Yet again I have so much to blog about and I'll probably not get it all on one post! So, I'll try to be brief.
First up, here is my Dad's progress on my "I am Half Sick of Shadows" piece:
He is steaming ahead with this and I am so so pleased as I was never going to get very far with it with so much other commitment stitching going on.
Lisa V got her Birthday Exchange from me from the SBBC. I stitched her the alphabet from the Thank You Mary Tobias booklet from Blackbird Designs. I used a Threadworx thread and stitched it on 40 count newcastle linen. I used two contrasting ribbons around the edge and made a bow thingy at the top. This was a little fiddly but I got there in the end.
And some of the extras I sent... I also sent some chocs and drinks but didnt picture these:
It was my birthday last week and I got my own birthday exchange through from the SBBC from Tracy N from New Zealand. She stitched me a sweet little biscornu. I seriously have to get a big basket for all these as they are starting to add up now. She sent me some lovely goodies too so if you're reading Tracy N, Thank you very much:
And my super bud Tracy D sent me this gorgeous parcel through the post. You know me too well dearie:
and a close up of the fold up:
I was so excited opening this parecel. I love everything in it. Thanks hun.
Just spent the last few days down in Wales and now having to do an awful lot of catch up.
Still not got round to photographing the crochet squares!
