While I remember I really must show Chatelaine Christmas Mystery IV part 11! I have started part 12 but have only stitched so much of one angel's wings. Yes we have two angel heads to stitch this time with over one faces! HELP! It's a long time since I stitched over one on 32 count fabby so it may prove interesting! I'm not sure when I'll get it finish but I think it's certain that it won't be on display this Christmas. I don't see how I can get it finished and made up for Christmas!
I sent Karen's PIF gift out to her last Friday and she received it yesterday so I can now show it:) This is the Assissi Pincushion from the June issue of The Gift Stitching. I know that Karen likes pink so I stitched it with DMC 68 I think it was. I hope you like it Karen:)
My last piccie today is of the ornament I stitched for some family friends. I chose Charlotte's Web Needlework For My Friends from the 2006 JCS ornament issue. The couple it is for have been friends of DH's family for many many years. Margaret was his Mum's best friend and it hit her very hard when she died. We have kept up giving them a small present at Christmas for all his Dad does not bother with them and their family much anymore and I thought this little ornament was quite apt.
The ornament I stitched and sent to Kerri in Simone's ornament exchange has reached it's destination safely and I'm happy to report that she loved it:) If you'd like to see a better piccie of it as well as the back of it head on over to Xmas Ornament Exchange 2007 where I have posted it:) Still excitedly waiting to see what the ornament I have been sent is like and who has made it for me:)
A few of you asked what I was going to order from Needlecraft Corner using my birthday discount. Well the answer now is nothing:( I was going to get Just Nan Christmas Wallet chart with embellishments, fabric and Pamela's Finishing Touches finishing kit BUT Drema no longer stocks older JN charts so doesn't have it nor does she have the finishing kit. As you can imagine I was very disappointed but I have ordered the chart and embellishments from Sew and So with some threads I needed ( then I forgot I needed more perle for QOTN and white DMC!) so at least I will have those. I have no idea where to get the Graziano fabby from so will more than likely end up stitching it on plain fabby but I'm not that bothered really.
I hope everyone is having a good week and not getting too strssed doing Christmas shopping etc. I'm feeling much more in the Christmas spirit now especially now we have all the decorations up:)
