BACK TO LUCY, SWEET STITCHING AND A GIFT



 Oh my! My big 0 birthday seems to still be going. Today I received a beautiful thoughtful gift from my buddy Shez. Anyone would think she knows my favourite colour!  Shez has made me the most beautiful wool felt needle keeper and has enclosed a lovely purple Threadworx floss that I am eager to use along with the sweetest card. THANKYOU  so much Shez.

I decided I had best get back to my Lucy Boston EPP and made another filler block yesterday. Only 2 more of these to do and then I can start piecing it together.
 
 
 
 
I have almost finished the 2nd " Welcome" stitchery to make into a table runner. I would have finished the stitchery by now except I ran out of 2 threads .  These are from Jenny's free BOM. I love Jenny's designs and she is always so generous with freebies as well as having a lovely stitching club that features a set of designs each month to purchase. 
 
 
 
Sorry, haven't ironed them!
 
Thank you for visiting me again. It is always lovely to see you.
 
Angel Blessings.

A UFO COMPLETED


Yey! I have finally finished the table mat I was working on for myself. I am so glad I completed all the stitcheries after finding some already done in my UFO drawer.


 
 
Earlier this year I made a framed stitchery as a birthday gift for Barb. I couldn't show it to you as it was a surprise and I don't think I included it in my OPAM so I shall add it to this month's.
 
 
 
 
It is Good Friday and I have put a few little Easter things out on display. I tend to buy a little something each year. This year I bought the cutest little bunny in a cup and saucer and a bunny snow globe ( or egg!).
 
 
 
 
 
 
May you all have a lovely Easter. If you are travelling anywhere please take care and stay safe.
 
Angel Blessings.

STITCHING PROGRESS AND GIFTS



 On my mission to complete some UFOs I have come up against a couple of obstacles. With all my fabric stash why oh why can I not find a suitable choice for sashings? I either have the wrong shade of a colour or not enough in the colour I like. After much auditioning and musing with a stitching friend I have decided I need to go fabric shopping. Oh dear! How sad! LOL Looks like that particular UFO is temporarily on hold.  However, I did find a suitable fabric to back and bind my hexie table mat I am making from the Rosalie Q BOM stitcheries.


 
 
I have traced and selected threads  (as well as fabric that I did have in my stash...enough of it too!) to stitch this beautiful free design from Jenny. I am stitching the design twice to put at each end of a table runner. I am also planning thread and fabric colours to stitch Jenny's March stitchery club collection of designs which are beautiful. I shall probably have a pic of that soon. 
 
 
 
 
Last weekend was my big 0 birthday and I received a beautiful gift from dear Barb . The most gorgeous little stitchery and yummy choccie were wrapped in a lovely Leannette Anderson fabric. Thankyou so much Barb. I love my pressies.
 
 
 
 
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a pic of the framed stitchery I made for Barb's birthday. Hopefully Barb will send me a copy if I am really nice to her. 
 
Thanks again for stopping by.

STITCHING BUT NO OPAM


Oh dear! Although I have been stitching I haven't managed to complete any projects in March. I have nearly finished this little mini . Last year I was stitching the beautiful calendar designs from Jenny's stitchery club and I have made each one into individual minis.  I just need to put the binding and sleeve on this one.





                            I did complete the 5th hexie stitchery I am going to use in a tablemat.  


 
 
The final one is in my hoop.
 
 
 
 
I have been adding borders to my hexies.
 
 
 
 
Stitching is slow these days because I have been preoccupied with this little munchkin. ( He is nearly 6 weeks old now. This was taken at 4 weeks.)
 
 
 
 
 Thanks for visiting my blog.
