A little peak at the covers for the wedding invites I've been busy making.  You can see they're all cut, scored, folded and have the very sticky double sided tape on them - just ready now for the lace, ribbons and bows!  Can't let you see the finished ones until they've been posted out! 

Now I was wondering if maybe someone could help me out - a few years ago I made this wall hanging from a kit - it's a really chunky long stitch and the sheep are made by latch hook (like rugs).  Anyhow, the same company also made an arch shaped one with poppies on it, but when I tried to buy it from the same supplier as the sheep one, it had been discontinued.  I think the company that made it was called Smyrna or something like that and I would really like to find out if I could still buy it somewhere, or even the pattern of the design as I could buy the rug canvas and use chunky wool or tapestry wool doubled.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

  4. those invites look fabulous, can't wait to see them finished. can't help with the tapestry I am afraid, that is one thing I never tried!

  5. You have more patience that I do - I tried batch making a dozen Christmas cards and lost the will to live before I finished!! Definitely couldn't cope with this many repeats lol!!
