I have four large pots of these bright pink ones to put outside once spring has arrived and is well underway..........
Here's my completed Wattle HEX from StitchMAP. I chose to stitch an Acacia Purpureapetala which has purple flowers, instead of the usual cream- yellow flowers of the wattle.
This was fun!
StitchMAP with a challenge to create a wrist band bracelet following some of Blogland's tutorials. Here's my first one completed with beads, lace, french knots, a pretty button, and a button wrap I stitched with blanket stitches across two threads of #5 perle cotton.
And then, I got a little carried away........
I made another, and pinned 3 more for stitching......
and I thought I had better wrap it all up and get back to my CQJP tree skirt and my wrapping cloth............
but this distraction continued........
with another 3, the first one with a beaded dangle just begun,
the second with ribbon and lace flowers,
the third with a bit of lace....hmmmnn, I wonder what else?
and then I told myself I had to stop!
I needed to get back to my tree skirt and my wrapping cloth piece #11. I was quite stern with myself, and when I sat down to create that Sunday evening, I slapped my wrist and put away the bracelets.
"You have to tat snowflakes," I told myself. And so I did.
1 lonely little snowflake about the size of a nickel.........
well,......... that's not going to cover much of the tree skirt, is it?
Now, March is almost over, and I haven't made much progress on my CQJP. I've been distracted.
But, now I have to get back to it.......that is if I can keep away from those fabric bracelets!
We have snow, rain, and freezing rain in tomorrow's forecast. Like the pelargoniums, I am awaiting spring.
I did see the chipmunk out under the bird feeder filling his cheeks with seeds, so there's one sign spring is on the way!
Dovey was there, too!
Hope wherever you are, you have sunshine and time to create.
Thanks for visiting.
