I'm a Bad Girl!

Bad, bad Sally had a new start on Wednesday! Bad, bad Sally does not regret it one little bit! I had got a bee in my bonnet about starting HAED Tiny Treasures letter J which Jennifer very kindly RAK'd me with last weekend. Thankfully I had enough threads to start it and just the right sized piece of 25 count fabric ( these are charted for 18 count but I decided on 25 count) so I gridded for the first page and away I went. I was intent on just stitching a bit in an afternoon when I got the chance but the new start went to my head a bit and I ended up stitching on her every night except Friday so here's the result. I love this piece so far. It's just so nice to stitch, big blocks of colour and little confetti. On Friday the DMC arrived from my floss fairy, Kelly, so I now have plenty of thread to complete this piece.


The little PIF gift has arrived safely with it's new Mum over in Germany so I can now show a picture of it. June kindly sent me a couple of Just Nan complimentary charts a few weeks ago so I decided I'd repay her kindness so, as she loves snowmen, I stitched her this wee fella and I can't for the life of me find the link to it but it is a freebie fron Angelsan. The finishing didn't go exactly as I wanted but I am happy with it and June loves it:)


I'm getting a bit worried about the needleroll I stitched for the secret exchange on S&S. It's nearly two weeks since I posted it and, as far as I know, it hasn't been received yet. I am keeping my finger's crossed that it still reaches it's destination safely.


And speaking of exchanges I'm taking part in a private Autumn colours biscornu exchange with Hazel, Tracy and Hazel's friend:) We have lots of time too as send out isn't until late September/ early October.



Thank you for all your good wishes on my last post. I am beginning to think I will never be right again. I am stuck in the house at the moment because of "women's problems" as I am that heavy I daren't go out and it's getting me down. DH and the girls have gone to do the fortnightly shop armed with my list so finger's crossed they don't come back with a load of extras that they might fancy!! Lol! I am off for a session of my new DS game which I keep losing as my DH decided he wanted to play on it last night and Jess did the same on Friday for a bit after tea!



Have a good Sunday!


Hugs

Well a little treat never hurt anyone, and the letter J is looking good so I am sure it has done just what a treat should do and cheered you up.

Sweet fob too Sally.

Lovely new start - looking forward to seeing more.The fob is adorable - lucky June. :0)
You have my sympathy Sally: I "lose" 3 days out of every month due to the same problem. Got a leaflet for a new procedure you may be interested in that stops flooding problems - going to ask my GP about it. Will email details to you if you like.

Mylene said...

Scissor fobs is soooo cute.

Nice new start Sally. I love the snowman fob, went in search on angelsan's and couldn't find it :(
