When you make a boo boo.....you make something new :)

Well blogger seems to have stuffed up again! I can't seem to seperate my pictures :(
Anyway the project below was meant to be a small pincushion but me being me I made the template too big and Voila.....So I had to think outside the square and work with what I had and change a few things around,I'm not sure if this will be a cushion or I'll staple it to a canvas for the wall??? decisions,decisions........
This is another project that's been hanging around trying to figure out what it will turn into and I finally decided to make it into a Christmas stocking...... I just love how both these projects have turned out maybe this year will be my year of finishing of things.....no promises though as life can and does throw a spanner in the works at any given time :)
Hopefully blogger fixes this new problem soon as it's a real pain not being able to write where I want to :( I'll be back later with a couple of other projects I've been working on.....no rest for the wicked they say so I must be really bad as I can't seem to stop!!

Love the Santa stocking. Great work.
I found a similar appliqued Santa in my recent reorganization - now I have another idea for finishing it. Thanks.

Whatever you decide to make out of it will be lovely. Cute stocking.

The santa stocking looks brilliant and the other would look great either as a cushion or on the wall.

Love both your projects. I wouldn't like to decide what to turn the pincushion into. It would look great either way. Love Santa. You really are ahead of the game for next Christmas! ;o)

I've been using Windows LiveWriter Barb....no problems there...and it's free and much faster to post and upload photos than Blogger too! (wonder if they'll give me a commission!!! LOL) Still, the photos of what you've made look wonderful!
