I have been stitching away in my stitching corner.... I am so happy as I have managed to finish off my mum's Prairie Schooler ornament for her. I was experimenting with shapes and wanted to make something in a shape I have never created before... think I did an OK job :)What do you think?
I have learned so much from making this ornament, working with such a small thing was slightly tricky for me. It actually took me a few days to complete as it was starting to frustrate me, and I had to put it down for a few days! So pleased I stuck with it and finished it, just hope my mum likes it now.
It was Frances that got me hooked on making ornaments! Thank You as they are a lot of fun :) And oooh I also love Prairie Schooler now too!! Job done Frances!! ha aha ha
I have been working more on my pumpkins too...
Started like this...
And this is where I am now....
I am really enjoying these pumpkins a lot, the design has them in a another color. For me I love the design but the color of the original pumpkins made no sense to me, hence why I changed them! Do you know the design? I bet you get it from the next part of the design!?
Today I received a wonderful packet from my Round Robin partner Catherine, she sent me a wonderful sheep design and some 'nice happy things' too! :)
I think the sheep design she stitched is a Shepherds Bush design, its adorable :)
Here is the packet.. lovely paper :)
Cute adorable sheep...
And ooohhh 'nice' things! :)
Those buttons are so lovely... and these pegs are so tiny and cute too :) Oh yes and look at the sparkly fabric to :)
Thank You ever so much Catherine, it was very kind of you to send me these 'happy' things too :)
I am very excited at my next Round Robin challenge... its so much fun to take part in. Its been organized by the lovely June... at the top of my page I have a button showing all the Round Robin things so far and a link to June's blog to see more :) So pleased I decided to join in :)
