Now, after another 10 inches or so of the miserable white stuff and then this cold, I needed a taste of spring. So here's what I whipped up yesterday.
|Stone & Thread Hoppity|
This little stitched piece has been hanging around for three years and it was time I finally did something with it. Besides this I sewed up another small pillow finish for my Random Acts of Stitching Kindness group. It will be mailed out today to surprise one of the members.
A check of the mail brought a couple more items to brighten my day. First off was a RAK from Melanie who is a new member of the above blog. Melanie gifted me with a chart from my wishlist.
In addition to this, Patty C RAK'd me with a copy of one of her new designs called Let's Stitch.
A big thank you to both ladies for making my day and bringing a smile to my face!
The mailman also brought me a package containing these lovelies.
I won these fabrics from Needleworker's Delight (aka Silkweaver). It seems they have a draw on the first of each month from all their email newsletter subscribers and I was the lucky winner for February. These fabrics are 32 ct overdyed Wexford linen. They're huge cuts too. I think the one piece is 18 x 35! It's hard to see in this pic but the latter fabric is a light shade of the colour of thread used for the serging. Gorgeous!!
You may recall that Anne was the winner of my Grown Your Own Blog party giveaway. I had stitched for her one of Patty C designs called Heartfelt Stitches which is currently my blog header. I finally got it sewed up into a little pillow for Anne and it has now reached its destination in BC. I'm sorry Anne but I've had to borrow one of your pics here because I forgot to take a picture of the finished pillow.
I spent most of the day of the storm indoors, stitching on Baby It's Cold Outside. It's almost complete and I should have a picture for you on the next post. Now I'm hunting down some spring and Easter stitches. I'll leave you with some pics of the visitors to my bird feeder this morning.
