I’ve been loving doing the BEDM challenge; it has really thrown me out of my comfort zone, and got me writing a lot. But I’ve been neglecting the other parts of my blog, and as BEDM winds down, I’m getting back to the everyday business of Is That You Darling!
The order of business today is a 31 Before 31 update. This one has been a work in progress for a while, but I couldn’t share it with you because it was a birthday present for my friend Jen, who turned thirty last week while we were away. As I’m low on funds at the moment, I couldn’t splash out and buy her something fancy, so I decided to make her a cross-stitch from a free pattern that PixelPower provided. I love PixelPower’s designs, and Jen is a huge Lord of the Rings fan, so I thought she would like a Gandalf cross stitch.
And here is the finished product! My dad framed it for me, because I’m rubbish at things like that, and I am really pleased with it. I think Jen was too, I hope she’ll display it proudly!
