I cheated on my....cross stitch! At least I felt like I had.
These last few days I have been spending time on my knitting. I even had a master class with my mother on Saturday. The reason for this was because I held the needles in a peculiar manner and was quite slow. So I decided that if I worked on my technique then I would improve. I am glad to say that the practice has been paying off - I made a tea cosy (I need a tea pot in order to finish it off) and am half way through a knitted Santa. I can see straight away that the tension is better, and that my knitting speed is increased. I am really happy with the progress and will post a pic of Santa (and his cute nose) when he is finished (any day now).
When I woke up this morning I felt guilty, I seem to have inherited my fathers catholic guilt without being a catholic. I thought I should be stitching when I was knitting and when knitting thought I should be stitching. So to try and make up for it I stitched a snowman today. I was going to put him in a card but I think he would make a great ornament. I found the pattern in a Joan Elliott book (I am a fan - lol!) and thought I would give it a go. After I started it I realised that I didn't have the exact colours or any gold beads. So as usual I made do with the colours I had and used some blue beads - I thought they would pass as snow better than the red ones I have!
So here is a pic of the little man and when I have finished off making him into an ornament I will post it again. I better get back to knitting Santa - he is armless and legless, mittenless, topless and hatless!
