It's been a month since my last post but I was out there doing things so I would have something to blog about!
A friend in need!
QS Fragile Heart - Hannah Lynn - HAED SAL
Spring to Life - Hannah Lynn - HAED
Faces of Faery 164 - Jasmine Becket- Griffith - HAED
She is my free chart that Michele Sayetta kindly sent to me for participating in the reward program for HAED and completing FOF88.
I couldn't resist starting her and I've named the turtle BOB in honour of Thea's (Gizzimomo's) husband who calls them all BOB, which I think is so cute.
My faery is being worked on 25ct Opalescent white lugana 2 over 1.
I'm giving 2 over 1 on 25ct another go as I will not accept defeat. Somehow it's really nice to work on this time. I think my tension must have loosened or something. I thank my Guardian Angel for this. Ever since he has let himself be known to me I've become alot more relaxed in life. And this new me can't be attributed to extra doses of Chardonnay either. So it MUST be his influence LOL!
Froth and Bubble - Long Dog Sampler
Mrs. Dibble strikes again! She has been infatuated with samplers lately and of course it peaked my interest when I saw one of her finished works. So of COURSE I had to go and get one too...I'm so immature! or just easily influenced...maybe both.
The poem will read -
Question not, but live and labour,
Till yon goal be won,
Helping every feeble neighbour
Seeking help from none,
Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
Kindness in another's trouble,
Courage in your own
Aww it's so sweet. In comes in 2 seperate charts which I thought was weird as it wouldn't make sense without the 2 verses together. Well anyway I bought them both. But you already knew that...hee hee!
A few firsts for me as it's my first sampler, first time working on 32ct linen and first time using 2 strands over 2. So a bit of new ground for this Princess.
The fabric is Summer Khaki which I bought from the lovely boys at Sewitall. He was so cute trying to describe the colour over the phone and he was asking me if I knew the colour of specific leaves on specific plants....ahhh no Pete but if you were to describe the colours of labels on South Australian wine bottles then I would have known exactly what colour you were talking about!!!
New Stash and stuff!
Beautiful butterfly needle and scissors holder
WOW that was a long post...maybe I shouldn't leave it so long between in the future. If I still have your attention...
Take care my beautiful friends, be safe, be happy and be yourself!
For those living in the Commonwealth have a great long weekend, good time to get some extra stitchy time in.
Love you xox
