I am pleased to say that the brilliant Mii (Ingrid) guessed the correct designer and name of the 'mystery' stitching I was doing...yippppeeeeee!!! Well Done!!
So yes the designer is Blue Ribbon Designs and the design is called "Five Houses Of Hope"... And some of you know I love ALL Blue Ribbon Designs! If your not familiar with the designs, in my side bar I have a link to the website :). Go take a peek... Belinda, the designer is awesome, she designs wonderful projects to stitch... Go look!!
So now you know what I am stitching I guess I should show you all what it looks like ..... So you then are aware which part I am stitching and what it will look like when finished.
I should tell you all that this design was created only for a special event.. Belinda actually took part in this too! Like I say.. An amazing person!! Belinda designed "Five Houses Of Hope" for a charity event, (which took place last year) where this design was only available to donors. All proceeds benefit the Susan G Komen 3-Day event. (www.the3day.org). Belinda took part in this event, she walked 60 miles over the 3 days!! She walked to honor the survivors, to support the fighters, in remembrance, to raise awareness, to raise funds and finally she walked for a CURE for breast cancer. I can tell you all that Belinda did walk with her team mates and raised a lot of money for breast cancer... I am not sure of the exact figure but believe me it was a LOT!!
(Goodness I hope I got all that information correct? And that Belinda does not mind me mentioning this?).
As I could not be there to walk with Belinda and her team mates, I supported them by donating to get this exclusive design. I am now thrilled to be stitching...
So here is what the actual design looks like...
A close up... Sorry I am useless as you all know with taking photo's!! :(
That is the design... And now what I have done so far....
I am thrilled with my progress and ooooh I love it, I am actually finding it hard to put down!! I just want to stitch and stitch it!!
I think the fabric is ok too, which I am thrilled about. See I hand dyed a piece of 18 count cream Aida... It come out like this.....
Yes I am happy happy happy...stitching this design is making me happy, I think it's the colours? It's just a joy to stitch. Sitting in my bed, yes I am still here!! It's helping me pass the time, in a really happy mood!!
I want to say a huge thank you to you all for playing along guessing who the designer was... Thank you it was a lot of fun.
Hope your all well and happy?
Thank you for popping in on me... You make me smile with the lovely comments you all leave :)
Ok ... I am going now.... See you all tomorrow :)
