New Year Furtle

Hellooo 2020 and goodbye 2019 which was a bit of a weird year. Not too great but looking forward to having a real plan for 2020!

Now… December I actually made stuff yes really! Albeit it was pretty much up to the wire for Christmas gifts but here goes……

Pride and Prejudice Cross Stitch Sampler Cushion

I started this back in September as part of a SAL from Stitching Book Club that was released in 3 parts. Balancing this with work and study I thought it would be a breeze… phff not. Cue the stitching finished on 23rd December, turned into a cushion and gifted early on the 24th to the Mother in law.

Sophia the Unicorn

My 5yo niece is obsessed with unicorns and by that I mean it’s her favourite animal and she sees them everywhere! I had meant to dig out a pixel unicorn quilt top to finish, make the Hartman Lisa pattern as a cushion but didn’t quite get there. After months of begging for a giant stuffed toy I saw this and couldn’t resist getting it to make up for her.  It’s part of a pattern set released by the Knitty Critters and uses chunkey squishy blanket yarn which is a dream to crochet and comes together quickly. That said do you know when this was finished…… the morning of 25th December and gifted that afternoon.

So the brother of the unicorn obsessed niece is 8 and all he does/talk etc is Minecraft. Thanks to Jane who kindly gave me some of the fabric I was able to whip this up whilst waiting for Christmas lunch to cook and gift later that day! A fail though was the seals quilt he asked- maybe this year eh.

In the works…..

So here Toby was finished in 2019 just about and is destined for another nephew. What he’s currently sat on though is my sister’s Christmas present a quilt.. but it’s me and normally something big and handmade tends to be late.

What’s in store this month? Well sadly I still work full time (or rather more than that!), in the third and last year of my Masters’s degree so now the ante is upped and I start the dreaded dissertation. However I have a small list of goals. You may have already seen that I’m a designed in the upcoming Scrap Bag Sampler SAL (you must join in it will be such fun!). I’m also doing a couple of other cross stitch SALs and plan to do a couple more cushions (been asked for another minecraft one) as well as ticking over some other projects.
