Andrea was my recipient partner for the SBEBB pinkeep exchange. I gave it a lot of thought what I was going to stitch for her and decided as we are both UKers and its the time of year for daisy's to be popping up through the lawn and on grass verges I would stitch a design from De fil en Aguille magazine which I have had for quite a while now. I just loved the colours of this design and didn't change a thing, its stitched with DMC and I have done it on 28ct pearl evenweave. Its edged in some pretty braid I found in my stash and of course the obligatory pins. The fabric thats on the back of the pinkeep is what you can see in the background and its from Laura Ashley.
I didn't realise it was so long between my blog postings also I have been a bit slow answering comments and making comments on blogs - I do apologise for being so behind and I really do appreciate everyone that visits me and leaves me a comment. I have been so busy since we got back from holiday - I started a new job which is much more busier than the one before plus I have been stitching a lot, I have done some exchanges and so of course I can't show them (apart from this one) I'm still waiting for the ABC exchange I sent to arrive at its destination. I have 2 other exchanges to get done - I have stitched my SBEBB Garden exchange but not done the finishing and I have started on a couple more PIF's.
I've decided after these next 2 exchanges - apart from Angela's (a very dear friend of mine) of which on her exchange I have only the finishing to do, I'm not going to do any others until the back end of the year - I would like to do a few pieces for myself and I want to concentrate on my CA Wells pieces and get them finished - even though we haven't got our kits yet LOL!! ......... and as you saw in a previous post I have few for finishing! Plus I need to stitch Carols NRR and finish my Blackbird SAL with Eva (I am so far behind on that now)
I'm still waiting for my biscornu to arrive from where it coming from my poor partner is stitching me another in case it doesn't arrive - it seems to be taking a very long time - but I'm not giving up hope just yet :-))
On another note my dellightful niece has updated her blog you can find her in my sidebar under Amy, she has been busy sewing on the sewing machine and has made some very delightful things.
Plus also I have been buying stash - yes stash, me on a self imposed stash ban I've splurged and when the final things arrive I will show you what I have been getting - some very delightful treats I can tell you.
