Another quick post

Boy I do have a good baby that allows me a bit of time to stitch and post! Wanted to quickly show what I have stitched recently. It was both my sisters' birthdays recently so I decided to make them both a biscornu each to add to some other stuff I gave them. Here is one I made for Fiona which is actually one I started in hospital but didn't get very much done.

And then I felt I had to make one for Wendy, even though she might not be quite into it, I felt I couldn't leave her out. They are both made from threads and fabrics given to me by people recently. This one is from a Periphaeria chart from Outi and uses Atalie threads which she also gave me.

I also recieved this beautiful chart from Jeanne and some lovely baby stuff too. This was a chart on my wishlist which Jeanne had and offered to send me. Thank you so much Jeanne.

I am finding a little time to stitch and blog so I decided that I would sign up for the SBEBB Spring Quaker exchange. I didn't think I'd be able to participate in any exchanges so soon but Elijah is a really good baby and just wants to eat and sleep at the moment. Although I haven't been commenting on every single blog, I have been looking at them and getting inspired. I am amazed how much stitching some of you have done already. Some of you already have quite a list on your 2008 finishes! Thank you for all your wonderful comments on my blog. It is wonderful to know that there is even a single person who takes an interest in me!

Hope you all have a great stitching week. xx

Isn't it nice to have a good baby. Aaron is still wonderful but he has started rolling so you can't leave him for a minute.
