Hello all. I have not had chance to blog for ages due to Elijah starting to be a bit more demanding in the evenings. I received this lovely lottery piece from Barbara last week but haven't managed to get the time to put it on my blog. I don't know about anyone else but it takes me ages to take pictures (and they're never very good) and then download them onto a host to put on my blog. It always seems to take a long time. So sorry it's so late being put on here Barbara and that the picture's not very good:( This beautiful hanging ornie was made by Barbara for Elijah's room. It's so beautiful and I love it. You can't see the top but it has two little heart buttons attaching the ribbon. She also sent these cute little mittens which Elijah has already worn!
Because of all the lovely, amazing gifts I have recently received from the lottery, I have decided to give away my little needlebook that I made for the lottery. I really like this piece but I feel to give it away since I have been the recipient of soo much stuff.
You can click on the picture to see more pics of it, back, inside etc... The design is from Repertoire des Frises and uses DMC Variegated threads. There are felt pages inside to place your needles. The first needlebook I made was the one with the little house on and I use it all the time. A very practical piece of stitching equipment! So if anyone would like it then just reply to this post and say so. I will do a draw in two weeks time or thereabouts.
I have been agonising over the Periphaeria spanish sal. I dunno what colours to choose. I would like to be creative and pick colours myself but without seeing the design I don't know if the colours I'd pick would be right. Does anyone else have this lack of creativity problem going on??
I am desperate to start something new in my stash but I have been hard pressed to get time to even finish my spring quaker exchange piece. It's a good job I started it early. I have nearly managed to get it done but Elijah has started to be a little more demanding now. I long to start my Collaberation sampler of A Most Noble Pursuit. I have all the silks and fabric for it so it's ready to go. Maybe sometime soon.
Well hope you all have a good stitching weekend and don't forget to put your name down for the giveaway. It's open to anyone.
