Edited 17/11/06 - to show a clearer picture.
I really apologise for the photo, I hate this time of year for photographing things, I think I need a daylight bulb in a lamp, then it wouldn't look all golden, I'll see whether the lighting is better at the weekend and take another pic.
Whilst I took 2 unscheduled days off this week due to the flu I decided to stitch myself something, so I chose LHN - Woodland Samplings which I received from Carol in my birthday gifts. It was a great stitch to do and so fast to stitch up too, I used all the recommended DMC and stitched it 1 over 2 on 32ct natural linen.
Patti asked me what a PIF is so hopefully this will explain (I pinched it from Carol - sorry)
The first five people to respond to this post (via the comments section) will get some form of "art" made by me. It will be a hand crafted item made from sewing, or of course stitching. I will try to make the item something special just for you. After you comment, please email me your snail mail address (susimac at btinternet dot com). I'm going with a personal deadline of 365 days. So, it will be a bit of a random surprise in the mail for you, but something you can look forward to. There is a catch, of course, the way this works is that if you sign up, you have to blog this as well and continue sharing.
So far I have 3 people who have joined my PIF. Any-one else want to play????
I went back to work on Wednesday, feeling a little better, tho the voice still hasn't returned fully I have a sort of squeaky croak, which makes the guys at work laugh anyway. This weekend I'm going to Carlisle to finish my Christmas shopping - I hope, and then we are out with friends on Saturday evening. I have started another 'me' project, and will reveal all, hopefully some time next week.
In the post the other day I received a lovely surprise package from Barbara inside was the most gorgeous handmade by Barbara primitiv sheep with a bright red bell fastened to his neck - he's really adorable and I will post a picture of the package when I can take better photo's in better lighting. Also she sent me some of the thread rings I had on my wish list and a wonderful pan holder which matches my kitchen perfectly (how did she know).
