Friday Freebie: Spring Dance

Happy Friday! I hope this posts finds you well despite all that's going on in the world right now. With spring round the corner I find myself drawn yet again towards the new DMC colours for the Friday freebie as they are so bright and cheerful - sadly I wasn't able to get the colours right in my designing program so below you will find a photo of the threads themselves so you can see how beautiful they are together.

The Next Mystery SAL: The Spring Mystery

Many of you will remember the result of the first Mystery SAL I did on NYE (and a bit before and a bit after depending on your time zone). People had so much fun they wanted to do more so here is the next one! I asked in the Facebook group if people were ok with some pre-stitching (doing some work before the SAL actually starts - at a slower pace) and the response was positive so... we will be starting a little earlier and do a slightly larger pattern than the NYE one.

Welcome to the next instalment of the Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL! It's the 7th week and we *still* haven't finished the first band! The good news is that there will be a new band in 2 weeks' time - which means that today is reveal time for the next band!

Friday Freebie: Fob a Month - February

Welcome back! It's Friday so time for another freebie - this time the February Fob a Month pattern. Like last month I made a pattern inspired by the colour of a flower - daffodils this time as they start showing themselves around the middle of the month and really brighten my days, more so than crocuses which are too small to be seen from my window.

WIP Wednesday

Last week the Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler looked like this. Normally you would not have to play spot the difference but as I mentioned yesterday I used the seam ripper as much as the needle and didn't get much of anywhere with it so I put it aside before I flung it into a bin.

Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL: Part 6

Welcome to the rather late edition of the new time of the SAL! Late because I was side tracked and forgot today was new time day and thought I still had plenty of time - opps. I do apologise for this and hope I don't do it again - I'll certainly try not to!

Friday Freebie: Ornament of the Month - February

Welcome to the second part of the Ornament of the Month for this year! This month we are doing purple again, but this time a bit lighter. I did find time to do part of a pre-stitch this month and it's a good thing too! What looked fantastic on paper turned out to look like a nasty mess once stitched. Fortunately after a couple of tries I found what I liked and looks nice!

WIP Wednesday

Last week when you saw this I was here having done as much as I was planning to on week four of the Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL

Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL: Part 5

Welcome to the fifth week of the SAL! I hope you all had a good stitching week, I know I did but that's for another post. This week we get to the rump of the beasts but not yet as low as the tails.

There is an important SAL announcement at the bottom of the post so please read it all!

Friday Freebie: Floral Hearts

This week's Friday freebie started when I was extending last week's Friday freebie to make the Monday surprise freebie (keeping up still? lol) One of the "fabrics" I added was this one and I loved it so much I made a pattern using it straight away!
