I didn't want to throw away my sampler so I carefully cut it out and it just fitted into a coaster - perfect for my coffee cup when I put it on the mantle (nearest place to the left side of my sofa)
|Upcycled - my new coaster
|My new box with it's lid lined and Gill's Angel
|This time I used a Brittercup Design chart I had in my stash
|I also used spare threads I've had for ages from kits.
I've stitched another ornament for my Winter Wonderland - it's a Little House Needleworks designs but without the border; Seven Pines
|Ornament 4 for my Winter Wonderland tree
This morning I have planted up a few spring flowers. Our garden is north facing so gets very little sun until late February/early March - I had to move my bulb pots to the top of the garden as the flowers were not appearing. Now they have had direct sun for a few weeks they are starting to bloom. It's very satisfying to put out spring flowers, get rid of the final dead leaves and general spruce the garden up for the new season to bloom.
