bits and pieces
I got the blocking done on the next bit of the Lutrell fantasy. It would be nice if I could get to the stage of rolling along again before Chirstmas, but alas I have so many presents to finish/make/wrap that I doubt it will happen – in fact I’ll be lucky to get the details done on this owl steed.
I did make Gareth couple of new Christmas shirts though. First was this black one from a remnant I got at Sam Tailors in summer.
And I think I bought this grey snowflake print with silly santas on our Christmas eve shopping trip last year.
I’m not sure you can quite see the poinsettia buttons, but I thought they worked well.
He hasn’t had a chance to wear any of them yet as he’s been doing jury duty all week.
In other news I’m rattling along with Autumn, except that I sort of sketched in his beard for later, and at the moment he sort of looks a lot like Ming the Merciless from Flash Gordon…
I will try and load the last part of the stitchalong sometime next week. I have to ask gareth to convert the stitch diagram to pdf, and with him being stressed out about the jury duty thing I will have to time the request carefully so as not to get one of his patented drama queen hissy fits in response – wish me luck.
( I was thinking we’d start the second figure sometime in January)
