Well it's over I week since I last posted, still can't seem to get back into blogging mode. I'm sure the dark, cold winter weather has a lot to do with it. I just want to snuggle up on the sofa and do NOTHING!
However, I haven't been totally lazy. Yesterday I was up at the Children's Hospital making Valentine's cards with some of the kids. The children range from toddlers to teenagers so we have to do something quite simple to suit all ages, so we did lots of gluing and sticking, and they all had a great time.
I've also a couple of UFOs (unfinished objects) on the go ...

This is my one in it's half finished state, with hills, heather and a little stream. I'll show you it when it's finished - but don't hold your breath!
There's still a lot of work to do on it - machine stitching, hand stitching and maybe adding some little 3D elements.
This is my next UFO - a 1000 piece puzzle which I got at Christmas. I haven't done a puzzle for years and it's so addictive once you get started! It's nice to do something different for a change though.
Finally, I do have something finished - a late entry for the Artful Times Challenge, which is HAPPY NEW YEAR (Chinese that is!)
I had already pre-sewn strips of oriental fabric together ages ago, so I just added some stiffener, backing fabric and a ribbon (which I attached a chinese coin to) and then zig-zagged around the edges to make a bookmark.
I have been very remiss in my commenting too so I'll sit down this evening and do some catching up.
Thanks for coming to visit and listening to all my waffling!
