Here goes again, I have just done a blog but hit some button on the keyboard and have not a clue where it has gone or if it will come back so will try again!
I realised I had not posted about the October block so here it is now. Could not decide what to do at first then hit on the idea of doing a bock around Halloween.
I do like my catbat in the left hand corner and the spiders web has worked quite well with a tatted spider that is a little on the large size for it. I feel it needs a bit more on it but not sure what so will leave it till all 12 are done then hopefully inspiration will come. The orange ribbon looked rather in my face but see on the photo it has calmed down a bit. Of course I could not resit a few bits of tatting, no crochet this time though. I also used Sharon`s stencil, these have been a great buy, have not used them to their full potential by any means, they are from Sharon she can be found under pintangle, sorry have not worked out how to add as a link, have had a few instructions but still not there yet!
I have signed up for CQJP 2014 but think I will not make all 12 blocks in advance like I did this year as I want to add more lace etc and maybe do the blocks in different colours and with more patches on them who knows i could change my mind half a dozen times between now and then
I have added a sizzix big shot machine to my collection of bits and pieces, it was an offer to good to refuse at hobbycraft, down to £50 for a few days, normally about £75, have also bought the hexagon and tumbler dies but not worked out how to use it yet, must take the bull by the horns and have a go!!
Will put the latest Tula blocks on tomorrow when they get uploaded to the web site.
