See - I said there would be fewer posts.
Although I didn't really stitch much in December I've made really good progress on my pilot piece and hope to finish it shortly which will mean a return to my ordinary stitching and hopefully more frequent blog posts (cos it's really got nothing to do with my procrastination or laziness or anything like that - honest).
Quilting - I made this pillow...
... at another Jo-Ann's class, and over the Christmas break my parents were visiting and Mum and I went to a class together and made these table runners:
Mine is the top one - it's a bit hard to tell in the photo but you can just tell that it's got stippling around the edges as well as around the candies which makes that one mine.
One other distraction (sort of) from stitching lately is that I've been making great strides in relieving myself of some of my many magazine pages that I've torn out and kept over the years. I've still got thousands, but I've also put into the recycling bin a very good number and it's such a good feeling to get rid of them even though I'm chucking charts. Gasp, how could I? Actually, very easily it turns out. It was harder when I was thinking that someone else might want them, but now I've cured myself of that notion I don't care anymore and I'm tossing with abandon and it feels great.
