The hat is being modelled by one of my bears that usually sit on my bed during the daytime as I didn't have a real life baby to put it on and I thought a photo of it in situ would show off the hat better.
I have decided on my next UFO - have gone for something quite easy and that to be honest doesn't need much stitching to be done. It's called Friends are Gifts and I've actually done all the cross stitch part of it but I need to do the back stitch and french knots. It's meant to be a wall hanger with a bow attached to it, but I seem to have misplaced the ribbon so I think I might finish it off as a mini quilt wall hanging instead - there's where the real challenge comes in as I don't really do what I call 'real' sewing.
I will give myself until the end of March, which to some may seem a long time but the next week is very busy for me with work and also having to travel up to Swindon for a funeral on Friday - it also gives me time to hunt around for some nice fabric to turn it into a mini quilt.
After finishing work I called in to help a work collegue with some coursework that she is having problems with - we managed to do some of it, but have agreed that we need to try and finish the rest of it off when we have a few quiet moments at work! Also some of it I think needs some guidance from our manager too.
I've now set the breadmaker to work so that I don't have to go shopping until tomorrow - to be honest I prefer it and it always smells so lovely in the kitchen when it's cooking. I have a couple of cards I need to try and get made later - DH is at out this evening so I've no excuse not to get them done.
