Yesterday was my lovely friend Michelle's birthday and having noticed her love of bluebirds :) I stitched her this:)
Blackbird Designs So Fade My Hours
32 count evenweave ( can't remember the colour off hand!)
Started 29th March 2012
Finished 12th April 2012
Birthday gift for Michelle.
This was a joy to stitch and I just love how it turned out. It makes me happy to know that Michelle loved it too:) Happy Birthday my dear friend xxx
I've stitched a little more on BOAF Love but, boy, has this little thing been causing me some problems! I got mixed up with two symbols and stitched the wrong colour so frogged that then I realised I'd made a mistake on the man so he's higher up than he should be. He is staying that way!!!!
Finally I treated myself to an evenweave grab bag from Polstitches the other day and it arrived today. This is what I got in it and I love them.
I also treated myself to the Joan Elliott book Bewitching after seeing some lovely WIPs and finishes on the Polstitches Facebook group. It arrived today and it's fantastic. Yes I know I'm supposed to be stitching from my stash but I am still doing that! Lol!
Thank you for all your wonderful comments on my finishes the other day :) 6 Fat Men will going to the framers and I think I'll make The Journey into a pin cushion or something.
Apologies to anyone who has been unable to access my blog due to content from Shabbyblogs. Shirlee alerted me but I couldn't understand it as my blog background was not from there but I had two buttons in my sidebar so have now removed those. Thank you for the heads-up Shirlee:)
Well I'd better get myself off here and vacuum upstairs. I need to get caught up on blogs too but will do that tomorrow :)
With much love.
