PIF FOR Ruth & An RAK FROM Barb

At long last I can show what I stitched for Ruth for her PIF. I was getting worried as I posted it three weeks ago but she had been off work sick so only actually got it Monday when she went back. I have to say I was not very happy with my finishing on this piece but Ruth assures me that she loves it so I am happy:)

Stitched for Ruth ( PIF)

I am a very lucky girl today as I received the most gorgeous RAK from Barb ( no blog). Barb makes the most beautiful beaded fobs and she sent me one along with a gorgeous pair of scissors, some ribbon and a Caron Wildflowers thread. Thank you so much Barb {{{{hugs}}}} I feel honoured to own one of your fobs and I will treasure it along with the scissors. ( I love scissors and a girl can never have too many).

The only other stitching I can show today is my progress on HAED QS Girly Gothic. Again I chose to stitch on her two evenings this week so that I could make even more progress:) I am now almost halfway through page 2 so if I am lucky I will have her finished well before I had hoped to; finger's crossed! Of course there is a fair bit of confetti stitching on this bit so it may take me a bit longer plus some metallic stitches and metallic and I are not the best of friends anymore!

That's it for now! Have a great weekend everyone and stay safe in the high winds we're having here in the UK.

Hugs

You did a great job on your stitching for Ruth!

Great progress on your HAED too. It is a wonderful design and I started to get addicted to my HAED. It is so much fun to stitch on it.

What a nice PIF you made !!! The gift you got is really gorgous and the scissors are so nice I feel very jealous of you !!! lol

Nice progress on your HAED. For the metallic thread you have to have a good brand. I know the DMC brand is really bad.

Have a good week end ;-)
