New patterns and update
I got this beautiful exchange from Mare in my ILCSing group. She knew I love cats. She stitches a covered round tin and inside she put two of her homemade rose pins. They are gorgeous. She sent a small stocking which she stitched another cat on it, plus she send a small catnip toy and a colorful band. Everything is wonderful. Thank you so much Mare. I love the tin!
I finished my January ornament on January 29. Than my batteries in my camera died, so I couldnt take the pic or download. When I went out to the store this past Friday, I forgot to get the batteries. My brother picked some up for me. The ornament is Jingle Bells, a freebie from the Hershenerr Needleworkshop site. It was stitched on Sassy Fabbys Snowflake. I trimmed with a gold cord. That was the hardest part.
After I got the ornament done, I started on EMS Froggy baby on a light blue aida. I was going to make it into a baby sampler for Mason, but I didnt make the deadline. His christening was today. I did buy a bond for him and I will give the sampler when I am done. The picture above is what I done so far.
I got a gift card from Stitching Bits and Bobs, which I had a few months. I decided I was going to use it when I saw their clearance page. The order came in Friday. I recieved the following:
~ X's and Oh's Share Your Heart and The Greatest Gift
~ Waxing Moon Griper's Club and Coffee, Chocolate and Men
~ Elizabeth's Design Dragonfly III
~ Dragon Dreams Seasons of My Needle
~ Raise the Roof Closet UFOs
~ Glory Bee Coffee for Gossip and Shopping
~ Forever in My Heart Seize the Day, Needle Diva, and Kindness and Memories
And I also got Lizzie Kate Its a Girl Thing and Hinzeit Jingle Bells, but from another site. I started on the Needlework Diva yesterday. It was just calling for me. I am using DMC 102 and 116 for the hearts and Theardworx Balloons for the words. The is my process from just yesterday. Its going pretty quick. I will stitch on it more today.
Bye for now.
