Lovely day.... you think?

Hello lovely friends :)

Hope you are all well, smiling and stitching?!

Yes today is a wonderful day as it is Friday Night Sew In!!  As it just happens I have been really busy all day, with one stitch thing or another!  And I will be stitching tonight too :)  Oooh I just love to stitch :)

So onto something I have been wanting to show you all ever since I finished it!! But just could not as I sent it off to my Round Robin partner Catherine :)

Here is what I stitched for her...

Its a letter design from one of my stitching books... I saw it and knew it was ok to stitch Catherine's initial so stitched it!  I am really thrilled with how it turned out and I love the colors too.

I sent this with a few 'other' bits .... you know ribbon, lace, buttons that type of thing :)  

Ok onto some more stitching...

As you all know I have finished my Lizzie Kate Snowman '10 now and was looking to 'finish' it today... I have now done so..

What do you think? Here it is, start to finish...

Having been the first time I have stitched anything like this before .... I dont think its that bad... I think now its finished I can criticize it!!  Well maybe I would of moved the design over slightly and maybe even put it in the middle?  Oooh the possibilities!  I know for next time! ha ha It was so enjoyable to do though... I loved it :)  Not bad.... and the whole point I do something different is to learn and make new things... I love learning :)

Onto more, yes more stitching!! 

This is my new project... a little clue! ha ha ha 

This is that fabric that I thought just did not suit the last project.. but I think works for this one.  Its 18 count Aida in Putty color....  Hope you like what I am stitching?!  I will be doing it tonight through the Friday Night Sew In with Friends :)

So my post tomorrow may be a bit clearer!

Well must dash as I have some stitching to do!

Smiles to you all :)
