Wow, I can't believe it has been a month since my last post. Life has definitely gotten in the way but I do see some stitching time coming my way in the next month so I hope to have more updates soon. I wanted to share with you this lovely package I received from Becky. I participated in the Stitched with Love exchange hosted by Lainey and the theme was Tea in the Garden. I chose garden and I was spoiled. She stitched a beautiful flower pillow with is finished with perfection. I also got 4 wonderful charts, finishing fabrics, an assortment of threads, trims and linen and some great floral themed paper and sticky notes (These have come in handy at work) Thanks Becky for a much needed surprise.
This is the package I put together for June. I really went out of my comfort zone in the finishing aspect but I couldn't resist a gardening glove for a garden themed exchange. The chart is from Prairie Schooler and I picked it up on one of my shopping trips with the girls. It was in the clearance bin and I thought "This might come in handy". Long story short, I did it!! I managed to create a stitched gardening glove. I hope you enjoy it June!
Thanks Lainey for another great exchange. I am currently working on my WIP : Blue Ribbon's Read Between the Lines. I have a renewed interest in "getting it DONE" I promised myself no new starts until I can put this one on the books. Do you keep track of your finishes?? I have started to journal/scrapbook my finishes. I take a photo, write some notes, and sometimes include swatch of fabric etc. Since I give alot of my stitching away I wanted to have a little momento. I am curious to know if you do the same or similar. Thanks for stopping by, and to all of my followers who have stuck in there with me during my absence, I send you a heartfelt THANK YOU!! Happy Stitching!
