A Quick Stitchy Update

Hi Blogger Friends

So this quick update and starts with a granny square

I then made a start on the next FWC Card Exchange. This time the theme is Christmas so I selected a Margaret Sherry Cover Kit as it has a lovely card mount for the design. Below is my progress so far

Next comes my progress on the All Our Yesterdays In the Poppyfields design

I then had a break from Cross stitching and made a start on a Garter Stitch Cowl. I am using some Crofter Chunky yarn that I had originally bought to make a cardigan, but the pattern was to complex for me, so as I live in scarves and cowls during the winter I decided to make a scarf/cowl and at least it is now being put to use.
I finally got around to starting this months Christmas ornament and below is my progress so far. I think I  may be a few days late in completing this one.
I did 6 hours work on the Polstitches Pixie SAL - Pansy below is my progress. I am really pleased with my fabric choice
and my final piece of stitching is from last night. I chose to have a little play and see if I could do the Wessex Stitchery shapes that are in this month edition of Mary Hickmott's New Stitches magazine. I apologise for the awful photo, but it was fun to do

Below are photos of my daughters new tattoo - although I would not want one I think this one is actually quite nice. Second photo is of a piece of my sons final art project for which he got a distinction. Apparently the art style is known as Outsider Art. And finally my attempt to take a photo of the Super moon - well you can see it isn't very good but I did try :-)

That is it for now
