 January was a slow month for me. I wasn't in the mood for sewing , nothing inspired me much. After consulting all my books and magazines I finally found some ideas.

 Jemima Puddleduck was sewn and now she is added to some other Beatrix Potter characters that I am slowly collecting.
A new patchwork for spring/summer is taking off. The first phase are the 68 hexagons which I have finished doing today.

This little bag is my other project that I am working on. I have labelled it my inbetween sewing job....something I can pick up at any time morning, noon , and night, adding little blocks of x-stitches and using up all left over strands of cotton.

So I can't say that I am bored at the moment.....happy stitching.

How very smart you look Mr.Tod your waistcoat.
He is just another of the numerous characters invented by B.Potter.
He will be put with some others previously sewn........hoping to do all of them eventually.

 Simple little xmas trees.Ideal for using as a parcel tag , or maybe as a table decoration placed as a little token on each dinner plate , or simply hanging on the xmas tree. Quick to make with great results.

Semplice piccoli alberelli, ideali per appendere al albero di natale, anche come decorazioni sul tavolo , immagini uno appogiato sul ogni piatto come piccolo dono , o forse usato anche legato a un pacco da regalo.......piccoli idea con grande effetto.
