There has been a little bit of secret sewing going at Stitcherydo HQ so I cannot show you yet what it is. Here is just a little glimpse. Can you tell what it is yet?
Inspiration came from some lovely fabrics from Dotty Dolly and I have completed the first block for the Noughts and Crosses quilt by Trish Harper. If you fancy making one yourself then the pattern can be obtained from Lizzie at Broderie blog.
My mum taught me to crochet when I was a teenager and recently I have taken it up again. The skills are a bit rusty but with the help of YouTube and Pinterest it is coming along nicely. I bought a lovely crochet hook by Rico and it is a delight to use. Being a bit chunkier on the handle it fits better and doesn't make my hand so sore. The yarn is Rico Baby Essentials.
Wandering around my garden was this beautiful pheasant. I have posted before of the wildlife that wander into my garden. I live less than a mile from the town centre and this creature belongs in the countryside so I wonder where he appeared from. He strutted around for a while and then disappeared around the back of the summer house hotly followed by the tabby Tom from over the road. Hope it survived.
I hope you will listen to this YouTube clip that appeared on my Facebook page. A star is in the making and I cried. I like something to move me to tears. It is 4 minutes long but please watch it to the end. Father and daughter Jorge and Alexa Narvaez. Dad has the most gorgeous voice.
If you enjoyed that then there are more on youtube. Some of you may already know about them but they have just come to my radar.
