 Good morning everyone.

I thought firstly I would share my Remembrance Day poppy twiddle mitt.

This week I have pottered in my sewing room and made a  few Christmas cards.

Then, I had a text from Annie to ask which machine embroidery stitch I used to edge my cards. (We both have the same machine)

I replied with the row and the pattern number but she was still struggling as the numbers had faded on her chart. 

In the past I made myself a set of little fabric books with each pattern numbered so I can see how well they work.

As Annie didn't have this handy resource, I took a photo of my little chart and sent it to her. Now it's printed and stuck onto her machine so at least she can quickly access her pattern! Sisterly love.🥰

Just a quick post this week. I am still only working on half power as I still have a silly cough and it saps my energy. It is a bit better, so fingers crossed it goes soon.

Have a good week.

xx Jo

What a good sister you are coming up trumps with that chart - though it lookds mindboggling to me! Hope your cough goes soon, they can wear you down. Have a great week, love n hugs, Cindyxx #12

That’s such a good idea re the stitch sampler, the sort of thing that I should do but never get round to! I love the Remembrance twiddler, such lovely colours and you can’t go wrong with poppies. I’m really sorry to hear that the cough is still bothering you, it does seem to linger on with many people. More whiskey needed maybe? Looking forward to seeing you very soon, I’ll message you later about days/times etc.

Oh I do hope you feel better soon, a persistent cough is wearing and boring. Loving the sisterly cooperation, I can claim cooperation but not over sewing, our kid is resolutely against such a past time! Lovely cards as usual Twiggers, you really do have such an eye.

Oh my life I am gobsmacked at all those stitches how absolutely a-maz-zing! I only have a few on mine but still I might make a little booklet of them, what a great idea. Adore your remembrance twiddler the colours are so relaxing. and the Christmas fabric cards are super too, what a delightful post today. Hugs #13

Happy Belated WOYWW. Lovely Remembrance Day knitting. So useful having that stitch guide. I do miss having a sewing machine sometimes, but then remember how rubbish I am at finishing off projects. Ali x #16
