During her break, she has done some of her favourite thing - stitching!
She found this beautiful fabric in the scrap box and decided it would be perfect surrounding a stitchery. It is all that's left of that fabric in their stash.
It is one of the few times Miss H has found the fabric before doing a stitchery.
Miss H decided to stitch up this beautiful pattern by Jenny of Elefantz to go with the fabric.
Isn't it coolio? The red roses are my favourite, although the pink daisy is a close second.
She also finished this cutie...
...and is part way through these noisy ducklings and their mummy.
Both the squirrel and the duckling train will be added to her Made for This quilt.
Miss H has also been busy with some crocheting.
After two failed attempts to make something with this ball of wool (one of the failed attempts turned into my coolio waistcoat), Miss H decided to make a set of dish cloths for the Mother for Christmas. (She did note that you are supposed to make them out of 100% cotton wool, but she has no idea what this is as she has lost the label - ah well, hopefully they will work.)
I can only show you one as the Mother has already see this one. In fact, this one perfectly matches my waistcoat. The other two are coming along nicely and look totally different. None are perfectly square or straight and this one curls up at the corners - but that is part of the joy of hand made things.
You may or may not remember Miss H's massive Grandmother's Garden quilt project. Well, she has been continuing on that as well.
Slow, slow, slowly...
She's not sure at the moment whether she loves hexagons or hates them.
Oh and in food news...
Miss H went to a friend's 21st and they had high tea! Because Miss H is gluten free now she had her own plate. Apparently it was delicious and did not at all taste like the usual nasty gluten free stuff that you get. I was definitely jealous of the brownie and banoffee pie cheesecake!
