We've had a family crisis here so i've not been about much recently and not a lot of stitching has been accomplished either, although today i spent a nice afternoon putting some stitches into my new start. It's still ongoing and causing a lot of stress for us all so if i am not around much and reading/commenting on blogs please accept my apologies.
New start for August was a gift from Karen for Christmas last year, something a little different. It's by Keslyn's Designs and called Grandma Pitty Poo. If you scroll down its on the left hand side on her site (cant get a clickable pic to load up).
I like quite a lot of these designs although this is the first one i have tried. Has anyone else stitched one of her designs before?
Beatrix has also had an airing too. With not doing anything on it in July i thought i had better not leave it till the last couple of days this month. Its been going with me to the stitching club each week and i've managed to add 3 motifs this month. I think there are only about 11 left to add till it's completed, so i should be on track for a finish this year which is what the NBPQ SAL blog was set up for.
A postcard dropped through my letterbox yesterday and was a lovely surprise, Clare is on holiday in Wales with her family and new dog. Talking of Clare, she's the organiser of the mail-art exchange i joined and post out is this weekend. As soon as it arrives with its new owner i can show you, i wonder who is sending to me? Another nice piece of mail my postie will enjoy delivering, i hope he has clean hands!!
Thanks for stopping by
