Well, it already has here! We had about an inch of snow overnight which looks SO pretty, and we've had clear blue skies all day so far, a lovely crisp and bright day to lift the spirits a little.
Well, I know it's only been a few days since my last post, a miracle I know, but I've had the sewing machine out again this morning and finished finished Lizzie Kate's ABC Christmas! I don't know exactly what you'd call it, sort of a hanging pinkeep but not lol. I stitching the stitched piece and backing fabric together on three sides as if I was going to make a cushion, inserting ribbon for a hanger along the top side, then inserted a piece of mountboard covered in batting into the opening and stitched the final side up using ladder stitch. And for the perfect finishing touch I think I attached two little snowmen that I found in my stash to the ribbon. I am just so proud of myself with this. It isn't perfect, but I really do love the way it looks and I'm gaining confidence with the sewing machine all the time which I'm so happy about. I forgot to take a pic of the backing fabric I used, sorry, but it's red with snowmen in multicoloured outfits which I thought was a lovely match to the design.Finishing this up today has made me want to put our christmas decorations up, but we're waiting til next weekend so I'll have to settle for watching christmas films and admiring what's left of the snow while I stitch on my Personalised Sampler later and hopefully finish the page!
