A little craft work

Since my fall I have struggled to concentrate on sewing and reading but since last week things have improved. A have a check up Thursday at the hospital so fingers crossed it's good news.

So sewing wise - I have finished stitching a gift which needs final assembly tomorrow before it travels to its new home.

I also assembled my new stitch box. You can read about my old box and the stitching of my new top in my Upcycling post. Here's my new box with its new lid.

I also managed to finish April's Challenge on Needlecraft Haven. I made mine into an ornament for my church tree which will be in blue and white with a Winter Wonderland theme.

Vickie, whose blog is A Stitcher's Story, sent me a couple of pages from a magazine (Just Cross Stitch I think) with a lovely design for my tree. I've already started stitching, although I'm not doing the wording, thanks Vickie.

Great design from Vickie

I couldn't finish posting without sharing a photo of these gorgeous hand made notelets - Gill made them and they were part of my goody bag at the Needlecraft Haven Meet Up - they are beautiful, thanks Gill
