Sneaky Peak Revealed

It's time to reveal the sneaky peak I showed you! My longtime cyber friend, Louise, got married on Saturday and I wanted to stitch a little something for her and her husband to be. So I decided on Ewe and Eye and Friends Love Letters. I stitched it in the recommended DMC colours on 32 count white fabric and made it into a little pillow. As you can see I highlighted Louise and Ousmon's initials in the alphabet in a different colour. I have not heard whether they like it or not but knowing Louise I am sure she will:)

Gift for Louise and Ousmon.

The chart is now for sale ( or trade) if anyone is interested.

Now Lisa has been kicking my butt ( I am so bruised!!!!) to get Shores block 8 finished this last weekend and let me tell you I stitched for hours on this to get it done! Saturday evening I stayed up until 11.30 in the hope I'd finish it but no it was not to be. So yesterday afternoon I did! Wahoooo!!! I can't believe this block took me so long but it's done now and I can have a fresh start for October on block 9:) I know that me kicking Lisa's butt has done some good too as she's finished her L*K Christmas ABCs this weekend and is hoping to get a photo up on her blog later so do pop along and have a look see if it's there!

Finally I did a bit on Blackbird Designs Their Song last night. I did have some frogging to do as I stitched a flower in the wrong place ( oopppsss!) but it's looking good! Lol!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my Spring Morning finish. Wow such a lot of comments! I LOVE receiving and reading comments so they are always very welcome. My bell pull ends arrived on Saturday ( I cheat and will use one and save the bottom one for the Autumn design when I get it stitched!) so sometime this week I'll get that sorted and hung and will take a piccie for Ellen of it hung with the others.

Don't forget that I'm offering up a PIF on my previous post so please do join in if you'd like to receive something stitched by me. I have just placed a small order with Anita, seen as I had some funds,  for some things I would to like stitch for people. Thank you Michelle, Elisa, Jane and Carolyn for signing up.

I am behind on blogs again so will do my best to catch up tomorrow and Wednesday. I have to wait in on Wednesday as I have an engineer coming to look at our boiler as it's on the blink! Twice this last week we've had no hot water. We had the same problem around December last year and an engineer came and fixed it. It's a good job we have it insured!!!!

Take care everyone.

Hugs

Sally

A beautiful wedding gift. I am sure they will be thrilled with it. Well done for finishing block 8. The stitching on your WIPs is gorgeous. Lucky receipents for those who entered your PIF. I would have loved to but I am so not any good at finishing and would be so embarressed to offer anything of mine up lol.

What a lovely wedding gift for your friend. I'm attending a friend's wedding in Nottingham at the weekend and I've stitched them Bent Creek's Wedding Row. I'm so nervous in case they don't like it!
Glad to hear you're getting your boiler fixed, better to do it now rather than in the dead of winter! I've had our heating on for the last few days, it's blinking freezing here!

jane said...

The wedding pillow you made for Louise is just lovely. I am sure that they will treasure it.

Congratulations on finishing Block 8, it looks to be a huge amount of stitching.

Christine said...

The pillow is lovely, I'm sure they were delighted with it.
Well done on finishing block 8!
Our boiler is broken too, we've been waiting weeks now for the tiny, insignificant part it needs to fix it. Apparently its obsolete, grrr, I hate the throw away attitude of these manufacturers.

Siobhan said...

Great job on the WIPs, Sally! Your gift for Louise is lovely--I'm sure she'll treasure it!

Kajsa said...

Wow, what a pretty gift! Shores and Their song looks great, block 8looks pretty solid to me, no wonder it took some time.

Carol said...

Your finishes are just lovely, Sally--I'm sure the bride and groom will really appreciate such a special gift. And Shores gets prettier with each block--just love it :) I know how long those blocks take--am really struggling with my CatHRH block this month!

Berit said...

Love Letters is gorgeous--certainly they must adore it! :)

Julie said...
