Thank goodness for a thoughtful son who provided his father with the gift of an iPad 18 months ago. Time to surf the web and time looking through Pinterest without that feeling of guilt I usually have. Also time to work on all my new hand stitching projects that I wasn't going to start.
At the moment I have four "new" projects and three older PIPs (Projects in Progress) hand stitching projects sitting on my work table. There are also two quilts in progress that I will return to once over my "confinement". Two days of hand stitching might just get one project finished and ready to piece together on the machine.
Recently spent time going over my blog posts and realised there are a few projects that I finished last year before Christmas that I had not shared on my blog. As the original idea for setting up this blog was a journal of projects I had been working on during the year I decided to add a page with photos of completed projects for 2014. If you would like to view that page it is on the menu bar below the blog title.

Last month I decided to try and start on my Christmas gift list. So far I have spent more time getting ideas from library books and Pinterest than I have making the items. But I have managed to finish a lovely cushion cover this week using the disappearing nine patch technique. As I haven't yet decided who to give it to, I thought I could share it with you.

Until next time, happy stitching.
