Well, hi there all. It has been another busy week for me. The stitching and finishing bug has hit hard so I have been quite productive.
I did receive a message from Melissa that she received the blogaversary package that I sent her.
Melissa and I had participated in the Winter Neighborhood RR together and my theme was snowmen. She is also a bunny lover so this is what I came up with.
A snowbunny to remind her of the RR and me and the bunnies because she likes them. This chart is from the Cross Stitch Calendar. I added some other goodies to say thank you.
I understand the package was a hit.
I took out the sewing machine and finished my Winter Neighborhood RR.
Beatrice and I find this lovely fabric while we were browsing quilt shops and I thought it fit with the little birdies in the blocks. I quilted it and added the buttons. I will add some tabs at the top to hang it but ran out of fabric.
Also this week I got a call from Donna - a member of my Friendship Sampler RR. We discovered that we did not live very far apart. Donna was camping in the local area so she and I chose to meet at Knowledge and Needles and she handed me over 2 RR's to work on.
It was a real pleasure to meet her and we are currently making plans to meet again.
Here is Simone's RR done and ready for mailing.
Simone chose to use red for the hearts and loves overdyes so I chose NN# 153 Razzle Dazzle Red and white to stitch my heart.
Here is Ann's RR done and ready to go in the same package.
Ann wanted us to use our favorite DMC colors so I chose DMC 991 and 993 to stitch my heart.
It had been a while since the Friendship Samplers have been on the move. Hopefully, now they will be moving well again.
I am currently working on Emerald Mermaid for the Mirabilia RR I am participating in. I will save a photo until I have more than a few strands of hair to show.
I also completed my Round 14 Fair and Squares and they will be in the mail flying to Finland by week's end.
DH and I took the opportunity this weekend to make a flying trip to Northern Ontario to celebrate Leo's uncle/godfather's 80'th birthday. He is a very special man and the only member of that generation still alive in Leo's family. We saw so many family that we had not seen in some time. It was wonderful to be all together. And the little ones, I think there were around 8 all under the age of 6. We sure are a prolific family LOL.
Thanks to all of you who have stopped by and left such lovely comments. I do appreciate each and every one.
Until next time, keep those needles flying.
