Little stitchery was a freebie from Lynette Anderson Designs.

Almost missed April!

Gosh it's quiet in the Workshop this month!

For me was only when I saw Narelle's post that I realised
yep, the 25th means 1 Xmas post time.

It's a bit tricky thinking 
about Christmas in April for us here in Australia.
On the 25th my head was full of the other National 'occasion'.

On the plus side,
it has meant getting this post together has been a 
lovely light ending to the month.
After all, the bravery we honour is about respect for the lives we get to live 
due to their sacrifices.
I reckon that absolutely includes the joy making Christmassy things :)

This month I have been working on
the other progressive project planned for this year.

Did You Hear A Pin Drop?

It seems to be very quiet in the workshop this month ... quiet enough to hear a pin drop.

Hope you are all simply busy with projects and will be back to share with us all in May.

April - Made It!

Finished the knitting last night and quickly joined this morning. A knitted jar cover for the gift box as a little gift filler...using up wool leftovers a bonus.

This was my March project completed ... the 2nd washcloth is still in ball form pictured above with the jar cover.

Happy Christmas Crafting

Aussie Bush Christmas

One day late for month of March item but I have a good excuse - we are travelling around northern Queensland at the moment and most of you will appreciate there is a distinct lack of telecommunication up here.  Currently at Dimbulah with internet access so I took the opportunity to post my Christmas item. The photo is not very good. It is a Smee Design called Aussie Bush Christmas. Printed in colour on 100% cotton. Stitched in DMC threads. The pattern is mainly backstitched but I have added a few different stitches as I got bored with the backstitch! Only the embroidery is finished this month as I will have to wait until I get home in July to add the borders to make a lovely wall-hanging for one of my overseas children.
