Skulls and ??

Well it's done.

Very pleased with the way it's turned out. The fabric is actually a lot pinker than this but I used the camera phone. Now it'll join the others in a drawer until Jamie does enough suitable designs for me to make my planned throw! ( No pressure Jamie!)

Now onto the next  - choice of fabric was difficult but I think I've settled on Parchment from Sparklies

The design will be Circle of Life, again from White Willow Stitching

I'm not sure if I'm going to put the background in yet. We'll see. I have plenty of fabric.

2014 Craft Challenge

Blowing the dust and cobwebs away... Gosh it's quiet in here!

I've joined a challenge with some friends to do something "creative" every day in 2014. Whether I'll manage this remains to be seen but it's got me picking up my needle again after a long hiatus.

Even the dolls house has been dusted off and the other half persuaded into doing some wiring for me (which is why it was stalled). I've no excuse now though not to get on with it.

Firstly though, what I've been doing since Jan 1st

Here's a stitch project that has been lying idle for a couple of months. Time to get on and finish it I think. There are a number of other designs that are in the same style and I want to create a themed throw/quilt out of them.

Progress up to 1st January

And as  at this afternoon. If I crack on who knows I might even finish it this evening.

The design is Tribal Skull by Jamie Larson at White Willow Stitching.

The fabric is called Fuchsia Fizz and is a 28ct evenweave but I've had it so long that I can't remember who the dyer is. To be honest I never thought I'd find a project to stitch on it!
