NANA'S NEEDLE CASE

I started the embroidery for Nana's Needle Case a couple of years back, there is quite a bit of embroidery in this project as you will see in my photos.  I'm not making it for anyone in particular and not sure if I want it for myself yet or not so every now and again I would pick it up and do a little bit of embroidery.  I completed all the embroidery just recently and am very happy with all the finished pieces.  Now I need to make the needle case. I haven't put a time frame on this as I have a few other projects on the go at the moment, as we all do.......

BESPOKE BABY BLANKET

My knee operation went well and recovery is good.  I started back at work Monday of last week.  My knee is still a little sore at times but overall I am happy with it.  The surgeon says it takes six weeks for it to plateau out and the way it is at that point is the way it will be.  
 
I managed to do quite a bit of embroidery during the day light hours and I worked on this at night, I managed to complete this in about 3-1/2 weeks which I was very chuffed about, the cluster rows take a while to do.  This is the finished baby blanket, it measures approx. 35ins x 52 ins plus the border.  I have taken the photo on the kitchen table at work..
 

Here is a photo of the clusters up close.  A very effective pattern and this is my first go at this pattern.  I am currently working on another one which has more colours and looks really cute.  Looking forward to showing that one to you soon.

MY VINTAGE KITCHEN CONTINUES

I am going in for day surgery tomorrow - I have a tear in my Medial Meniscus in my left knee.  I will be at home for nearly two weeks, going back to work on Monday 17 August.  I have an embroidery project I started recently, "Embroidery Work Roll" by Fairies in My Garden which I purchased maybe 4-5 years ago.  I will do this during the day light hours.
 
 
My crochet projects will keep me busy during the night time. I am working on two crochet projects at the moment, a lovely colourful baby blanket.  This set of colours completes the colour pattern.  I am really enjoying the pattern however it is quite time consuming with all of the clusters in the pattern.
 


Another baby blanket, I put a photo of the one above on FB and I have an order for this one, so it is a "commissioned bespoke piece" LOL...............


 
And finally to show you my latest completed stitcheries in "My Vintage Kitchen" by Jenny of ELEFANTZ, these are blocks, 4, 5 & 6.
