Good Morning Stitchers.... This will be a shorter post as I just have a few things to share.
I finished my exchange piece. I really wanted to keep it for myself but I will have a surprise arriving in the mail sometime in the next week and I am sure I will be glad I joined the exchange.
Here is the box I will be mailing on Monday. I added some of my person's favorite candies as well as some needle minders. We were reminded that we should not go overboard on the boxes as we do not want anyone to feel their box was not up to snuff. I totally get that.
I finished up Easter Parade by Blackbird Designs. I did change his little back pack because I was finding it hard to tell that the flowers were in the back pack. Just my own little quirk, but isn't it nice to be able to alter charts to suit yourself? Now I have two bunnies to FFO. I need to take my stitches to Hobby Lobby and see what I can find to finish these little Easter charts.
Another finish was my February Word Play....again my own color choices. I hope to get it pinned and laced this week. I am joining Barb at Lost in Floss for her Word Play SAL. #lostinwordplays on Instagram if you care to join us. I have enjoyed seeing all the other stitchers choices. Some stitch it as charted while others of us just go crazy.:)
I have no haul this week as I am trying to stitch on the things I have started. I did get a stitchy kindness chart from my friend, Sandy. It is a St Patrick's day piece so maybe I can get it stitched for my dougbhbowl. Speaking of my dougbhbowl, I found a new place to display it. It sits on the extra chair in my dining room. Now I have something to look at as I pass through my home. This is a second dougbhbowl as I keep one on my dresser in the bedroom. I enjoy it every day.
I have a small give away this week. My mother orders from Herrschners and she received this Dimensions Embroidery kit with her order. She does not want to stitch it so she asked if I wanted to take it home with me. Well I think it is cute but I know I will not stitch it but I thought one of you gentle readers might be inclined to stitch it. To let me know you are interested in this kit, tell me your favorite Valentine candy. This will be available to readers over 18 who live in the continental USA. I will announce the winner next Saturday.
I must take a moment to wish a Happy Anniversary to Ben and Katy. 12 years ago today they were married in a small ceremony at Katy's sister's home. It was just lovely. Now they are raising their 3 Grimmlins which includes our Spectrum boy. It is not easy but they handle things with grace.
