ABC BOW week 14: L is for Ladder and Lollipop

and ladybird ...

I tried something a little different this time round.  I think I should have practiced my picture a few more times before committing him to embroidery, but all in all I don't think he's too bad.  Well, apart from the pencil marks I still need to get off the fabric.  And his wing is a bit spazzie.  Baby steps though, right?!

L is for ladybird

I'm trying something different for M as well, and then I'm back to the embroidery in the book.  My excitement at thinking outside the square will have come to an end then.  

What have you been doing this week?  Apart from getting all confused from me posting mid-week last week and then getting back on track today.  How annoying is that, right?!  We have got the Christmas tree up and some (but not all) of the Christmas presses organised.  It's nice to be getting on track a bit after us all being grotty.  I feel like we're coming back up for air.  Before you know it I'll be replying to comments and looking at bloggy loveliness again. *gasp*

There's nothing like the smell of a real Christmas tree.  I wish this was a scratch and sniff blog so you could smell our lounge.  It's loverly!

Now show us your ABC blocks.

I'm hoping M is for Megan and you're going to embroider a mini Tula Pink quilt ;-) Loving the use of that other technical term spazzie. Hope you are all well on the mend now.
