Firstly I have to tell you all about that lovely gift I made for the lady who gave her time up to help me do some gardening...
She loved it! I think she was a little shocked as she had never had anything hand made given to her before. I am thrilled that she actually liked it.. she kept noticing things on it and commenting how pretty things were. It was such a lovely feeling seeing her so happy that she knew I had made that specially for her. I know it will be cherished as she even commented on the fact I had stitched her grandma's words on the little pillow.
Here is what I gave her if you missed it...
OK onto my stitching... it was a while getting into it as the lady stayed for a few hours chatting and drinking tea! But when I did I got going and managed to stitch 2 more letters... that means only 2 letters to go!! yipppppppeeee!!! Then onto the finishing....
Here is my progress...
It currently says Happy East.. ha ha ha a
I just love the letter T... the chick is so cute...
So letters E and R to do... tomorrow I shall finish the wording for sure! :)
Thought I would share what I ate for dinner today... as it was so yummy! Oh and good for me too!!
Peppered mackerel with fresh tossed salad... cucumbers, radish, spring onion, carrot, cabbage, 3 different lettuce and a light herb dressing.
I should say sorry for such a late posting but I wanted to stitch as much as I could before taking a photo to show you :)
I hope your all well and stitching lots.. I am working hard to finish my Eastery design as I want to start on my next project... the Advent Animals (see previous day post as that has all the details )
I dare say I will get a LOT of stitching done as Han is now over at her grandparents for a few days! oooh piece and quiet!!
Oooh something exciting to share... I have come across a 'stitch enigma'! I know I was intrigued too!!
If you would like to know more.... look out for this on my blog.. I will put the link on it when its clicked.
But if you for some reason are having bother and cannot find your way to this here is the link..
Now I thought I would join in on all the fun... see you there!! :)
Smiles to you all .... :)
