Today is reveal day for the challenge at Stitch & Stash. This one was carried over from December as only 1 lady had managed to find time to stitch it in December. It's a complimentary design from Blue Ribbon Designs called Red Birds for Peace. A lovely design that gives you the chance to try over 1 stitching for the birds if you haven't before. An ornament finish seemed perfect for this design.
Happy Birthday Stephie ~ A small gift for a friend who comes to chat and drink tea with me. This free design seemed appropriate for her gift. I made a pocketed hanging ornament so i could add some various individual tea bags to it.
I think it's an old design from The Sampler Girl, but unfortunately it doesn't say on my print out. Could someone please tell me if not and i will amend it.
I still haven't put a stitch into my new project, in fact i haven't put a stitch into anything this week. Good guesses as to what it might be but no one guessed right. As the title here says, reveal, reveal, reveal and i have only revealed two things, i'll tell you what it is going to be (when i get started on it!) It's by Liz Turner Deihl and is called Irish Garden. Has anyone stitched one of her designs before? The chart was a gift a couple of years ago and DH bought me the fabric and specialist thread pack as a gift the following Christmas. It's come to the top of the 'to do' pile as he keeps asking about it and also i wanted to try different things this year.
Postie brought me a very thoughtful and lovely gift this week. Thank you so much Karan for the book and lovely handmade card, i hope you had a nice few days with DSis
I hope you've all had a lovely weekend, we woke to a sprinkling of snow but Mr Sunshine soon came out and its been a really nice day although very cold. February tomorrow, January seems to have flown by, although i must say it does seem a while since we were all saying Happy New Year, doesn't make sense though does it....
