This is what I finished Saturday. I still need to sew the giggle buttons on but it is done. I am going to sew it into a door hanger for Shannon's room.
Yesterday I started part 9 of the EMS sampler. I sort of lost interest in it for a while there but am enjoying it now. I don't see the point in stitching something you don't enjoy stitching.
Worked this morning and found out my hours are all changing. Not sure exactly to what yet but apparently I am not having Tuesdays off after the 22 of the month. I have enjoyed my day home but if there is work I would rather be doing that.
Have had to bail out of the March GTG with my stitchy 123 friends. I am guessing I have done my deposit. Will have to check. DH's Family will be here from Italy and they have plans that out weigh mine so there ya go.
This is a Wichelt Imports freebie I found yesterday and decided was perfect for trying my new silk. Might stitch it into a fob? or ornament not sure yet. It's actually called Fall Leaves which I can kinda see but thought it was more like a snowflake.
Here it is the finished Enchanted Alphabet. Will take it to the framers at some stage this week. I have a couple of things to frame so need to put the thinking cap on as to how I want them done.
As many of you know I want to stitch Emma's Garden. Getting the fabric is the tricky bit. SO yesterday I had a play. I brought some lugana and some dye and had a go. Here is how it turned out. Looks sort of yellowish in real life. Not sure if I am going to use either of them yet? Used bleach as the chart instructions say to to get the lighter shaded along the top. Not happy with the bleach I worry about it rotting.
Tonight I am going to play with some Silk I picked up at lincraft. Just a cheapy but it is something different. I thought I might do a small Christmas ornament. Have not decided really will see what happens when I get a few charts out.
I also hit Officeworks yesterday and picked up yet another usb stick (that makes 4 I think?) I wanted to blow up some stitchery charts to make a wall hanging while I was there and ended up starting that project last night. I am hopeless at one project at a time.
Ok short and sweet off to put away the Enchanted Alphabet stash and tidy up my stitching table.
