Red noses....

As the first chilly days of autumn appear, I end up with a rotten stinking cold - you can tell I'm a summer lovin' gal can't you?!!

So, due to the fact that my head feels like it's stuffed with cotton wool, my nose is doing a fantastic impression of Niagara Falls and my body feel like an eighty year old that's just ran a marathon, not much stitching has happened here these last few days. 

I did manage to finish this....


Rudolf and I have the bright red nose in common! This is going to be made in to a funny gift for my son for Christmas. I have five other reindeer to stitch - I know there should be eight others, but for this gift, I only need five more - I'll show you the finished gift nearer to Christmas.

I find stitching on plastic canvas to be quite a slow process and I end up with an ache in my fingers, so I'm going to pace myself with each of these little fellas. Thank heavens it's only October, but, knowing me, I'll probably still end up scrambling at the last minute to get this gift finished! 

Anyhoo, I'm off to have another hot lemon drink (or maybe a hot toddy?!!) and hopefully get rid of this cold.

Until next time...happy stitching!
Rhona

I hope you feel better soon. Love the little guy. Never tried plastic canvas but I can only imagine how hard it would be on the fingers.
