It's been a while since my last post--it's been a rough couple of weeks, and I've just learned that a friend of mine is gravely ill. I won't bring you down with the details, but I will say that my philosphy from this point on is to live each day as though it's the last, because you never know what life is going to hit you with down the road...
Anyhow, this is my LHN exchange which I can finally show has it has been received by my partner. It is "Miniature Winter Gameboard", a freebie, which I altered to make more of a springtime piece. I included game pieces, some little wooden spools which I wrapped with DMC floss to match the board (seemed like a good idea at the time but I was covered in glue by the time I was done with all of them).
Yesterday I received this awesome package (same exhange) from my partner Conny.
Conny stitched Gourmet Garden on 32 ct. linen using the recommended threads and finished it as a pincushion which she stuffed with lavender. She also included the fabric you see here, lace and lots of little ribbon roses. Needless to say, I am pleased!
I am also happy to report that my Spot the Horse (Carriage House Samplings), a UFO from way back when, is finally done. I am really pleased with the way he turned out and I found a perfect chippy-paint antique-looking frame for him, so he may even be "finsh-finished" soon.
Other than that I have been working on LHN's Pointsettia House, my birthday present from my parents last fall, but no pics yet.
I have been good so far this year...working on WIPs only, haven't started any new projects. I don't know how long this will last, some of the things coming out at Nashville are extremely tempting!
Until next time, happy stitching! Thank you everyone for your comments!
