A lovely envelope brightened a really dull, dreary and wet Saturday. Rachael sent me the mini mystery from TS, how cool we were partnered together. Thanks Rachael, i love the goodies you stitched for me and i have the coaster on the table next to my stitching chair, such a beautiful colour fabric and so beautifully stitched (sorry the photo does not do it justice, black skies are not helpful!)
The colouring book page at TS was posted earlier this week, and as soon as i saw it i knew what i would be doing with this one. The pincushion in my project box was looking very worn out and shabby. Behold, a nice new bright and cheerful addition, stitched on 28ct brittney in sky blue using DMC rayons to give a bit of sparkle to it. It's a perfect fit and already been put to good use LOL
Lots more stitching to be done this month, i've signed up for 2 needleroll exchanges (post out dates not until May), and i need to get the JA monthly challenge kitted up and stitched. This month the girls have chosen The Caron Keeper by Cynthia Zittel of The Drawn Thread, this was my choice so i'm a very happy bunny. I also signed up for the India Grace hardanger design too, thats all kitted up, i just need to get on with it, it's been sitting there for 2 weeks now.
A lady at the stitchy club brings me empty tins from her son (he smokes the Cafe Creme cigar things) and i now have quite a few, he has asked her what i am doing with them all, so this morning i have started a design to make one up to give her on Wednesday (if i get it finished) so she can show him. I've given a few tins away to stitchers but if any of the UK regular readers to my blog are struggling to get hold of a tin to have a go, let me know and i'll get one in the post to you.
Have a great weekend whatever your plans are
