Sunday was my dear surrogate sister Lisa's birthday and the design I chose is very apt I think. I've actually had this freebie design for a while now and I saw it stitched up on Michelle's blog and Lisa had commented about it so I thought right I'm going to stitch that for her birthday! I did actually adapt it a little so I hope I won't get into trouble from the designer for doing so.
Started 4th January 2011
I have been beavering away on another birthday gift and I am going to, hopefully, get it made up today or tomorrow depending if I have any meetings to go to ( more about that later) or whether I can actually stay awake or not!
Last Thursday I had an enjoyable evening on BBD AotH Snow Garden, my SAL with Jane and Valerie. I haven't made up my mind as yet how I'm going to personalise this one. My DH is a Jan baby as was my Mum and paternal gran so it's difficult. I am loving this.
My two evenings on Shores went very well although after Friday evening and stitching nothing but fish I decided to move away from them and stitch the pole the bird is standing on then move back to the fish! Not bad for two evenings as I did stitch the black border too. Me thinks I could have a major HD this weekend!
Onto last night and my rather measly progress on SB Emmanuel's Song. I do hope Barb and Colleen had a better evening than I did but I didn't actually start stitching until 9pm ( very unusual for me) and I did wonder why I was bothering but after a very stressful day I needed to relax and put a few stitches in.
