January

I have also been doing some Mosaic work on my lounge floor.
I will post some photos later on with my progress.
I have also decided that this type of work is a great work out for the leg and but muscles.
Believe me some days I haven't even been able to get up the stairs from all of the crawling around I've been doing.
Dabbled with a little bit of stitching using my cottage garden threads
The colours in this one are super cute.
 With all of the hard work I've been doing I rewarded myself with a new machine
His name is Bernie and believe me he is one smooth operator.
I'll be just fine with him once I finally get through reading the giant phone book size manual.
This is my practice pieces
I just need some more time to play.
