A new Loose Feathers piece, how wonderful it is. I just got it in the mail today and I am already aching to start it. Its just so lovely. The fabric behind the chart is the one that the chart calls for.
I had a nice weekend of stitching. Worked on my mystery sampler and finished these 2 designs, The Strawberry design is from Cross Country Stitching magazine and as you can see I made it into a nightlight as a gift for a friend. I hope she likes it. I think it came out really cute. I am going to do the same thing to the next one too. I had so much fun decorating the first one, I think I will be making quite a few of these this year for gifts. They are very easy and lots of fun. Just have to find the perfect designs for them.
I am thinking of starting an older chart, from Liz Kate Pair O'Pilgrims. I bought this awhile ago and I would love to stitch them and have them made into standups for Thanksgiving. I think they are so sweet. They call for a fabric Mocha Lincoln, I have not seen it yet but I think its very similar to aida or maybe Linaida. I have not stitched a Lizzie in awhile. I did love her stocking designs and I have stitched 2 of them. I wish always that she comes out with another one. They were so much fun to stitch. Which reminds me I still need to stitch the angel one. I stitched the Santa one for my husband and the snowman for my son.
Thank you all for so many nice compliments on my blog pics. I really enjoy blogging just need to blog more then I do.
This past Friday was my son's 25th birthday. I can hardly believe he is 25 already. I baked a cake for him though he is working far from home. We celebrated and sang happy birthday to him over the phone. I know he was pleased even though he said we were all crazy. LOL Thats okay, it was fun. He is my youngest, my baby.
Well, its late and I better hit the hay. Another busy day tomorrow for me.
good night all.
Hope Spring comes soon to all of you. xoxox
