More finshes!

Lainey has a little lamb, he stitched up oh so sweet, now he hangs up on her wall, baa, baa, bleat , bleat...LOL!

This was a lovely little design to stitch. I can;t quite believe I have finished my March SAL ornie already. Can't wait to see what design Elaine chooses for April.

This was a RAK I sent to lovely Myra (Gr8dames place) I had read on her blog she was hoping to make a patriotic/summer ornie tree this year so I couldn't resist stitching this one for her. I don;t have very many patriotic designs but I found this cute one in an old Better Homes & Garden Christmas magazine. I also have to say after me moaning in my last post about mail being so slow to reach Canada well in 11 years off sending packages over-seas this one has to be a record for me. It was mailed on Tuesday and it arrived in Myra;s mailbox in the US on Saturday delivered in 4 days, amazing!

I also sent this RAK to dear Lois (Of needles pins & stitching things). The little pillow was a design by Annie Beez Folk Art. It;s stitched as a pinkeep on the chart but I wasn;t brave enough too tackle that. I love the pretty colours in this one and may have to stitch it for myself.
I;ve been stitching on my Easter exchange piece today and oh my fess up who was it that sent me that darn frog!!! I had to un-pick the same part three times. It;s nothing difficult either a child could stitch it, guess I;m just having a bad day or really so far it's a bad year right now but that;s another story.
I also want to say thank-you so much too everyone out there who actually takes the time to leave me a comment, I really do appreciate this. Welcome also to anyone who is new to reading my blog and is now following my ramblings. I do hope you come back for another visit. Hugs!

Your little lamb is so cute... as are all of your other finishes!

It baffles me how slow the Canadian mail service is... I feel like I could drive it up the coast from the states and get there quicker!

Colleen said...

Love Lainey's Little Sheep! He's so cute. All of your finishes are lovely. You have been one busy stitcher. Hey, the frog jumped over to my house now. Yikes, he landed on my Easter SAL. Thanks for sharing all your lovelies. Hugs to you.

Lesleyanne said...

Your stitching is gorgeous. Two very lucky receipents of your RAKs and your sheep is very cute. Congrats on completing your March ornie so early in the month.

I love your little lamb, he is so cute! And the "Merry" ornament is beautiful, too. I stitched it this year, too :) but it is still sitting in a drawer waiting to be finished off in some form.

I love the RAKs you have sent, for sure the receivers will treasure it, too. Your package was really fast. I have a negative record from last year: a package sent to the US on 2nd December arrived at the end of February, three months! Anyhow, it arrived.

Have a nice stitchy day!

Awesome stitching Lainey. And I love your sheep ornaments :)

Fiona said...

Your stitching looks great and your gifts will no doubt be well received too. Liking the Scottish influence. I was sure I had commented last week, but it must be in cyberspace somewhere.
