Back in 2005 (I think) I got a few of Heart in Hand's monthly Wool Whimsys in a sale, meaning to get them all and stitch them all together on one piece of linen. Several years on and the kits have been languishing. Full price for the rest is just too much for tiny kits, so I've decided to stitch the ones I have and maybe do something cushion-like with them.
And here's May:
So cute. And so small - each stitched up in a couple of hours. I have February, March and June to do still. I actually stitched the July one almost 5 years ago (wow!) - you can see it here.
It's a funny week so far. I'm waiting for details of 13 projects that I've agreed to take on. There's nothing I can to do for them right now so I'm just stitching, gardening and reading. What's the betting they'll all arrive at once and it'll be manic? And yesterday we discovered we have a gas leak. The neighbours have been smelling gas for a while so called the gas people. It took him a long time to work out which house had the problem so we all ended up sitting out at the front drinking wine. And now we're disconnected and waiting for another gas man. So more hanging around waiting...
