Christmas Ornies started!
I know this may sound silly. Very silly. But I have started my 2012 Christmas ornies in January.
There are a few reasons. There is an absolute luxury of tennis and cricket on here to watch at the minute, so I am watching. When that happens, I like something small on which to work - something I will get finished. More and more I am liking the thought of working on very small pieces. Which I probably will not even keep. I missed having a few to pass on this Christmas.
But more than that - I am going to play with the idea of making up a stock of them, and somehow selling a few near Christmas for the auxiliary of the hostel where my mother is.
But all the time experimenting with stitches and techniques on each one. And using a tiny bit of tatting on each.
And maybe a few other things - when I can find them all again. So this is the first one, just hand-pieced, as I was too lazy to get out the machine. I need to revisit piecing, as I can see some parallel lines on there - and them I do not like.
So I shall take it as a challenge to see if I can disguise them.
