A finish or two
Here is my Homespun Elegance finish, it was such a nice one to stitch and I had been promising myself for ages I would do it. Its called Olde Shaker Poem, I stitched it using the recommended threads (I know thats surprising for me) and its on 28ct linen done 2/2. I finished it last Friday and I intend to make it into a proper sized cushion, which if I've time I will do over the weekend.
Now my absence has partly been due to my sprained thumb which is feeling much better now thankyou, I did it on the seatbelt in our car, it keeps sticking and won't go in properly into the catch and so it got stuck and I got mad and the orange button thingy popped back out again and hit the top of my thumb and I twisted it, so I'm blaming Mark as its his car and I've been moaning about it for ages LOL!!
I saw thatCarol has made a start on my RR, and she is doing the PS Birdhouse which I really wanted and it looks brilliant, I was ever so chuffed about it when I saw that she was doing it for me.
I have been stitching the mailart for an exchange I'm involved in, I was going to post a picture but I haven't quite finished it and I don't want to spoil the surprise in case Sandra visits my blog (tho' I don't think she does) and posting out date is for the end of the month. I have also been stitching on the last leg of the DT RR,
I was left with Winter Spot as Wanda had chosen the seasonal spots for her RR, it was a nice one to stitch and only used 4 colours it was also very quick to stitch, I hope she likes it and the charm I have added. Marie-Louise has told me she is stitching mine at the moment, I can't wait for it to come home.
Now what else are my plans, I want to stitch Sheepish Designs - Ewe Alone and I still want to do Brighneedles - Friendship so I can't decide which to do this month and anyway I will always change my mind, I'm doing the Stitching Smalls SAL this month of Bunnies in the Garden, I hope to start that tomorrow and get my first weeks target completed by Sunday and I also have my ornie to stitch in the next week as I'm doing a SAL with Romyfor ornaments.
