Hello everyone and how are you this week? Me, I'm stitching away. I don't have a lot to show you (not like last week) but trust me, the needles have been smoking. I seem to be on a roll these days.
I have started a bit of a rotation and it seems to be working.
Monday - Royal Holiday - Yep, I took her out and we have some progress. I am not sure about the pink in this pattern ( I am definitely not a pink person). I will have to do some more work on her dress and see how this plays out.
Tuesday - Secret Stitch - Yep, I started it - about 400 stitches!!
Wednesday - Fairies in the Garden. I added some more flowers. I didn't take a picture cause it doesn't look much different than last week.
Thursday - HAED - I worked away at this one and got 449 stitches done - for one long navy line and a total of 799 stitches but who's counting. LOL.
Friday - Noddy. Not a single stitch - Boy, do I have trouble getting this one out and putting stitches in it.
The weekend is devoted to exchanges and RR's. I have one Make a Wish, one Fair and Square and one Friendship Sampler heart to stitch.
I hope this rotation lasts for a bit because I seem to be making progress.
I have a couple of photos to post.
I stitched a Make a Wish for Jill and stitched "Lavender Cottage" from The Sampler Girl. When I posted to the blog that the wish was completed, I reread the information. I realized that I had not fulfilled her wish correctly. She had wished for a primitive design.
So, I stitched up this little pillow, also by The Sampler Girl and Jill let me know she received it last week. Now, I feel I have properly granted her wish.
I received my Easter Fair and Squares from Melissa W. They are simply gorgeous.
The little bunny angel has a silk chenille tail and her signature square is beautiful - so delicate and fine.
The design is from Full Circle's "Angel Hare Garden" stitched on 32 count cream linen with DMC, Mill Hill Beads, #4 braid and silk chenille.
I absolutely love them! I have been keeping my Fair Squares for a quilt but the bunny's chenille tail will need protected. I think I will make the two squares into a pillow and add them to my bedroom that is filled with angels.
Thank you so much Melissa - you made my day!!!
Well, the laundry is done and I am off to watch a movie and hopefully finish the stitching on my Make a Wish.
Have a great week everyone and we'll be in touch via the blogs. I do have one small issue. I can't stitch and read all your blogs and comment at the same time. Trust me, I am reading as many as I can and will try and comment asap.
Take care one and all and may a stitching angel be on your shoulder!
