I will save that information till the bottom. Aren't I a tease? lol
I received the most wonderful gift in the mail recently from Carolien. She sent along a set of Dutch tea towels and some Dutch candies and cookies. She said "If you don't like the cookies you don't have to eat them." They were the first thing to disappear - especially the wafer ones. Carolien is such a sweet person and I truly appreciate her gift.
My fingers and Ginghers have been busy this past week.
Here is the flannel quilt I finished and sold the first of the week.
I bought this fabric and the pattern for a bread basket liner while I was in Texas.
I picked up "Royal Holiday" and paid it some serious attention. You can see the before and after.
And the Oh, no I did it again part. I am so embarrassed to write this.I haven't even told my stitching sisters I am doing this one! Do you remember when I offered to stitch Noddy for a friend's daughter? It took me two long years and a lot of grumping and complaining on my part and you all had to listen to me each and every time.
Well, I've done it again. And it's on AIDA again.
It also includes this huge bag of filament and most of the threads are combined with this awful stuff!
A friend suggested that I just pull one strand of 6, stitch till it's gone and put it aside till the next time. I am going to try that. I am doing it for a friend who has had a very rough year with the loss of several family members and she is not a stitcher. I am hoping to get through this one without kicking myself in the butt too many times.
And here is a photo of the visitor we had the other afternoon when we were sitting on the deck - a red fox. Apparently, the entire family has a den nearby.
If you are interested in the draw for some dog/cat collection booklets, please see the post below. Draw is open until June 7th.
And the fun part - I am off to a stitching weekend in Georgian Bay with 12 other stitching sisters. Oh, won't that be fun! I can hardly wait. Dani, Christin and I are starting the weekend early by spending Thursday night at Beatrice (even though Beatrice lives 5 mins away I'm staying overnight too!!) And my dear sweet husband just doesn't get it!
Until next time keep those fingers and scissors flying!
