Barbara - The Flashing Scissors (2018 -1)


Long time no see!

I settled down, Friday evening in front of the TV, knowing our sweet little monsters (that's cats, in case you didn't guess) were fast asleep upstairs, and started work on this cute little kit:

Love & Roses
The Flashing Scissors
"Love & Roses" brooch
I've written more about "Love & Roses" HERE, I hope you'll come over to see.

The rest of the weekend I joined in with Joyszce's IH&SW which helped me move my "Stitch by Stitch" project along very nicely.

Were you stitching along?

A Trilogy of Stitching for FF update...

Great progress was made on all three of my Friday Frolics choices yesterday - the Winter Olympics are certainly a great excuse for some stitching time!

1. Country Farm Sampler, a Blackwork Kit by Eva Rosenstand


I have nearly finished the Church and I stitched the sweet little girl.

2. F is for Friend by Heartstring Samplery



The dress on the left-hand friend.

3. Santa's Sleigh Ride by JBW Designs



I finished the reindeer and his harness and started on the tree in the sleigh - this may be a Happy Dance by the end of the weekend, fingers crossed!

So, that is my Friday Frolics for this week.

How about you?  How did you go?

A trilogy of stitching for this Friday's Stitching....

Because I am obsessed with watching the Winter Olympics - Go Aussie, Go! - I have chosen three WIPs to work on this Friday.  This is to keep up with Rotation Relay Winter Olympics Challenge for the WIPocalypse FB group.  

Luckily for me, I tick lots of boxes this weekend as it is IHSW and FNSI, also.

1. Country Farm Sampler, a Blackwork Kit by Eva Rosenstand

2. F is for Friend by Heartstring Samplery

3. Santa's Sleigh Ride by JBW Designs

Tune back in tomorrow to see how much I get done on each project.

My update from last Friday

Hi friends,

last Friday I pulled out my Village ABC again (a decision by the Random Number Generator) and started the letter "F".

I couldn't stitch lot but the start is made.

Have a nice week, you all.

Frosty Hopes Update...

Well, Frosty Hopes didn't get as much love as I would have liked as I integrated it into my Rotation Relay for the Winter Olympics WIPocalypse 2018 SAL (FB group) but it did progress....



Thanks for visiting,

Frosty Hopes... Just Nan is my choice for Friday Frolics today.  Truly appropriate as I am just watching the Aussies compete in the Moguls at the Winter Olympics.

The last time I stitched on this was in April last year - you can read all about it in this post.

What are you stitching today?
