Wishes Granted No 2

Photobucket



Phew......... I had a real panic on, I sent this last Thursday to Chris and it wasn't really going that far in the UK to where I am, but it didn't arrive until today. Chris made her wish on the Make a wish board, and this is what the wish fairy came up with.
The design is 'Tender Heart' by Shepherds Bush I just missed the writing off, and I also changed the colours of the outer border to match the fabric I wanted to line it with.

This is the second wish I have managed to grant, the first was the LHN tin topper to Susan, there are two more out there, being whisked to their destinations as I type, they too were sent last Thursday but have a bit further to go. I have had a lot of fun stitching different ones and I hope that I will get chance to do a few more.

Nancy asked me what the beaded background was on one of the pictures of Barbaras exchange, its a bag, and a very pretty one too, that I got for my birthday off my friend Karen last year it just shouted to me that it wanted to get in on the photos and was a perfect backdrop I felt for the lovely ornie.

I have also been asked what camera I use - well its a Sony Cybershot 8.1 and I love it.
We had a great weekend, we were at a BBQ on Saturday with the Golf Society and it was a lot of fun, this weekend I'm off to Penrith for the night, another golf do, but this involves some shopping through the day - yippeee!
Hope that everyone is having a good start to the week and are fine and perky. I've made a new start on something LHN Garden Pleasures, can't quite decide what I will do with it when its finished hmmmmm!

Thankyou for the lovely comments and visits that you have been doing to my blog I really appreciate it.Photobucket

What a lovely scissor keep, Su! I simply adore the design you chose.

Sounds like you won´t be having much stitching time, though!

Su,
This is such a pretty little gift. I love the soft whispery colours they are so atmospheric. The pretty fabric lining the scissor case is really delicate. I'm sure Chris must be delighted you waved your magic wand in her direction.
Hugs, Angela

Oh, what a beautiful scissor keep! THIS is what I was trying to achieve with my little mess, but it just doesn't look a thing like yours....phooey. And I'm glad to hear that you are stitching "Garden Pleasures". I started it over the weekend and will anxiously watch for your progress!

Su – your scissor keep is adorable – the fabric you used to line it is lovely, too.

Your “wish” is winging its way to the UK as we speak. I missed the deadline by a day (sorry about that!). I hope you’ll have it by the beginning of next week.
