First of all let me report a finish……
Yes, I put the final stitches in BBD’s Pins and Tulips Pincushion a couple of days ago. I did enjoy this one. Now, me with my symmetrical mind couldn’t just stitch the letter L in the top left corner. No, it didn’t sit right with me that there wasn’t a letter in the bottom right so I had to put a T for my surname there! A little bit of a change from the original but it works for me.
Next up is my new start. I wanted to squeeze in one last summer piece before I start getting the urge to do some autumn stitching. So, here’s BBD’s Summer Basket which I’ve seen popping up on various blogs the last little while. I just love the colours in this one and, of course, it’s an alphabet …… need I say more?!?!?!! I put the first stitches in this yesterday and here’s my progress. I am not using the suggested fabric but have gone with a cream which I think should work fine.
I’ve had some nice mail in the last week, the latest BBD Anniversaries of the Heart has arrived plus I ordered this fabric from The Pied Piper. I’d seen their name mentioned on KarenV's blog and having checked their website saw several pieces of fabric to order. Quick, prompt service and I’ll be ordering from them again.
Next week DS#1 will be home for a few days. Tomorrow he’s off to Edinburgh. When he was a student he had a summer job in the Edinburgh Festival and he still goes back every year to meet up with friends and go to some of the shows. Hope all is well in your part of the world and, as ever, thanks for dropping by!
