At last I have made the effort and finally made Blue Ribbon Designs Peppermint Twist up into a pinkeep. It's all I seem to make things up into these day ( and needlerolls!) but one day I will surprise you all and try something else! Anyway I backed the pinkeep in some red fabric that was in a fat quarter Christmas fabric bundle from The Viking Loom, which I bought ages ago, and used some green trim from the pack Mylene sent me then added red pins. I am pleased with the way it turned out. I intend on keeping it out all year long:)
CHS Shores of Hawk Run Hollow is going very well! Lol! I am loving block 5 and hope to get a real good go at it again tomorrow and Saturday. Fingers crossed I can get this one done for the end of the month then it'll be onto huge one in the middle, which I am not really looking forward to!!
I am also hoping to get The Sampler Girl At Home With Jane Austen finished by the end of the month :) I am still loving this piece so much and have actually stitched a little bit more on this tonight. It's such a pretty piece with a lovely sentiment.
My final WIP is Just a Thought Sampler Garden Casket. I am working on the casket top at the moment. Aren't those bunnies cute? lol!
I have had a small new start. Lisa and I were talking ages ago about having a go at a mattress pinkeep and doing it together but I've never got around to stitching something suitable until now! I decided on Drawn Thread Spot of Spring so that was my new start. It's such a lovely little piece and I intend on stitching the other three and making them into mattress pinkeeps too.
At long last I received my Shepherd's Bush kits from Fobbles today. As you may remember I ordered them back in mid February but they were out of stock so had to be ordered from SB. it's been a long time coming due to a lost package, then the Icelandic volcano halting flights etc but it's here at last :) I don't have a piccie of my goodies but I ordered My Pins and the 2009 Scissor Fob but as that was no longer available I got the 2010 one instead :) Beverley also included a Fobbles pen and a cute little button tin. That'll be my last stash for a while as with the price of everything going up I will have to good unless I desperately need fabby or threads. It's not as though I have nothing to stitch though as I have plenty to keep me going for a long time! Lol!
I'll be having a wee giveaway soon so keep a look out. I've stitched something up especially:)
At long last the weather here is warming up :) Just as long as it doesn't too hot!!!!
Take care everyone!
