Happy Mother's Day Mum

I thought I would show you all what I made for my Mum this Mother's Day.

Its a freebie design over on this blog.

I altered the design slightly by only using the large "M" and none of the bordering designs, and in the crown I wrote the word "Mum". I also added some beads into the crown.
It turned out to be a nice size and I suggested to Mum that it would look lovely as an ornamental pillow on her bed.

I had a lovely day today.  My boy bought me some lovely gifts including a decorative mousepad, a tray for my stitching smalls to sit on, some shell ornaments, new fabric scissors and slippers.  I was really spoilt!!

Hope you all have a lovely Mother's Day if you are celebrating it today.
Until next time, happy stitching

Progress On Sarah

I thought I would show you all the progress I have made on my current WIP - Carriage House Samplings "Sarah Spurr".


It is quite enjoyable to work with but she has gone away for a little while whilst I work on an exchange piece and one piece I am thinking of doing up for my Mum.

I have also signed up for the SAL Sorpresa 3 that Sara Guermani designs.  I have always admired her SAL pieces in the past and was happy to make it in time to sign up for this one.  I have my fabric ready to go and need to catch up on Part 1.
I have also signed up to receive the new LHN Mystery Sampler "Song of the Seasons" when that starts.  I havent signed up for any other Mystery Samplers or SAL's  in the past but I always wish I had when the final pieces come together, so a quick decision was made to get my order in for the complete lot.
It looks like I am going to be very busy over the coming months!

Until next time, happy stitching
