I am really happy with the finish. I used the called for flosses on it. It is stitched on 32 ct. Heritage Lugana from Picture this Plus. I really like the fabric.
Next, I am going to finish the LK summer piece before I start the kit that I am reviewing. I MUST finish some of the WIPS this year.
I was so happy to get the mail yesterday. I have been reading Becky's blog http://beckysc.blogspot.com/ for a long time... I have always admired the gifts she sends, along with the great pieces she does for herself. Imagine my surprise, to find a gift in my mailbox...
And, it is perfect. It is a needleminder with a bluebird on it. First, I have never had a needle minder & second, bluebirds are one of my favorite birds. Thank you so much Becky for the sweet gift, but most of all for your friendship!
Yesterday, I was shown that spring is just around the corner. How many of you have heard that seeing a redwinged blackbird is a sign of spring? Well, I saw HUNDREDS of them yesterday. They sounded so cheerful in my back yard. I wanted to leave the sliding glass door open to enjoy them, but something about 32 degrees out made me say no thanks!
They were simply gorgeous when they flew. I hope you can see in the picture how pretty they are.
I am wishing each of you a great weekend. We have a busy one ahead of us, but there will be stitching involved, regardless!!!!
Thank you for your visits & your kind comments. They are truly appreciated.
