This month the challenge piece we chose at Needlecraft Haven was this one from Lynn at Happiness is Cross Stitching. The album is here. Only a couple of finishes so far this month, I think everyone has been too busy with holidays and summer activities.
I finished mine as an little ornament (I know, how boring am I?) to hang in my kitchen, and I couldn't resist turning my teapot and cup into blue and white Cornish Ware. Its backed with a blue and white striped fabric (natch), and I made a little hanger from some artfully rusted (ie acidentally left in the garden) wire and blue and white beads.
On the crafty front, I've been playing with my Cuttlebug and I've made some little vintage-inspired heart ornaments.
I'll leave you with a picture of Bill the foster-cat. Here we see him failing to grasp the concept of the cat flap...
