Last Post for today

I know it has been a long process but if I don't do it now I will forget. The Bee by Just Nan. I know it is not the official name but I can't remember what it is and I can't be bothered going for a look. I stitched this and made it up Good Friday. I keep forgetting to take a photo of it. I thought it was cute.

A New Finish

Sunday night while I waited for the youngest lad to go to bed. (He sometimes needs to sit with me if he has a few anxieties and apparently he did that night. Probably to do with going back to school (it is school holidays here at the moment) because he is in a specialist performing arts program and they are getting ready for a big production.) Anyway, I digress. So I put down the wiehenburg stitching I was doing and picked up a Bent Creek Zipper kit I had laying around the room and decided to stitch it. I love doing these kits as they whip up quickly and I love the sensation of the textures of the fabric and #5 Perle in my hands. I think that is why I love fabric. Any fabric really (well embroidery fabric as I am not into sewing, sewing.). I finished the kit last night. I think it was about 3 1/2 hours of stitching all together. Might have been a bit more. Cute I think. It is called Summer House and yes I have the other 3 houses to stitch to make the seasonal set.

Prairie Schooler Pinkeep Exchange

Today's mail bought me a gorgeous Pinkeep made by Linda from Oregon. It just lovely and the stitching is perfect. I am so pleased with this exchange. It is my first pinkeep I have and I couldn't have asked for a better one. I also got a gorgeous postcard and one of those tiny PS designs. I love those and some gorgeous bath soap. Thanks Linda.

SB Love Scissor Fob

I stitched this fob ages ago. Earlier this year. I think I finished stitching it in April. It has been completely finished for a little while as well. Anyway thought I would share the finished product. I am rather addicted to these little guys as I have a bit of a fetish for scissors as well and the kit comes with scissors. Woo Hoo. What more could a person ask for. I have quite a few other kits and 2 more started. No make that 3 more started. hehehehe

So While I Wait

For Jacob to finish what he is doing so I can add Petite Braid to Colours Down Under I am cheating and doing non work stuff.

I thought I would show you an update on the Wiehenburg Quaker Welcome sampler that I am stitching. It has not been released yet but Martina has generously let me do the first stitch.
