I have set myself a new challenge for 2016. My stitching list is as usual quite long so I wanted something that I could stitch to take a break and would be completed quickly, a couple of nights at the most, so fun without encroaching on my main stitching time. I have set myself the challenge of stitching one scissor fob a month , for these I have chosen the theme woodland creatures, and my first one is the fantail and no walk in the bush is ever complete with out the company of a friendly little Piwakawaka the fantail . this tiny Fantail design comes from my friend Ann's needle roll she designed for a workshop at the Coromandel Guild Retreat in 2011 I did not do her workshop as I was teaching the other workshop at the same time but did stitch it later as a birthday gift for Annette of California Stitcher's blog.
My visit to the Christmas Shop last year added two little fantail birds to my bird collection for my little tree, and the Christmas decorations have been packed away and the birds are now on the tree, think I need a few more to improve the display, here are the new additions, the fantails.
What next.... well there are always the larger projects that must get done however I like Snowflower Diaries SAL and may give in to temptation! Is anyone else stitching it?Check it out here
