I would like to wish everyone a much belated but heartfelt Happy Easter, I hope that you all had a great break. I know we did, we were busy with the garden Marks nephews came and gave us a hand to pull out a rather gigantic cordyline tree, it was supposed to be dwarf but it kept growing and growing til it has become rather too large for our small garden and so it had to come out, and then the 'boys' built a new water feature which I am so pleased with, I will take photos of when its settled down and my plants have settled around it. Snce then we have settled down to a 'flu' infested household again, I went back to wotk Tuesday to come home again 3hrs later and feeling like I am dying, Mark started last night, so I am at the very hot and yukky stage now and feeling very sorry for myself, so Tuesday and yesterday was spent sleeping.
Sewing wise I have completed the next stage of the 'Bunnies' SAL I knew I would have to change something, I just knew I would, its the bird I didn't feel the blue for the main part was different enough and so I have stitched mine in Blueberry Grunt by OWS, hope Ellen doesn't mind my colour change and I am now looking forward to the next part.
Next I made myself a wee pinkeep - this was my quick Easter project, The design is stitched on 32ct hand-dyed fabric from Sugar Maple it was one of their one of colours, the design is called 'Bunny Hop' by Gentle Arts Sampler Threads and I used Heavenly Hues threads and added the charm, the back of the pinkeep is an alphabet taken off a chart by Isabelle Vautier, it was exactly the perfect size to fit and again its stitched with Heavenly Hues thread. The ribbon I used to edge is a silk ribbon by Polstitches, there wasn't enough really o do what I wanted so I had to gather it instead, I thought it looked OK. Other progress?? Well I have done a wee bit of tidying up with my stash but haven't the inclination or energy to much more and I have also started on mums Neighbourhood RR, my first house choice was too small and so have picked another and have started to sew it now, Woodland Walk has had no progress for a fortnight and hopefully this weekend will see me back on track.
I have done a wee bit of blog surfing but not a lot so apologies if I haven't visited, I do appreciate everyone visiting mine and I welcome all comments its nice to be in such a friendly virtual community.
