Meet Shamus and A Bit Of Embroidery

 I just love this little fella, my feelings were quite mixed as I started to crochet all the individual parts but once he was assembled I quite fell in love with him he has such a sweet face don't you think.😀

Shamus the seagull will join the rest of the sea creatures that we are creating to decorate our Mariner in early Summer. In the meantime he is sat on my stairs I may make a couple of friends to keep him company, time permitting.

You can find the paid pattern for Shamus here he is called Marvin in the pattern but he looked like a Shamus to me.😂

I have completed the month of February on the Year Of Doodles Stitchery

This is a lovely project, it's nice to pick it up and sew a few stitches now and then. I'm looking forward to starting March and picking out the colours is part of the fun. I'm thinking greens, yellows, purples and pinks probably similar to February, they are my favourite colours after all.

and I started the heart stitchery I showed you last week...

I'm enjoying this too, just taking it nice and slow, I'm going to enjoy sewing this this afternoon and the good news is days are getting longer and because we have more natural light there are more sewing hours to enjoy.

I hope you all have a peaceful Sunday and week ahead, see you next time.😘😘

Love Hearts

Thank you for all the lovely comments in my last post, I am really enjoying the Year Of Doodles stitchery and the month of February is coming along fine in fact I have almost finished it.  

I have been looking for another stitching project something small with a heart theme to add to my heart themed collection after all I don't think that you can have too many hearts around you and this month being the month of love is a great time to start one I think, what about this...
You can download the free pdf here
and just because Valentines day will be with us next week I made some love bugs 

Cute don't you think? you can find the pattern for them here

Tea anyone?

I'm in the mood for making fiddly things right now which is just as well because this little tea set fit that bill to perfection and I think it was worth the effort it's so cute.  This is destined for our Marina yarn bombing operation which is taking place this Summer, we are trying to decide how best to display it, we are thinking of having a picnic table so I'm planning to make other edible projects too. You can find the pattern for the tea set here

This starfish has put in an appearance as well

At the moment I'm busy crocheting a crab I mean to say what else would you be doing on a Sunday haha

Have a great Valentine's Day sending love and hugs your way😘😘
