Emma's Welsh Pressie :)

My friend Emma has been learning welsh so that she can teach her baby son and help him when he goes to welsh school, so awesome <3

She's been working really hard and had her exam recently, around the same time as her birthday poor thing. I thought it was only right that I make her birthday present educational as well as decorative so I stitched her a welsh swear hehe! I won't tell you what it means, you can google it!

Crazy January Challenge 2011 - Project 5 Finished and Project 1 Update

Sorry for the lack of posting lately, it's been a super crazy time for me with work and life and everything else.

Project 5 was what I'm now calling my Horrific Hardanger, it was an awful kit, the fabric was a really rough and uneven weave, not great for a beginner! it was terrible to cut because it frayed so badly but I got there in the end, here is the result - full of mistakes but it is finished!

Here's the latest update on project 1, I've now completed half a page and I'm loving every stitch! The confetti has been trying at times but seeing the results more than makes up for it :)

I'm off to Glastonbury tomorrow so there won't be any stitching done this weekend, I'll be too busy getting muddy! :D

TUSAL - May Update

Here is the latest TUSAL update, it's been a fairly busy stitching month, lots of work on Blue Rose Fairy (which I need to post another update of!), my embroidery and other bits and bobs have given me a nicely filled jar this month :D
