A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
Funny how sometimes you just seem to use the same fabric over and over without intending to! This is some 28 count Jobelan that I seem to be using alot. I'm stitching the 12 Dragonlets on it and also March's JBW Alphabet Cat. Then I picked up a freebie Easter design and thought "that'll look good on green". Here's the Alphabet Cat:
I would show you the backing fabric I'm going to use but I can't find it! I acquired three scraps of fabric when I sorted out the Preschool bag of offcuts, two of which would be perfect. If only I could remember the safe place I put them in!
Here's the progress on the freebie so far:
I can't really show you this one much more because it's a present for someone. Don't think they'll guess it from this picture though!
Not much other stitching going on at the moment. Small Boy has decided 6am is a good time to start the day so I'm going to bed earlier to make up for the early start. Large Boy is a 7.30 riser which is much better for me! I have finished the Birth Sampler and the buttons arrived this afternoon so I'll be attaching them tonight. My friend should bring the frame to Preschool tomorrow then I can frame it and give it back to her for Friday to present to the baby's parents at the weekend. Hope they like it!
Finally, I have decided that the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop will take place on Good Friday rather than Easter Sunday. Sunday is the 31st and I'll have a big Theme-a-licious post to make, I'd like the blog hop to have it's own post.
There is still time to join in, just leave a comment or email me if you're a "no reply" person. I will allocate you a letter of the alphabet which will help spell out the mystery phrase. On Good Friday you post a stitched picture on a Spring or Easter theme along with your letter. I list all the blogs involved and everyone hops round like an Easter Bunny to find the mystery phrase.
There will be prizes, including some of these cute buttons I bought from a patchwork shop, for only 15p each!
The Bunny ones will be for the blog hop and the flowers for a certain event happening on the 8th April. They had some heart ones and some bigger round ones too. They also had squares of fabric for patchwork/ornie backing for £10 for about 40 or 50 5inch squares. Is that a good price or too much? They were lovely themed fabrics but I'm not sure I'd make that many ornies in a similar colour scheme!
