It’s been a long time
since I wrote about Randje per week. Lots of progress on 3 different pages.
This is randje 83 in red and yellow.
It was the last border I stitched on
Randje 81, 82, 84, 45 and
88 in terra cotta and blue.
They were the last
borders on page 4.
Randje 38, 86, 87 and 89 in
brown are the first borders on page 5.
I stitch my borders in
the order they appear on the blog Randje per week, but added a few borders I
skipped in previous weeks. I didn’t want 2 bold borders next to each other, so I stitched randje
85 at the bottom of page 5.
This is my last update
for Randje per week for this year. Next year there will be a new Randje per
week SAL, so I just keep stitching pages with pretty borders.
I participated in 3
different Christmas ornament swap in the last months. The first swap was for a
cross stitched Santa ornament. The
pattern for my skating Santa came from an old pattern sheet without info. I
think it’s from the seventies.
I used DMC Jewell effects
for his skates.
Luckily there was a
matching fabric in my stash for the backside.
Barbara made this cute
sleeping Santa for me in a 3 inch hoop.
In the second swap it
didn’t matter what kind of material you used. I crocheted a star, designed by
Brenda Smits. The pattern came from the book
Aletta made these pretty
ornaments for me in papier mâché.
The last swap was fabric
related. I sewed a 5 inch stocking on my sewing machine for Marja.
And Marja made these cute
boots for me. Love the snow on them!
