I can post a picture of this little rascal now that he has arrived safely in The Netherlands. I so enjoyed stitching him but as I mentioned in a previous post when I cut the fabric to finish him off I got a bit too excited with my scissors and cut close to the edge. I was nearly in tears as I thought I was going to have to bin him. Thankfully I was able to rescue him.
I had a great time making up this gift package for my dear friend Erna. As you can see it has a bit of a Scottish theme.
Erna has been to Scotland many times and is just mad about everything Scottish. Her stitching is just beautiful and she stitches the most stunning Samplers. She has recently mentioned to me that she is not very happy with her finishing skills so I couldn't resist putting a little challenge in her package. I reckoned if I have to suffer with my finishing woes then so does she..lol. Along with all the items needed to make up a pillow, I enclosed this little rhyme inside the tartan fabric.
Tartan Jimmy is my name
Making me a pillow
Is your aim
Make me square or make me round
Stuff my fabric, sew me down
Add my trim, stitch my heart
Glue us together, never to part
Oh so Bonny I will be
Thank you Erna for making me
Thankfully Erna gets my scottish humour and thought it funny and has told me that she will take up the challenge. I am also very excited as Erna is hoping to visit Scotland later this year. How amazing will it be that we will get to meet in person.
Thank you so much to everyone who left all those lovely comments on my daughter Heathers stitching and the birthday wishes for my Mum. They were both delighted when I told them about my post. I have asked Heather what will she be stitching next.. but as I thought she just looked at me and said Oh Mum I knew you were going to say that..lol.
I have been stitching quite a bit the past few days but I have no photos as my camera needs charged. I finished stitching my Spring SAL piece and I have been working on my Happy Moo Cow.
Hope everyone is having a good week-end. Hugs!
