I had a very lovely pick me up through the post day today as I received the gorgeous scissors I won in Susan's giveaway. My picture really does not do them justice as they are so pretty and lovely to use. Thank you so much Susan. I plan to stitch this in pinks to match the scissors to keep them safe. I bought it the other week after seeing it stitched up on Su's blog.
No finishes in this post but I am moving along quite nicely with my WIPs. I laughed at the comments on my last post about the mermaid being buried in the garden on Shores!! I told Abi and when she looked she said " Mum have you run over her with the car?!!!" lol. Anyway now she is safe and sound in the sea, no more looking like she's buried!!! This block is almost finished and, hopefully, will be when I pick it up next time!
Barb, Hazel, Lesleyanne, Tracy and I started our Sampler Girl At Home with Jane Austen SAL last week and here's my start. I am loving this and this design will be the start of my Jane Austen wall :) I chose to stitch mine on 36 count flax linen and I'm using mostly DMC with a couple of Crescent Colours.
My Sampler Garden Casket is going well. This is the casket end and one side with the next end just started ( birds legs!!) I really hope I can do this piece justice when it comes to the making up!
Finally look at the cute little dragon at the bottom of this piece! Lol! This is Dragon Dreams Lost Dragon Sampler. I have actually finished this piece since I took the photo but will get it made up before I show it again.
And I'm afraid I had another small new start but no piccie of that either. I started a Shepherd's Bush needleroll!!
I was supposed to be going through to meet Chris on Friday this week but I've had to cancel due to not feeling well and as it was Chris had to cancel too so we'll rearrange for another time. We were both looking forward to it too.
Hopefully I will be back with my finished up dragon piece soon and maybe even a needleroll! Who knows!! Lol!
Take care everyone!
