Two of the birthday gifts i stitched, i can now share. Kathy (no blog) has recently tried quilting and i decided that a larger pincushion finish would be nice, lots of pins needed in quilting and a safe place for them to live.
Julianne, also celebrated her birthday at the weekend, and i made the smaller pillow for her. Design is by Elizabeth Designs and perfect for two stitchers whose work i love to see and admire.
Rachael also celebrated her birthday, but i will reveal my stitched gift for her next time i post, as i chose the challenge piece for this month as her gift knowing her love of that particular flower. Happy Birthday ladies i hope you all had a lovely day.
Another Christmas ornament to add to my collection. This months design is from Just Cross Stitch ornament edition for 2002. Shepherds Bush ornaments are something i have been wanting to stitch for a while, but somehow something else always gets done. This month i decided to put that right and make a start on them. I didn't have a sheep charm so stitched a second sheep instead.
Lots of stressful stuff going on here right now, what with DD and her ongoing building problems (which have still not started and so much trouble from the landlords that needn't be happening). She is living in such a mess and having to come here every day as she has no bathroom facilities apart from a small cloakroom toilet downstairs. My brother was rushed into hospital and has had 2 of his toes partially amputated after a gardening accident at the weekend - frightening stuff! An ongoing problem with DD's back has escalated and a lump has been found, so she's off for a scan beginning of next month to check that out. There are other issues too, but i think i've moaned enough and you didn't come here to read about the hiccups life is dealing us right now!!
I'm trying to get at least an hour of relaxation and stitching time, therapy time DH calls it each day and finally decided on the Just Nan design i want to do to continue the SAL that Tina is running at Stitch & Stash. Fabric and threads sorted out and i've put a few stitches into it, i'll take a pic and show you what i've chosen next time i'm here when there's more than just a couple of little x's
Thanks for stopping by, your visits are so much appreciated. It's nice to come and see a comment, it does brighten your day when life is making you feel somewhat grumpy and stressed out.
