well i did it , i have completed all my projects, actually i pretty much had them finished last friday, as i was stitching the sleeves in my jumper as i chatted to chookyblue and watching fairy girl and her friends
previously in the PHD update i showed you that i had my Tis the season block stitched and showed you that all my borders were on, actually in my Thursday night stitch a thon you can see that all my TTS blocks were joined together.
and last night i added the final borders....taa daa..... definitely not my usual Christmas colours, i am usually very traditional red, gold and green, but i think it came out really nice
For my birthday this year Gadget and the girls bought me an Ereader from Sony
an Ereader is an electronic device that you can purchase and download books on
this is extremely handy for me as i love to read, and when we head off camping, i can take three or four books (actually according to Sony it can store 1200 books) and it is only the size of a small note book
so of course being me i decided that it needed a cover to protect it, i dragged out some of the gorgeous Cambodian silk that i purchased last year.
my brain ticked alot trying to come up with a design as to how to make it , in the end i decided a envelope style case would be great.
the finished product,
the first photo shows the true colour of the silk, all in all i am very happy with it
and last but definitely not least
it is very baggy, which i love and is made from alpaca wool,
i purchased the wool from Bendigo wool mills back in 2008
i like the simple style of this jumper, i think it will be very ward and snuggly
around the campfire at night
hope your hands are working on something that you love
