws well I don’t think I like grass and foliage on my cross stitch. Its also strange how there are some silk numbers (shades) that I just know are going to be trouble and I don’t know why.
I have realised that I have missed a very important piece of information. I
have been exorcised have sold my knitting machine. WOOO HOOOO I have nothing more to say on the subject.
What’s next then?
Ah yes a little light knitting. Well so light, some a little more taxing. The blue bulking and purple are part of my payment for the knitting machine. This has gone against all of my understanding as I always choose what I want to do then buy the yarn. But I have found a snoody/scarf thing which should work for the bulky and a lacy knit for the purple, this may not go so well as again against my understanding I will have to do a tension square and have no idea how much yardage I have so might run out!
The two blue and grey are for dual purpose squares, practice for big project and also for the local knit shops charity project. The brown/cream is for some wrist warmers and the MEGA aran is for a proper aran cardi for me. I have been harboring one for a long time now.
I was also having a tidy in my loft the other day and discovered 3 generations of crafting past. There were various items made by elder family members and then I found these

Then I thought hang on there were more……………after some thinking and discussion the decision was made that my sister is the custodian of the reminder of the family. And here they are
