I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Now that it is over I can concentrate on some more stitching finishes and focus on new projects I wish to do. ( There is always so many of them!) But first I want to show you what 2 lovely ladies from my craft forum gave me for my birthday. I have known Vicki and Barb for many years and we have met a couple of times.  First, I must introduce you to " Copperfield" the beautiful appliqued owl that Barb made for me.

Isn't he stunning! I looove him.   Also adding to my owl collection is this beautiful little glass owl that Vicki has given me. Here is a pic of him on my thimble rack alongside 2 other wee owls in their shells. He is a charmer!

I was also spoiled by my mum and dad who gave me these 2 lovely jugs, I love blue and white and I actually saw these when I was shopping with mum and she bought them and put them away. My menopause memory  kicked in  and I had forgotten all about them so it was still a surprise.  Ya gotta laugh!

Since then I have been merrily stitching and completed the 2nd Celtic Knot BOM. I am really loving doing these ( at the moment- I know they get progressivly more difficult). 

I have completed 3 more stitcheries for Cotton Country and I am about to start the last one. Woohooo!!!

As winter shall be upon us in a couple of months I bought a pattern for a scarf I rather like  and the yarn in a variegated prurple colour.

I think I have bombarded you with enough pictures for today. and I really need to go and stitch. Remember to take time to smell the roses and I send you Angel Blessings.


  1. Belated birthday wishes to you. You did receive some lovely gifts.
    As always your stitcheries are lovely and the wool and pattern make me feel cosy.

  2. Gorgeous stitcheries [as usual for you Ondrea:)], and some lovely birthday gifts! It is exciting to receive gifts in the post:)

  3. Glad to see Copperfield has found a loving home with you Ondrea, Love Vicki's glass owl I'm sure he and Copperfield will have lots to talk about. I also love the blue and white jugs your mum got you for your birthday, nothing beats the crispness of those two colours together :)
    You've been very busy with your stitching, I can't wait to see the blocks together :) Barb.

  4. Lots of lovely work, Ondrea, and what can I say about your pressies. Lucky you, the owl applique is gorgeous!

  5. Your birthday presents are lovely. as usual the stitcheries are amazing and the variegated yarn is a stunning color

  6. Copperfield is hoot hoot cute, but where, oh where did you get the owls in their egg shells? I've not seen any like that...jealous betcha I am lol
