Finally a picture of some sewing

and its no thanks to blogger it won't upload any pics for me tonight and No sorry AnneMarie its not Polly Wolly Doodle, although that is finished, my battery has died on the camera and so I can't take a picture of it.I did scan it, but as I never ironed it it looks all askew and so I'm not happy, but I will photograph it tomorrow when my battery has re-charged. This is the new PS freebie - Spring, my intention is to finish it as an ornie, I started an ornie a month SAL with Romy and Paula, Romy has finished hers and its up on her blog and its beautiful, I was going to stitch a heart thats fuull of spring flowers by Sabine Wachtel and hopefully I will get chance to do it before the month end, though as its quite large I will have to do it 1/1 on 36ct so it becomes ornie size, otherwise if I don't get chance it will have to be this one and anyway I digress as I was saying its PS - Spring which I actually finished the night before we went on holiday, I stitched it using the lovely Natural Dye Company fine silk thread which Barbara recommended, I managed to get some on ebay it was the rainbow pack and I tried to match up the DMC colours to the thread that was in the pack so of course they aren't the same colours and appear much brighter, I am pleased with the result though. 
I sent my neighbourhood RR off on Saturday to Carol, I won't get it back in my hands now for about 18months, whilst it does its journey around the world it will of course be well travelled more than I as it goes to the USA, Canada, Holland, Germany, its a lucky piece of fabric as it gets to meet everyone who taking part in our RR. Unfortunately one of our group has dropped out which is Novia, though I do understand why she has I think its a shame, but I hope that she keeps visiting our neighbourhood of Makebelieve blog and comments often. I received mums part before we went on holiday, its gorgeous and I have been busy deciding which square to stitch in, as Novia has dropped out, I asked mum if she wants me to do 2 squares which she said would be great and she will do 2 on mine when she eventually gets it. Posted by Picasa
