Well my stitching over one was quite an experience as the frog continued to stamp all over it but as you can see I got there in the end. It will be 25years tomorrow since I had my first date with my DH Ian so I decided to personalise this one with our initials and the date. I;m so glad I;m not sending this pillow to anyone I had such problems putting it together. I just can;t seem to fathom out the right way to do these tall pillows. Can someone please share a tutorial with pictures off how it;s done
I was so delighted recently when Heather http://heatherstitch.blogspot.com/ and Sarah http://craftymoo-sarah.blogspot.com/ answered my plea for someone to do a last minute Valentine exchange with me. The first two pictures are the exchange that I sent to Sarah.
This is a freebie design that I changed the recommended colours and added a few twists too. I meant to put a label on the finished pillow "please do not fondle" as I basically glued it to death to put together..lol. But as I told Sarah I was so happy with how it looked I was tempted to keep it too myself. I don;t have a picture of the rest of my package but it included Valentine fabric and ribbons, threads, chocolate hearts, heart frame, buttons and a glass heart cube. Sarah has a picture over on her blog if you would like to see.
Sarah must have realised I;m as mad about Cows as she is, isn;t my Moo Moo darling. I just had to show a picture of the reverse, I love the fabric and cute little buttons Sarah has used. So many wonderful goodies too, I have the perfect chart in mind for the that sweet ladybird pillow. Thank you so much Heather and Sarah you have both really spoiled me with two wonderful exchange packages.
Well they say it;s better late than never but I know she;s such a sweet friend that Maggie wouldn;t mind I was a bit late with her (December )Birthday present. She loves her pillow and the scissors are getting put to good use already. I love this little design and one day I am going to stitch it for myself. Maggie is a keen photographer and has started a blog of her photos, please pop over and say hi http://maggies365daysofphotos.blogspot.com
Now that this one has safely arrived I can show these Christmas goodies I sent to Corinna. Sadly she is not blogging anymore but she is such a sweet lady I;m so glad we still keep in touch.
Finally this is my progress on my SAL ornament for February. I don't know whats the cutest my stitching or Jamie on top...lol!
