To show and not to show
...or vice versa. Here's a couple of things I can't show - a sneak peek of the October bag testing, and a sneak peek of something else which I worked on which I'm not going to tell you about until Tuesday (such a tease, I know!)
And here's something else I did - add setting triangles to a number of these basket blocks which I won from the block lotto on about.com quite a while back now. The one above is going to figure again on the blog in a few days time when I hit my 2 year blogversary.
The two below are for other purposes - the one on the left will be to keep, the one on the right will be a gift for a friend. I will probably make a few more - one for auction at the school's Christmas Fair, for instance - but fairly soon I think I will get tired of them and give a few of them away (without the setting triangles).
And finally, inspired by Angela, who is finishing all her mum's cross-stitch UFOs and Vicki, who is working on her daemon cross-stitch UFO, I decided to make a concerted effort to do some hand work (mostly cross-stitch, probably) in the evening instead of spending quite as much time on the laptop (when I used to have only a regular computer, I couldn't watch telly and read blogs at the same time - now that we also have a laptop, well...) Anyway, I shan't give it up entirely, but I am going to try not to get the laptop out before 10 - given how late I stay up, this should still give me plenty of blogging and email time...
So, here's my cross-stitch of the moment - this one hasn't been sitting around too long, but I do need to finish it off. I worked on it some tonight - filled in the middle section of the waterfall and started on the left-hand side. I am not going to show my progress daily, probably weekly or so. Assuming there is any progress!
