Happy Birthday Gail

This is the hanger I stitched for my friend Gail.

The hanger is about 6 inches by 6 inches backed with wadding and card with a yellow check ribbon.

I am delighted to say that Gail is totally delighted. :-)

The design by waxing moon was a delight to stitch with my specialist threads.  I really enjoyed stitching it and I did change some of the colours to Gails favourite colours and used yellow as that is my favourite!!  Instead of pink stitches for the flowers I used pink beads... lots of pink for Gail lol

This hanger represents a rekindled friendship ... Gail found me on Facebook and got in touch after many years.  We had lots of catching up to do and after many chats and texts I thought this hanger suited the pair of us down to the ground!

Thank you Gail and hope you had a good birthday evening out tonight xx

Birthday Hanger for a very good friend

Catch Up Time

Hello followers,

Hope I find you all well and crafting away.  It has been such a long time since I blogged but I am back.

My stitchy bug seemed to have ran off for a good few months but it is back and catching up will all I missed out on :-)

I have actually finished the page on my Heaven and Earth design Fireside Fairytales so I am delighted with myself.  I aim to get at least half way down the second page by he New Year .... start 2012 with a bang lol

I have stitched a few Christmas presents but I wont be able to show them until after Christmas .... don't want any surprises spoiling.  Also completed is a Birthday present for my friend Gail.  Her birthday is tomorrow so I will post a photo in the morning or once she has opened her gift!  I love it and think I will be stitching a few more for me and other friends.

In between Fireside Fairytales I have started Lavender and Lace Fairy Grandmother which is to Me from Me as my Christmas present!!  I have had this chart in my stash for a very long time and wished to stitch it as a reminder of my lovely Grandma xxxx  I have made a little start but hey its a start ha ha ha!!

Next on my list of new starts is Pirate's Life by CCN for kids.  This is for my son Mark.  I promised way back in September that I would start it and because of a few mishaps and 'road bumps' in my personal life I never got it started.  This is what i got done yesterday but I have done more this evening so will post an upto date photo tomorrow.

Stitching as at 22 Nov 11
I think for the moment this is all!

I will say that I am glad to be back once and for all and that my 'road bumps' can either go away and give me peace or be ignored!!

Bye for now, Happy Stitching and keep safe and well as the weather gets colder.
