Since I last blogged I’ve made some more progress on this one …..
A little further on and I’m still happy with my thread choices.
This past week I’ve had my first experience of being RAK’d!!! Dear Myra over at Gr8dame's Place surprised me with an envelope that just brought a smile to my face. When I opened it up inside was this lovely project bag that she had made in the nicest fabric and, not just that, but when I unzipped it I found these two packets of sweets (now eaten I have to say!) and a skein of DMC 115 which is one that I will be making good use of coming up to Christmas.
Thank you Myra! It made my day and I am already using it to store my current project! Now, if any of you aren’t familiar with Myra’s blog I suggest you drop by and meet a lovely lady whose blog I love to visit to see her stitching and finishes. You can find a link in my blog list or just click here.
You know when you are looking for one thing but end up coming across something that you hadn’t been looking for in the first place?!?!? That happened to me this week. I was looking for some old quilting magazines that I knew I had packed away somewhere. In my search for those I came across a box that had a number of frames in it. One frame in particular caught my eye and here’s the result …
Notforgotten Farm Samplers Pennsylvania Pillowe
Stitched on 32ct R&R Roast Crown Blend & suggested DMC threads
I stitched this several years ago, it never made it to becoming a pillow but I’m liking how it looks in this frame. Still have to find the magazines though!!!!
Well, I hope everyone enjoys what’s left of the weekend! Weekends are when I try to work on whichever Christmas ornament I’ve picked for the month so, at some point today, I’ll be stitching a little more on that.
As always, thanks for dropping by!
Until next time……..
