A Teeny Finish

I can now show the teeny finish I had last week as it has been received. I wanted to stitch a little something up for Lindsay to show my appreciation of her lending me the BBD chart and as Spring is, hopefully, coming and it'll soon be Easter I chose this little fellow:) He was lovely to stitch and so cute!

The Prairie Schooler Peep ( card freebie)

Unknown ornament cut


Started 26th February 2011

Finished 1st March 2011

Thank you gift for Lindsay

As there were only two takers for the BBD A Wish for You chart that Becky sent me but I already have it I have decided to pass it on to Lesleyanne, as she commented first, then if she would please pass it on to Hazel when she's stitched it :)

I had a good couple of evenings on BBD Valentine Rose. I didn't get it finished but next time I stitch it I will!!! I love the heart shaped flower and the pot it's in. It looks so pretty.

Thursday I made a start on The Primitive Needle freebie By the Light of the Moon for the Spooky SAL in tribute to Lisa Roswell. I won this piece of fabby from Lee a while ago and decided it would be perfect for this design.

Finally I have actually remembered to take a picture of my little bit of progress on Blue Ribbon Designs Stitched With Love. I'm going to have to stitch on this more often as I only have about 6 weeks to get it done and into the framers. HELP! I'd better move this into my rotation rather than just stitch on it here and there!

Took Abi to the doctors on Friday. She was supposed to have a mock exam but ended up not being able to do it as she had stomach problems. DH and I started to think that she may have IBS and sure enough that is what the doctor thinks. She's given her some peppermint capsules so we will see how she goes with those. We have had so much going on and what with the stress ot it being her final year at school and exams coming up there's no wonder she's feeling the way she is. Bless her.

I've updated my for my sale list. Have reduced prices and also if you're interested in my finished Christmas Mystery IV piece please make me a reasonable offer! lol!

Just a quick post today. I plan on a stitchy afternoon if I can get away with it! Thank you for your comments- I truly appreciate each and every one of them.

Love & hugs

I can sympathise with Abi on the IBS, it's awful and you feel so worn out after a bout of it.

I keep imodium in business, it's in every bag and jacket pocket I have.

I love your little chick gift for Lindsay and all your other WIP's are looking fantastic.

Lesleyanne said...

Lovely gift for Lindsay. I look forward to stitching the BBD A Wish for You and then passing it on to Hazel. Lovely progress on your WIPS. The Valentine Rose is one of my favourites and yours looks gorgeous.

Brigitte said...

What a sweet little gift for Lindsay. And all your stitching is just wonderful. Valentine Rose has so many beautiful details, but which BBD chart doesn't have them? Very lovely.
Poor Abi. Hopefully she'll be feeling better very soon.

Susan said...

First of all, {{{hugs}}} to Abi, and to you {{{Sally}}} – you’ve got so much on your plate right now, no wonder you are stressed!

I love the little PS freebie you stitched – very cute!

The BBD house is lovely – love the pinks.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Peep is adorable! The fabric for By the Light of the Moon, is perfect! Can't wait to see your finished project! All your stitching, WIP & finished are beautiful.
Hoping Abi gets feeling better soon. She has a lot going on, final year & exams, ooh, that can do it. Hugs to you, my dear.

jane said...

Lovely gift for Lesley and Valentine Rose is coming along beautifully. I hadn't realised that you had stitched so much, must get a move on!
Poor Abi, I know that IBS is very unpleasant, I hope that the GP can help her to control it.

I love your little PS for Lindsay! I have that little card but didn't realize how sweet is was till I saw yours finished. Also love Valentine Rose. It's beautiful! Hoping things get better for you. It hurts to hear you say you don't know how much more you can take. I just hope you do find comfort in your beautiful stitching, bless your sweet heart!

valerie said...

Your Peep finish is so cute! And great progress on Valentine Rose.

Hope Abi is feeling better. I have IBS-C which is a different kind of frustrating. Stress definitely makes mine act up.

I love Blue Ribbon Designs Stitched With Love. :-)

Does Abi get stomach cramps with her IBS? If so, I can recommend Buscopan. It's also good for menstrual cramps. x

Hazel said...

What a sweet chick. Hope those tabs help Abi - it is horrible that. Thanks for the BBD chart. I look forward to getting it off Lesleyanne. Feel free to forward her my address but no rush!!x

Kate said...

Peep is wonderful Sally. Love Valentine Rose too.
Hope Abi gets some relief soon.

Michelle said...

Peep is so cute - I stitched this last year so its in my finishing box! Lovely gift for Lindsay. Give Abi my love - bless her.
I have ordered Stitched with Love by BRD going to pick it up at the stitching show at the NEC at the end of the month - can't wait xx

Ellen said...

Lindsay's gift is so sweet! Valentine Rose looks great, can't wait to see it finished.

Hope Abi is feeling better now.


Dani - tkdchick said...

What a lovely little thank you gift. As usual Sally your WIPs look great.

Lucy said...

The Peep is adorable...cute finish too!

Lois said...

What a sweet little gift! Love all your WIP's. Valentine Rose is looking so beautiful.

TeresaB said...

Adore your tiny finish! 'Tis the time of year for peeps and yours is adorable. You're ahead of me on the Valentine Rose block, but I'm hoping to catch up with some stitching time. Yours looks fab.

Hopefully the meds will help Abi and her IBS. Oh and I worried my parents by changing degree programs and colleges in mid stream oh so many years ago. I think it's worked out fairly well, so hopefully everything will work out well for Jess.

Christina said...

Your little chick ornie is so sweet Sally! I don't think I'll get any Easter ornies stitched this year, the year just seems to be running away from me! I think I'd better start on Halloween projects soon - that way they might be finished in time!

Mylene said...

Such a very cute finish! Beautiful progress on your WIP's.
Hope Abi feels better very soon.

Siobhan said...

Lovely gift for Lesley! Your WIPs look great, Sally.

I hope that Abi does better now that she has the diagnosis. My SIL and her sister both have IBS and my daughters and I suffer from nervous stomachs, so I can relate. :P

Hope you're doing well. xo

Lisa said...

Your Peep finish is so cute, I bet Lindsay loves it.
More lovely progress on your wips, I like your new spooky start.

Suzanne said...

What a cute gift for Lindsay! I love your progress on your stitching and your new starts.

I hope Abi is feeling better. IBS is awful and can leave you feeling very flat.

Julie said...

Cute little peep!

IBS is not nice, i know a couple of young ladies who suffer with it due to stress, i hope Abi's soon settles down
