“Robins” is the SPA theme this week and after leaving Nick to get on with most of the decorating of the “tree”, I had a bit of “me” time this afternoon. Apart from painting the row house assemblage/collage, creating a mini-canvas for TAW tomorrow and getting a bit too ‘painty’, I got out the sewing machine…
I couldn’t find any images of robins in my stash so I drew him. Well, he’s not too bad, is he?!! Lots of recycled elements in this stitched postcard – the background is a paper cast from a previous GPP Street Teams challenge; the threads are leftovers from fraying fabric pieces, the leaf ribbon was gifted to me by Patty (Magpie’s Nest) a long time ago; the red gauzy (gold holly), ribbon is from a gift last xmas which I just cut up and used for the hanger too!
I am still knitting happily in the evenings and have managed 3 pairs of cable wrist warmers so far (sent one pair to DH’s best bud yesterday!!) and am playing with some very hairy, mohair leftovers at the moment, knitting stripes – something I haven’t done since I was a kid!!!
Looking forward to seeing who goes into next week’s Strictly final – my ultimate line-up would be Kara, Pamela and any of the boys (though I have a soft spot for both Scott & Matt), and I shall be recording the X Factor final results too!
