A New Year and Quaker pouch.

My first post for 2021 so I will start by wishing you all A Very Happy New Year. I wish you all Peace, Happiness, Health, and a year ahead where everyone will have the Covid vaccine and things will soon return to normal.

I wanted to share with you my first finish of 2021 – well my first sort of finish. The stitching on this beautiful little quaker pouch was finished in 2007, but as I have mentioned before I am trying to sort out and frame or finish works that are in my “Done Draw”, which I admit is getting to the stage where I shall be unable to close it if much more gets thrown into it. Anyway I managed to machine stitch a lining (yeh I managed to machine straight lines – well more of less straight lines) and then stitched the rest together by hand. Here is my finished pouch :-

Regarding my SAL and half way through the three week segment I am really pleased with the progress I have made, though obviously pictures are only shown on the due date. However one of my Christmas gifts was this beautiful chart.

This is the perfect size for one of my coffee tables and as I have everything in stock (though I am going to change the purple to a peachy shade), I am going to have a start on this. Then if I am doing well for a change with the SAL, I shall spend a week here and there on doing this alongside.

I have been really busy with cards but I cannot share any as they are all for friends and I know a number of them read this blog. February is a very birthday heavy month for me. I can however share a couple of January birthday cards. One being for my brother who would not be interested in looking at a stitching or crafting blog even if he would read a blog at all which I am most certain he wouldn’t lol. The other is for a friend in Canada and I am certain she is not a follower either.

As always I am sending HUGS for those that need them

I am one of those people who need to have busy hands so whether its stitching or papercrafting, I am always doing something. I also love being in the garden, though hubby does most of the work there these days.
