No year in review. No resolutions. Just ticking over into another day. One foot in front of the other.
Or whatever you do (or do not) celebrate.
Here, have a migraine-inducing animated gif to get you off to a good start!
Baps, buns, rolls, whatever you call them, here are some green olive, sun-dried tomato and parmesan cheese ones.
Just to prove (ha! See what I did there?! What do you mean “No”?) that I’m not a one-trick crafting-pony.
Oh, and the cross stitch bookmark is finished but I forgot to take a photograph of it before I wrapped it, so you’ll just have to wait until after Wednesday to see it!
Well, it’s all up/down* hill from here! I’m really looking forward to/dreading* the next 6 months as we head towards the equinox!
I had a moment of mild panic last night when I couldn’t remember how to do French Knots.
As you can see I did, in fact, remember.
First World Problem of the highest order!
It’s not all success around here though. I attempted to do the wording under the flowers and it … wasn’t good.
I pulled it back and I’m making an executive decision to leave it off. I really need to work on my backstitch skills!
* delete as appropriate.
I’m currently ruining the cross stitch bookmark with my attempts at back stitch.
Going better, is my Re-Wrapped Cardigan which now has not one, but two fronts!!!!
I’ve been leaving the next bit until I’m a little more awake so it’s been in this state since Monday evening!
Well, I’m off to have a mini-Christmas today with someone who will be jetting off to colder climes in a few days. I think this makes 3 false-dawn/early Christmases this year. I ain’t complaining!
