Yay ... Photos!

I install one thing to stop all those unwanted adds from loading and slowing things down ... and looks like it may have wanted to block me loading pics ... so temporarily 'disable' and we're up and loading.

Another storm just passed over and we still have power ... win win!

Off to make a cuppa and continue with the next dish cloth ...

How Did That Happen?

Wow for OPAM November ... I have several finishes this month ... I'm thanking the craft fairies for sprinkling something magic around ... it's the only reason I can think of.

Earlier this month I finished 3 small projects I began in September, the tea cosy and 2 teddies. Then I knitted up the blue 'Christmas Story' dishcloth.

On Monday I made it to our patchwork group day and made 6 small Christmas ornaments, stitching the buttons on at home that night.

Also thanks to Friday night's storm and the power going out for over 40 hours ... I have the green 'Christmas Story dishcloth finished.

Of course now just when I have something to share ... my pictures don't want to load into my blog!

Off to boil the kettle and have a coffee ... maybe they'll load later?  Hope your weekend has been gremlin free     >^..^<

FNSI, CTTY and 1 Xmas Item

Seems a lot for one small dish cloth to live up to but I finished it off on Friday night and it's going in the gift draw ready for Christmas ... which scarily is getting very close.

Thank you Wendy and Anthea for keeping the fun and friendship in crafting.  Pop over to 1 Xmas Item A Month after the 25th to see more lovely projects.

My next dishcloth is going to be in green ... just like our lawn at the moment after some lovely rain and also this little friend who was busy having dinner on the outside of my kitchen window.

No Power, No Sew

Friday night sewing just didn't happen for me :(  Once I was ready to sit and stitch, a storm was almost upon us and by the time I'd gone around the house checking windows ... packing towels under the back door ... the power went out! Nothing left to do but go to bed and listen to the rain on the roof and watch the light show outside.

I think we received about an inch of rain Friday night ... missed out last night and it's already steaming up for today ... more storms forecast. Head the warnings, be prepared and stay safe.

I haven't been able to access my bloglovin for a few weeks now so I finally gave up yesterday and have started again from scratch ... giving Feedly a go.

I'm heading off-line to do a little stitching ... happy Friday night with Cheryll and Friends

November Finishes?

Just maybe there is a chance that these little projects will make it over the finish line ... I don't have a good track record for finishes this year.

First is my day 2 stitchery from SDDO ... completed and all cut out ready for the sewing machine.

While I was cutting, these 2 stitcheries from Day 1 had all their bits and pieces cut out ready for the machine too.

Someone thinks she's a bit of a clever clogs...standing on mum's lunch.

Now for some Sunday sewing.
