Had a lovely surprise today when I recieved a cross stitched birthday card from my Mum. Its the first time anyone has ever cross stitched me something & ment especially more as Mum has problems with her eye sight when stitching.
Finished off Sues Calender bear over the weekend so, that will be sent home to her soon. Ive stitched the main banner, February & April bear on this piece.
Am planning to finish off my part on Ruths Christmas tree of sheep tomorrow.
Sues Bears are coming along nicely. Ive finished off the large banner that Id started a few weeks ago & the April Bear (or is that Rabbit!) is starting to take shape nicely too. Hope to have this one finished this weekend.
The postman had fun yesterday when 3 more RRs were delivered at once. The Teddy bear piece is Joys (UK) & so is the odd looking brown blob. This is actually the corner of a piano with Disneys 101 Dalmation climbin all over it. The other gorgeous piece is Lynns(UK) animal RR piece.
Ive finished up all I need to do on the background of my Country Companions piece (though I would like to stitch the Rabbits head aswell if I get time). Im putting this one down for now & continuing on Sues Bear calender.
Had a nice suprise this morning when my 'About You' RR arrived home (I hate Four letter words). I was expecting to still need to do one part myself but, the girls have near enough completed it for me....just a few extra washing up bubbles to put in. Many thanks to all at CSRR who stitched on it for me.
The Country Companions piece has come on well over the weekend & Ive finally finished all the snow at the bottom. It was rather boring doing all that block stitching but, I can get on with the more interesting bits now.
Was my sisters birthday today & I bought her all the threads/beads etc for her latest project (she loves stitching too).
For Christmas last year, I stitched her the Gargoyle Kiss piece pictured that shed wanted for ages. Suprisingly, even though Ive stitched for over 20 years, it was my first evenweave piece. My daughter bought her the chart for the other matching Gargoyle piece pictured.
Now she has all the threads aswell, shes got no excuse for not starting :0)
This is a piccie of the RR Im working on this week, Ive also included a piccie of the chart. Its my piece for an open theme (any subject) RR. Its a Country Companion, Carol singing project from the 1997!! Christmas Cross Stitcher Magazine. Im stitching the background & everyone else will be stitching one of the characters.
Heres a quick look at the round robins I have with me at the moment. The Calender of Pigs (just started) is mine. The animals piece is Susans (Canada)...I stitched Tom Mouse, bottom right. The Christmas Tree of Sheep is Ruths (USA). The Fantasy Piece is Susies (UK) & the Calender of Bears is Sues (UK). I dont have too many with me at the moment which is lucky as there are quite a few new RRs starting soon & I need to get them ready. I am involved with a lot more but, they are flying about around the world at the moment....Piccies will follow as & when they arrive :0)
