I do enjoy stitching for other people, especially other stitchers because they are so appreciative of the love, thought and effort that goes into each piece. The down-side is that you can't do "Show and Tell" immediately!
Anyway, it's Kathy A's Birthday today (she's 21 and then some). I stitched this initial K for her last month and posted it off. She emailed me to say it had arrived and Thank You so I can now show you all. Then you can pop over to Kathy's blog and say Happy Birthday too. You might know Kathy as Drew's Grand if you're a regular on the forums too.
The Summer Postcard Blog Hop is continuing on round the World. Cucki's card went to Gracie last week. Here's Gracie's Blog - Needles, Pins and Dragonflies so you can pop over and see the picture and message. I have a couple more cards waiting in the wings but would love more to send out. If you'd like to join in then click on the sunset link to the right of this post. It's a fun and free activity!
Talking of Gracie, remember Madame Muriel the Travelling Granny? She left me for the sunny climes of Arizona and now she's arrived in Italy to stay with Chiara and the Grey Tail. Here's her arrival announcement. I bet she's having an amazing time there. I am quite envious!
Finally, for my UK followers - Dawn from Crafty Kitten is putting in an order for Just Cross Stitch's Hallowe'en Special magazine. Email her via the website if you'd like a copy for just £7 plus usual P&P. Of course I never feel it's worth paying P&P for just one item so some of her gorgeous fabric will probably fall into the basket at the same time. It'll protect the magazine in the postal system too...
