Latest Stitching

Well I dont have much to report this week.  I have been working on my Stitched With Love Tea Party exchange piece and managed to get that finished up today.  It still has a little while before mailout so it will still be a while before I can show you the finished piece.

I also finished stitching my part on Michelle's robin and posted it off this week to the next stitcher.  Here is Michelle's robin so far..

I now have no other deadlines until September when I start to stitch birthday gifts for two special friends.
I also received another travelling pattern in the mail this week from Carol and that will be my next stitch.  It is LHN's Summer Splendor, so please keep an eye out for when I finish it as it will then be offered to another stitcher and make its way somewhere else in the world on its journey as a travelling pattern.

Until next time, happy stitching

La-D-Da "ABCD"

Here is my latest finish.  This is a travelling pattern that is travelling to selected stitchers around the world who signed up to be a part of it.  The chart belongs to Peggy Lee and there is a journal travelling along with it which shows a picture of each stitchers finish and a note to Peggy Lee.  What a great keepsake she will have at the end.

Stitched using Carrie's Creation thread "Old Vision" on 28ct beige Jobelan.
I really dont know what it will be finished as yet.  Any suggestions?
Until next time, happy stitching.

An Angel...

by the name of June, stepped in to stitch for me.  Earlier in the year I was part of an exchange where the person that had to send to me wasn't able to send out her exchange as she was going through some tough family issues.  June let me know that she was going to be my Angel Stitcher and send me a parcel instead.  I was soo excited as June's stitching is absolutely gorgeous and she is also a dear friend.
Here is the lovely parcel I received.

The little pillow is soo me, its a Shepherds Bush design "Lamb", and check out all the lovely extras June sent along.  Thank you June, you really are "an angel".

Here is the exchange that I sent to my partner Renee earlier in the year.

I also finished stitching on one of the travelling patterns that I put my name down for.  This one is La-D-Da's Yellow Bird.  I used a Blue Opal Thread for this design (no name for colour on label) and it came out a stone beige colour with dark blue highlights .  I chose to leave off the scalloped edging.  This chart is now on its way to Grace to stitch.

Until next time, happy stitching
