Anyway, back to my stitching for Friday. My two WIP/UFO’s are too big to carry around on errands with me so I had to start another piece. It was a rather small one that was designed by three ladies that own my LNS ~ Jan, Margie & Nina.
Sadly Nina passed away several years ago due to Breast Cancer. The piece titled “Hearts of Hope” is stitched on 32 ct. linen in shades of Green and Mauve. I bought the kit probably 8 years ago and it has been
to finish this piece
that I stitched up this week as a Christmas gift for my water aerobics instructor. It is a so cute freebie pattern from Sue Hillis Designs. There is also one that says "Put on your Big Boy Shorts and deal with it" that I need to stitch for my HunnyB. Anyway, I think the fabric will be perfect for the Hearts of Hope piece also and it will make up into a really cute flat fold.
The other piece I completed stitching on is a really darling Thanksgiving piece ~ Give Thanks ~ the A in Thanks is replaced with a cute little ceramic Turkey Button. I think I will try to find some small print Thanksgiving like (or fall print) fabric and make this into a ruffled throw pillow…Any other suggestions ??
On another happy note, I received my goodies from Missy. I believe I have mentioned that I won the 8th day in Missy & Annette’s 31 days of Halloween. I got a darling pin pillow that Missy stitched on silver/grey linen. She backed it with black velvet fabric and added beaded dangles all around with black spiders dangling down and stuck in a little pumpkin counting pin. She also sent a black spider floss bobbin with red DMC wound, and a bag of Halloween Candy. Soooo exciting !!!
The last bit of news for 2day is that I received my Round Robin piece from Tina and am in a quandary as to what to stitch. She sent two pieces, a Mystery/Halloween piece and a Down by the Sea piece. They are incomplete RR’s that she was wanting to get filled up. What should I stitch ?? The Mystery/Halloween piece ?? The Down by the Sea piece ?? OR stitch something on both pieces ??
