a Christmas gift

in 2014 the finished works were few... health problems caused me to have long periods while I didn't feel like stitching or I had slightly sight problems and this caused me difficulties in doing it...

but at Christmas at least one thing was done! this little pattern, from Mani di Donna with buttons from Stitched Tales (I like her buttons so much!).

I made a little pillow of it to hang at Christmas and it became a present for one of my dearest friends.

I was very scared to make mistakes while I was sewing it as I have a very bad feeling with the sewing machine... it took me 2 long hours of concentration and I feared till the end to make something wrong... but I didn't!

and it came out really nice! I am so proud of it!!! I would like to stop to feel scared each time I sew with the sewing machine!!! LOL

SAL Jingle Lizzie Kate - june and july steps done with delay

I am very late in update this blog...

the truth is I didn't stitch too much and I am late in everything!!!

Let me see if I am at least able to update the blog with what I have done since August...

in August I also did this one

and in September this one

since then... this SAL has been completely forgotten by my needle... 

hope to pick it up again and finish it. I love these subjects and (at this point) I'd like to see them as decoration for next Christmas!!!
