I couldn't resist making a little table top display on this cabinet,all my Annie dolls,red and white journals etc....make a pretty display when I come into the room,makes me smile each time I see it.
I'll try and post more pictures as I finish things in my sewing room,I still have lots to do but with small steps I'll get there eventually :)

This is another crocheted blanket I started working on over my Christmas break,I'll work on it over my lunch breaks at work till it becomes to big to be a portable project.I love the lacey effect this stitch creates.....I'll post more photo's as it becomes bigger,my aim is to try and have it finished ready to use this winter.
I made the second blanket with the pink edging for my sister Anne who was worrying right alongside me.I thought it would be nice for her to have her own blanket so in secret I stitched this blanket up for her for one of her Christmas gifts last year.I think she can guess now why I said for her to call me before she dropped in so I could put the kettle on was a ruse so I could quickly hide it away when she was visiting LOL.....she had noooo idea!

No you're not seeing double check the date on the stocking,I found this second Rudolph stocking in the same condition as the other one a little later after gifting the first one to my sister Anne so out came the stuffing and VOILA..... another Rudolph has come out of the cupboard or in this case out from inside the magazine that was inside the drawer in my sewing room!
I traced and stitched up this heart today while trying to avoid the heat outside,if you'd like to make up one of your own click on this web addy http://hannequilt.blogspot.com/ as she's offering it free for you to make just make sure you abide by Hanne's rules of giving.....I think it's appropriate that the word "SIMPLIFY" is part of this embroidery as that's the word I've chosen to try and live by for 2012.This heart now hangs up in my sewing room to remnd me,thanks Hanne for your generosity!
Another thing I've been working on are these crocheted stars,I'm making them into a banner for my sewing room and have now started on a red and white one for this Christmas,I'm planning on being more organised this year.....I'll see how that pans out when work and uni are added to the mix LOL.
