I managed to finish the first building of eight (White Nights Part 5)on Saturday morning! So I'm still on target for a mid 2013 finish on this one. Here it is.
My Mum has come up with, as they say, a cunning plan. I am actually going to stitch Part 6, the corners, at the same time as Part 5. This should add interest between the buildings which are almost identical to each other.
Here is a close up collage of the said building.
Last week my LED Twig Tree was delivered. This has been bought to hang my Just Nan humbugs off, as I have got them on series order from The Silver Needle. It could also be used to hang Halloween stuff from in October, Christmas decorations in December, in fact it could turn into a themed tree. It also sheds quite a lot of light! What's more it was a bargain, less than half price (The Other Half thinks I'm mad). The only problem is that the stand it comes with is not very nice so the search was on to find a replacement. I tried a £4 glass vase from ASDA (Wallmart) but smashed it in the process. My Other Half's Auntie's ancient antique copper jug was OK but did not hide the transformer. In the end I found a ceramic 'Wave Vase' at Dunelm Mill which is perfect. This is what it looks like in the corner of my living room.
I made great progress on Mary Wigham yesterday, I feel that the end is in sight with this one.
This week I'm going to have a new start with Simply Spring from Waxing Moon Designs. This is the last one in their Simply Series that I have in my stash.
I'm off to make a start whilst ignoring the Other Half's comments about how hideous and in poor taste the LED tree is, I know he will make them. This, by the way, might not be the end of the LED tree story, Watch this space!
