Meet Uncle Willy

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:55 pm by knotsincotton

This morning my new stitchy chair was delivered. Hallelujah! smilestarshappy.gif The chairs we have in the livingroom are those weird, modern, newfangled and (supposed to be) ergonomic ones which are a pain to get comfortable in for a good stitching session.  Anyway, last week I put my foot down and bought a nice (good old fashioned) comfy armchair to sit and stitch in. When we originally bought the livingroom furniture, the only furniture the Good Husband insisted on were the chairs, so there was no way I was going to say ‘no’. I think seven years of sitting on the chairs quietly (and sometimes not so quietly) cursing under my breath earned me a comfy chair! Of course, when I bought the new chair the Good Husband grabbed the opportunity to buy himself a comfy Laz-E-Boy type recliner/armchair… 😉

Remember that I fell in love with a SaBF design called Uncle Willy a while ago? Well, here he is! He was such a fun stitch that I think I must get the others in the Snowkin series as well. Uncle Willy is stitched on blue hand-dyed opalescent fabby which thanks to the bad light, you most probably won’t be able to see.

At the moment I am in two minds stitching wise: should I start another stitchy project or  should I rather take the time left of the year to get some of the finished pieces made up, framed, etc. (After all, next Friday we are leaving for the UK to celebrate Christmas with the family so there’s only a week left.) What started the dilemma is the fact that I couldn’t decide whether I should start on BC Snow, BaBF Buddies or SaBF Pals… See, it’s a small step from indecisiveness to a major dilemma! 😕

As I type this my mum is on the plane heading for the UK. Only another week and I can see my mum! :mrgreen:

Thanks for stopping by, and your comments are much appreciated!

    Uncle Willy looks fantastic June! He’s so cute!

    Have you made up your mind whether you’re finishing some stuff off or starting a new project? Lol!

    Adorable little snowman! Love the sparkly fabric. And are you going to show us pictures of your chair? Gotta love a great chair!

    He is so cute, and he looks great on that fabric, the sparkles and variations show up fine on my screen. Your LK ornament turned out wonderful too, what a fun new ornament to hang up.

    Congrats on your new chair. One of these days I’d like to get one of those too, and I’ll bet my fur babies would love it as well. 🙂

    I love your blog. Your snowmen are adorable. You stitch from my heart, but as much as I love snowmen, I don’t stitch them that often.

    All your stitching looks so great!

    I’m looking forward to doing the Bride’s Tree SAL as well. I think it will be a fun adventure for all of us. 🙂
