|The long trailing ends of yarn obviously still need to be trimmed and sewn in.
Today I dug out the box of felt and spent some time making. I need to keep the ornaments I am making simple and easy to make if I am going to sell them at this Christmas Market or else they won't be cost effective at all. So I had a play.
Liking the blanket stitch but it is too time consuming
and also uses up too much perle.
|Straight stitches are better and quicker,
but that 'snowflake' is a total disaster!
|Better, but the snowflake is decidedly wonky.
|I think this is too twee for me.
I tried it but honestly can't see me making more,
unless someone could convince me they would sell.
I don't think they would.
I don't have to worry about dinner because Emily made it yesterday. (I'm telling you, teach your children to cook because the payback is fantastic!)
So I have a lovely bolognaise sauce simmering in the oven. The bonus is that we put red wine in our bolognaise sauce. Not a whole bottle though. There are leftovers. I had a glass last night. I think I'll have another tonight. These chilly nights are perfect for a full bodied red. It would be silly to let it go to waste after all!
That would be my evening sorted. Maybe my little embroidered snowflakes on the felt ornaments wouldn't be so wonky if I had a glass of wine first.
