The Drawn Thread Forget Me Not Keeper
Stitched with DMC
I also included a couple of the new DMC Satin threads for Kyrie to try. Not tried them myself but according to the lady in the local arts and crafts store they are lovely.
In a few weeks I will probably move onto my next round of PIFs:)
No other stitching to show as yet. I've finished the JA/ S&S SAL challenge for February which is Dragonfly Stitches Valentine Heart but I need to make it up into something ready for reveal day then I'll be able to show it! I really enjoyed stitching this lovely little design. I also started my first Prairie Schooler Christmas ornament and hope to finish that off later this afternoon. It would have been finished last night but I ran out of DMC 3362. Why is I have a lot of doubles but never the one I need??? I went to the local arts and crafts shop this morning and bought a skein so that I could finish it. I begrudge paying 60p a skein for it but if I need it I have no other choice.
I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day. As you know my DH had been away on a course and didn't get back until 8.45 Wednesday evening. When I gave him his card on Thursday morning he said I could have mine when he'd written it! Lol! As it was when he came to write it he realised that he'd bought one that said "To The Man In My Life" on the front of it!! Now should I have been offended or worried?!! Needless to say he went out and bought me another one!! The girls and I have not let him live it down yet! I am guessing he bought the first card in a bit of a hurry!
I'll be back in a few days with my update on Sea Stars and, hopefully, my PS Christmas ornament. No Queen of the Needle until Helen gets back and I'm going to miss stitching on it.
Have a wonderful week! It's beautiful here at the moment as we're having sharp frosts then gorgeous sunshine for the rest of the day!
