Well here we are nearly mid March already. I wish I could say I was bouncing with the joys of spring but I;m still not very well, constantly wearing my crabby pants and my heads still rotating with all the stress and problems taking care of my MIL. The one good point though is my stitching helps me to forgot about it all. First let me share this little Birthday treat I made for the lovely Lesleyanne She has a fondness for coffee and Lizzie Kate so I thought this would be the perfect design. I really enjoyed the stitching but making up the pillow gave me a few lets say colourful moments..lol. Thankfully Lesleyanne couldn;t find my flaws and she was delighted with her gifts.
As I was laid up in bed most of last week I didn't get as much done on my new "Out on a Limb" chart as I would have liked. I am enjoying this one and will pick it back up later in the month.
I promised myself I would tackle some of my wips this month so the last few days I;ve been working on Happy Moood by Barbara Ana Designs. I started this on the 6th of April 2010. Why I put it aside I don;t know. It;s stitching up really quick and all being well it should be finished by tomorrow. Once again my awful photograph doesn;t show up the pretty thread colours and pale lemon fabric I;m using.
Look at these pretty packages my postman brought me last week. They were a delight that truly brightened up this old crabby pants day, a wonderful suprise from my dear friend June
I;ve got lots of uses for those pretty ribbons and buttons but oh my isn;t my stitching notebook just gorgeous!!! As I told June I have a fetish for pretty notebooks so I absolutely love it. How cute are the little scissors and the ribbon mouse tab. June;s talents are just no end, thank you so much my dear.
Now as if that wasn;t enough a few days later my postman brought me this little gem from another special sweet friend. Dear Michelle had made this beautiful RAK for me. I just loved it when I saw it on her blog and was going to email her to ask if I could borrow the chart. I had a little bubble (its my age..lol) when I opened up the package and saw Michelle had sent it to me, she is such a sweet friend with the biggest heart.
I;ve just been asked by a family friend to stitch a Wedding piece for another member of their family. I would love to have some chart suggestions. I only have one or two charts that I could use but there both a bit old fashioned for a young couple, help!
Hugs and happy stitching until next time!
