January Monthly Challenge

Today was reveal day for the Needlecraft Haven Monthly Challenge -  Des Filles et une Aiguille ... by Tralata

This is my cat - I made it into a coaster :)

Fabric - 32ct evenweave Ivory
Thread - DMC 115 varigated
Christine has already put the February Challenge up - guess I better get stitching LOL

I had a great day today - I spent the morning making cards - one for the Sweet Feet Exchange on NH and 10 for the 2011 Birthday Thread Exchange, again on NH, I really enjoyed sitting making them whilst watching the tennis - maybe next time Andy. I can't share the photos just yet.

I am working on an Elliot design for DD's birthday - it's a lovely heart but her birthday is on 17th Feb so I have to get going. She has been really poorly this last week - she's had this awful flu and has been knocked off her feet for five days now. She is getting better but it's taking a long time.

WIP on Elliot - 30st Jan 2011
My new forum Needlecraft Haven is 1 month old tomorrow and I have designed a little chart as a thank you to all the lovely members. If you haven't popped by yet just apply for membership and I'll authorise it - you'll be able to browse around then and see all the fabulous things we're doing.

Thanks for popping by, happy stitching.

Great finish Clare, it's so pretty.

Your coaster is adorable. I hope your daughter feels better soon.

Jane said...

I love your cat coaster, beautiful

Christine said...

Lovely finish on the Challenge. My first thought was a coaster too, but a minor miscalculation on the fabric front made it come out too big and I had to rethink!
Hope DD is better soon
