Further Update on What I’ve been Up To!

I have been very bad at updating my blog as of late. I don’t know where the days and weeks are going to. One day just seems to roll into another and before you know it another week has gone by.

I started a new job just after Christmas feeding the calves on the farm where my OH is Herd Manager. It’s hard work but on a plus side I’ve lost nearly a stone in weight without trying.

I have been doing some sewing and have done a bit more on my wallhanging. So here’s some more pics. I want to add some beads, lots of beads and some embroidery stitches. It’s been a long time since I’ve done something out of my head, for me, that I can go OTT with. It’s very liberating!

The background fabric seems greyish in these photos but it really is more green.

What I'm up to.

It's been waaaaaaaaaay too long since I last updated my blog. I've been so busy but not entirely uncreative.

Anyway, I bought myself a Sizzix Big Shot machine and a die to play with. I did toy with the idea of buying an Accuquilt Go! but the price of that cutter is like 5 times the price of the Sizzix. The Sizzix will actually take the Accuquilt dies so I have the best of both worlds.

I belong to a Facebook group and one of the challenges was to make something for Valentine's Day. Now I know this isn't exactly romantic but I wanted to use the heart die cutter so it is HEART related. :-)

It's still a work in progress and the colours aren't true but at least you'll get the idea.

I'll add beads and other stuff eventually. I've had fun with it so far.
