Where My Heart Blooms

I decided to have a couple of evenings stitching on BBD Where My Heart Blooms this week but ended up not stitching on Friday at all as I wasn't feeling too well so stitched on it Saturday and Sunday evening instead and I am delighted with the progress I have made. The only things that I don't think show up well enough are the GAST Shaker White flower centres ( eyelet stitches) as my Shaker White isn't quite as white as I would have liked but I think I'll see how it goes.Yesterday I stitched all the beads on Just Nan Queen of the Needle and am hoping to finish the last bit of stitching and beading tonight! I have had so much fun with this piece and am looking forward to stitching another JN sometime soon.

Saturday was reveal day for the S&S/ JA SAL challenge, which was Blue Ribbon Designs Alphabet Tree. This design is a retired freebie but Belinda kindly let us use it. I had already stitched it once but was happy to stitch it again. I can't show it yet as it's on it's way further up north as one of my PIFs! As I said a while ago I decided that I would choose three people to receive a PIF from me as PIF sign-ups were very slow so that's my first one done:)

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and thank you for all your lovely comments and good wishes. I must just apologise to Sammy Jo as when she read my warning bit on my last post and not to read if you didn't want to hear about blood tests she thought it was bad news, but the reason I did it was so that anybody who didn't want to read about it and me moaning could skip it! So sorry about that Sammy Jo.

Have a wonderful week! Hopefully I'll have a happy dance by the end of this evening!

Hugs

Where my heart blooms looks lovely, I think the white is just white enough, personally.

Can't wait to see a happy dance for Queen of the Needle!
