First, it was my friend Dani's birthday last week and I sent her a little package. Included was this freebie design. Not even sure where I got it but Dani likes blue and peacocks so what better to stitch for her. She is going to make it into a little pillow. The thread is DMC Variations #4230 and was stitched on a piece of hand dyed that she had given me.
I picked up my Little Book of Stitches for the first time in a couple of months and completed page 4. This is a really fun and quick stitch. The color is WDW Peacock.
And out of the bottom of the pile came Paradigm Lost. I cannot remember when I stitched it last. I think that the huge motif I am working on now intimidated me and I tossed it in a corner for quite some time. The large motifs I find sometimes make it seem like a long time before you get anywhere.
And for something a little different - I also do swedish weaving. This will be a wedding gift for June so I really need to get my needle flying. Will show you progress as I work along. I hope you enjoy something a little different.
I also completed and mailed a replacement Fair and Square for Round 5. I have my squares done for Round 6 and am waiting on a package so that I can bundle this one up and wing it on it's way.
My three wallhangings are all sandwiched and ready for the machine quilting. I may not quilt these until I get back home.
We are starting to talk about returning home and are picking up some last minute things to take home with us. We are heading out April 17th. We are hoping that the snow will be gone at home when we return but everyone we talk to says there is still lots.
