Tuesday morning in England, weather grey and coolish for summer. I've just noticed whilst taking these photos that I have missed eyes and a nose from these last two. I'm still unsure how to finish the project. I have the beads and things for the individual blocks but not sure of the sashing.
A new sew along starts today, wool Christmas ornaments, which I hope to start if I have the right colours.
First snowman who looks bare without his nose and stars.
Second snowman minus his eyes.
I hope everyone is staying safe and well, I have spent a lot of time in the garden and at my allotment.
Finished these two a week ago but very slow at getting them photographed. I need to finish them all before adding embellishments. I have found some pretty star buttons, now to find suitable buttons for the snowman's coal buttons.
I have spent most of the month of May at my allotment, digging, sewing and weeding, it is beginning to pay off but the weather is so dry in my part of England that I've nearly used up my limited water. There is none on site, only what I can save from the shed roof when it rains.
I've already started on the last two snowmen.
I haven't been able to find suitable sashing yet, I won't be dashing off to the shops, even when we're allowed.
Due to the strange times we live in now, I have lost track of time and days, dates etc. Here are the next two Snowmen blocks, they need the finishing embellishments.
I need to add something to this one, not sure what.
I'm wondering if they could be added to a Christmas tree skirt. Just four more to do. I'm looking for my next project.
A lot of my days are now filled with digging at my allotment, we are allowed to go as exercise, it got rather neglected at the end of last year. The greenhouse is full of plants waiting for warmer weather.
Another Advent Calendar for my sister's Craft Fair. I finished the sewing earlier this month and just finished adding the buttons last night. I made a little drawstring pouch to store the little felt pieces.
