Sunflowers

Yesterday I had 2 hours between clients, and it was a gorgeous sunny evening, so I decided to take Sunflower Fairy with me and check out a cafe that I hadn't been to before. They have a really lovely sun room. I ordered a mango smoothie and sat down for some public stitching. That's the first time I've actually done it out in a public area where people can not only look at what I'm doing, but ask about it too. It was fun. :D
The smoothie was so good!

Today It's going to be me, my needle, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the Tudors. Can't think of a better way to spend my day off.

2010 finishes

I wanted a post to put in all my 2010 finishes, so here they shall be.
I don't recall the exact order everything was done in :) I did the Brittercup designs Seasonal Motifs Spring and Summer.


The last one was mailed to my friend Jess in Arizona. The top two I made for my Mom. Next up is Britty Panda. I just did him and not his mother. :)
and one by Just Nan, called Spring Peepers.
I made this for my friend Tim in Australia, It's done entirely with one colour of Dinky Dyes in Shiraz and 3 types of blending filaments. Very Sparkly!
I made these two for my friend Deb in Oregon, A trivet with Donkey Kong, and Val's Stitchin' Stuff pattern. She loves gaming and her cats, so these were perfect for her. :)

With the threads from the Val's pattern above, I got a free pattern from My Aunt's Attic to use some of them up.
ooh almost forgot this Sue Hillis Pattern made for Nick in New Zealand,


Anyway, that was it for last year!

I know I said I wouldn't..

But I ended up doing another order. See, my fav stitching ONS was having a clearance of their Namaste Buddy cases, and while I already have one, I made up something in my head about needing a second. Plus it's light pink, and I like pink. Of course, I couldn't just order that! I finally got my order today!

I ordered Mirabilia's letter S and all the goodies. The pictures I took aren't the best quality, but whatever.




I have a piece of hand dyed jobelan in raspberry lite, which I did my floss toss on. I'm still not sure if I want it so pink, but we'll see after the next couple projects. I have time to think about it.

I have something!~

Finally finished Warrior by Firewing Designs. Stitched on 28 count Queen Anne's lace with Threadworx Rocky Mountain. After running out of thread twice and having to wait weeks and weeks for delivery, and then me getting distracted by World Of Warcraft, I have finally finished him! Once he's pressed he'll be sent off to his new home in Hawaii :)

Hallo 2017!

I have a finish for this year! This project I only work on at work, when the client doesn't mind and I have the time. Usually during...
