Look at what I've received from my good friend Betsey (no blog) in a recent exchange. Isn't it lovely? The design is from Dames of the Needle.
When I opened the box and saw what was inside I was just thrilled. I have tried to make one of these strawberries and can I tell you, it was a disaster! I made the classic mistake of cutting too close to the seam line where you pull it together at the top so that when I did try to gather it all together it just came apart. Thing was, I knew I’d cut too close but I kept going, you know where you hope that it will work out even though you know that it really won’t?!?!?!?! Can you guess where it ended up?!?! Yes, in the bin with me totally put off attempting another one!! So, I appreciate this even more, Betsey's finishing is so good.
Remember last post I talked about the pink in the toe of BBD Merry Christmas stocking? Well, as you can probably guess, the pink is gone!!! I decided to do that little part in the WDW Lancaster Red which was what was used above it and I like it much better!
Yesterday we were getting warnings of heavy snow through last night and today. I got up this morning expecting it to be a winter wonderland outside only to find that it was a mixture of rain and sleet and no sign of any snow. I’m sure some places had the snow but looks like we’ve escaped it. Rain and sleet? Still good weather to stay inside and get some stitching done!
Until next time...
