Well, it has been one busy week. The constant rain kept me indoors a great deal and so the needles and sewing machine have been busy.
I finished "Nobody Loves Me" into this pillow.
I added a bee, a ladybug and a couple little dragonflies to dress it a bit. It was wonderful fun and I so enjoyed doing it.
I have my Winter Neighborhood finished stitching and the borders sewn on it but I will save the photos until I have it finished. It will be soon.
Thanks to the prodding from Vonna - see last week's comments - I dug Noddy out of the pile and stitched away. Well, I got the two giraffes done, two little deer and two bears. I am pleased with how quickly it went. I am now planning to make this my focus until it is finished. I hope you don't mind seeing quite a bit of it as a plod my way through.
Dani arrived late Thursday evening and we had a wonderful weekend. Beatrice joined us for most of the weekend and we travelled and stitched. We went to the Waterfront Festival in Cobourg - wonderful. We had lunch at a lovely Swiss Restaurant - The Matterhorn - we had schnitzel and spaetzle. I highly recommend this one. The rain held off until we got into the car to come home.
Next day's road trip was to Michael's and we stopped to watch the Canadian aerobatic Snowbirds do their show. Dani had her amazing camera and took some gorgeous photos of them and the rest of the weekend. Check them out on her blog.
A group of my stitching friends came for lunch and a stitching afternoon. What fun we had!!! and the food ----- delicious!!!!!
And the never too old to learn - Dani taught Beatrice and I how to make beaded scissor fobs.
The little yellow flowered scissors I found at a Fabricland and the black are a pair of Ginghers that I won at the Yuma County Fair. The pink scissors are a pair for my Mom who at 74 is a new stitcher. I decided she needed a pair of stitcher's collector scissors and of course, no scissor is well dressed without a fob so I made her a tiny little one. It will go in the mail to her this week. I made the same scissor fob for Dani - who hinted heavily when she saw what I was making - but I forgot to take a photo.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who stops by, reads my blog and takes the time to comment. I appreciate each and every one of you. I try to stop by your blogs when I can and comment too.
Have a great week everyone and keep those needles singing.
Edited to add: I forgot to add that my DH was away for the entire weekend. Dani's rent for the three day weekend - she did all my dishes. See, there is more than one way to get out of it - Trick #327a - invite a friend for the weekend LOL LOL LOL.
