Last night was SAL night with Lisa when we stitch on My Big Toe Designs A New Day and I have a finish!!!! This was such a joy to stitch and I have enjoyed every single stitch of it and absolutely love the finished piece. Thank you so much Lisa for SAL-ing with me. This design means so much to both of us which is one reason why we chose it.
My Big Toe Designs A New Day
36 count Flax linen
GAST, Carrie's Creations, WDW
Started 20th April 2011
Finished 20th July 2011
I'm not sure what I'll be starting next Wendesday. I may stitch on something I'm already stitching for a while:)
On Monday I stitched on Shepherd's Bush Family Sampler with Barb and Colleen. Barb has finished French Heart so I'm looking forward to seeing that but she has broadband issues at the moment. I'm hoping Colleen has made some progress on Checkered Sheep :)
Tuesday I stitched a little on Drawn Thread The Sanctuary another SAL but this time with Chris and Kajsa. I've had this in my stash for so long and can't understand why I've never started it before!
I'm happy to say I've finally had an invoice for my GAST for BBD Happy Birthday so hopefully I'll have them sometime next week :)
My Pifs have nearly all been received now and so far everyone likes them :) I was rather worried as they are not what I originally had planned but I messed up with the size of the fabric so had to change my way of finishing. I was so worried that no one would like them but I think that's the way I am at the moment! I won't show them here just yet as two have not been received yet.
Jess is now home for the summer. I have to admit that I despair at the amount of washing she brought home and I truly wonder just where I went wrong! It's a wonder she had anything left to wear there is that much and I have to get it washed, try to get it dry with the typical British weather and iron it all. I could honestly sit and cry and I've given her a good talking to. ETA She will be ironing it all!
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows pt 2 was utterly amazing! We all think it's the best one of them all and I loved it! It definitely brought out several different emotions and I will admit that I shed a few tears. I felt really flat when it ended as both my girls have grown up with the books and the it became a tradition for us to see each film as it came out then buy them later as they were released on DVD. Even though they are no longer children it sort of signifies the end of their childhood.
Well I had better dash. I am way behind on blogs and I must apologise but I will get caught up hopefully when I get back in later today.
Take care everyone.
Love & hugs
