From Me to Carol

Photobucket

Carol , received her Valentine exchange from me and has let me know that she liked it very much. I wanted to stitch something for her that would have a take on the morbid verses that Carol has a fondness for, and I felt I accomplished that with this wee sweetie by EEF which I have finished as a small door knocker hanger. I have stitched it on hand-dyed fabric the colour is called Attic Treasures and its by Silkweaver, I love the aged look of this fabric and as I wanted the finish to look a bit old and worn it was the best choice. The thread colours are a mixture of DMC and GAST. I think I would like to do another like this.

Well I never picked my needles up yesterday, but I will today, I feel much better this morning, very breathless still, and slightly dizzy (whats new eh!), but I must admit I feel tons better than I did, I'm not rushing round doing much though and will sleep the afternoon away if my body tells me too - so don't worry mum, I'm not going to go into full spring clean mode - just yet!

Thankyou everyone for your good wishes - if I disappear for a couple of days its just I'm still not 100%, and will re-appear when I feel perkier

Oh Su,
It's gorgeous. I have 3 favourite little sampler sayings and this is one of them. I love the aged look that this fabric brings to this ornament; it's a very pretty little design.

I hope you feel a little stronger every day :>)

I am so sorry to hear you are not feeling well Su! Take care of yourself. Lots of tea and a warm quilt is my prescription. :) Your exchange gift to Carol is just beautiful. Great job! I covet those scissor with the heart shaped handles. Is it something Kelmscott will be bringing out at the market? I have to add them to my collection.
