Lets Stitch... all finished!

A big welcome to my new followers and a very warm hello to all!

The week has been a bit hectic but from reading other blogs, I can see it wasn't only me. The weather is just not helping at all lately, isn't it? It is suppose to be Spring, but this morning I had snow, and DH couldn't get his motorbike out of the garage. How lovely....

I have been busy indoors. VERY BUSY! I managed to finish my second blanket for the charity Henry the Bear. I've made both blankets measuring 90x110, which was the size my DS received, so in my mind, i was just replacing their stock. While talking to the person who organizes it, I have offered to finish some of hers, as a lot of ladies can crochet/knit granny squares but not join them, so I'm off to her this afternoon to collect some squares and put them together. This is gonna be fun. Here are the pics of the ones I made:

And I have finished the 'Lets Stitch' pattern. This was a SAL from the Emerald Isle group and I was stitching it only on Sundays, and it only took me 4 Sundays to complete it. I have used 11 count printed Aida. The fabric was bought in Brazil, so no idea who manufactures it, but the print on it is so cute and I think it really goes well with the colours I went for (remember, I'm on stash-diet for 2013):

I have twisted the original pattern a bit. I have added the letter 'L' beside the 'C' so it stands for my initials, and I added a button in a flower/star-ish shape in the gap on the big vase. There are beads on the stitched frame and in the flowers. For some reason the close-up picture of this is not uploading so maybe next post, when I figure it out how to.

And last but not least, I have been colouring again. This is a new stamp I bought from Lili of the Valley last Sale. The sentiment reads: 'I love you to the moon and back' and it is hand-writing, as hubby chose it instead of the printed one I had with the same saying.

Isn't the teddy cute? And the bunny falling out of the space ship? It reminds of my brother for some reason ( I hope he doesn't follow my blog lol)

I have started my HAED and so far so good. I have no photos to share at the moment, but will soon.

A member of the online card making group I belong to died a couple of weeks ago and that caught me by surprise. We knew she was sick but not at that extension and it was a shock to hear the bad news. She was a sweet person and will be sadly missed.

Off to play in the snow with the little one now. Keep safe everyone!
Talk soon



  1. Hope you had fun in the snow.. Lets stitch looks great and love your blankets and card.
