I thought I would just pop in with a little post to keep in touch:)
Reading through your blogs over the last week or so, has brought such pleasure to say the least and I feel I know so many people now!lol
What have I been doing? Well, last week most times I didn't feel like much so I spent it lying about and catching up on some DVDs and flicking magazines and of course some blogging!
Granny and Granda had taken our youngest to their 2nd home at the north coast, to let me recover quicker and easier-to say the place was like a morgue would be an understatement; we all missed her soooo much but it was good for everyone and more than sacrificial of my MIL and FIL. She is home now and we are all enjoying normal family life again (with me in the corner giving the orders, my oldest daughter would tell you!!)
It is really only this week that I have felt like doing a bit of stitching, which I will show you in a minute, but first I want to show you a photo of some yummy goodies:)
My birthday (42nd) that is so difficult to look at, as well as to say (I still feel young and I still feel like a child when its Christmas or when I get new fabric!) Well, my birthday was in January and hubby was going to buy me some clothes; after informing him that I didn't need any more clothes, I took the opportunity to tell him what I did need-some patterns from USA and some yummy fabrics??? I will show you one photo-I did get some more but in case dear hubs reads this?? Seeing his credit card account will be soon enough to find out, what you all think?
Remember I told you I was going to do some redword stitcheries? Well, I did some but I'm afraid they are Christmas! They were all I had at hand and when a girl has gota sew, a girl has gota sew! You see, my sewing room is two flights of stairs up and I had to be careful:)
The second stitchery is one of the free patterns from The Painted Quilt. I think I will stitch them to a red background and frame them-after they get a splash of coffee stain of course:)
The next two pics were meant to be redwork also, but I thought I would do them in flannel and wool applique and make them into a wall-hanging-they are an adaptation of the free seasons sew along from, Quilt happy, quilt often. The watering can block is a freebie from Primitive Blessings and obviously there has to be a willow tree in it somewhere-that's a Shazy special! I still have winter and spring to do. I'm not sure what colour of border to do-one colour or two, any ideas?
I also started a little pillow and I'm just looking at my pics-I seem to have a thing for baskets in this post. The blue wool is actually darker than the photo shows.
