More stuff I have made...

For ages I have been thinking of doing some cross stitch again, I say again but it was almost 20 years ago when I last did it and then I think it was some dogs for my mum which she later rejected.
So with this memory deep rooted inside here are some recent attempts:
The Boo Fucking Hoo one is ace and often something I want to shout at whingey friends.

This one is for twinny and her flat.
Talking of twinny, she recently got engaged on hearing the news the first thing I did was buy a shit load of bias binding from ebay. 1200m of it and started making bunting. I ruddy love bunting. The plan for the wedding is to have a party in a field, decorated with lots and lots of bunting. Here is what I have done so far:
not even made a dent in the 1200m.

It was my weird obsession of bunting which inspired this tote bag:

I also got to use up lots of scraps of fabrics.
I went for a wander near where I live and came across this amazing wool (will find out the name) It was brilliant and in amazing colours. Although it is not cheap I picked up 2 balls, each making one scarf each, which is long enough to double over and wrap round your neck.
This is in great Autumnal colours.

This is in lots of different pinks, which reminds me of my hair.
I am going to carry on with the cross stitch and bunting for now and will try and get a dress done for twinny.
Thanks for looking and I will be back again soon with more things I have made.
