Oooh a parcel has turned up ..... Yipppeeeee!!! Look HERE. Happy happy stitching!!! I am quite releaved it turned up, it did travel all the way to Australia!!
No news on the other parcels yet.... I am sure they are in the system, somewhere! Please let me know when they turn up :)
Lol... Are you wondering about my mug? Well when I was hopping about blogs I popped in on Justine. There was a lot of 'tea' chatting.... Ha ha by this I mean, it's about her current stitch project... It's got a tea pot in it... And oh it's a very pretty design. I joined in and said I don't like tea! Ha ha really I don't... I think it's because I grew up in Germany and France and prefer coffee. Well.... Gosh this is turning out to be a long old explanation!! Ok... The cup... It's rather funny as inside it says "drink tea and talk happy"! This makes me smile every time I drink out of it .... Ha ha see I always fill it with coffee!!! Ha ha
Bet your all pleased that long winded explanation is over!! Ha ha
Right.... I am now stitching inbetween the pain, so I am not managing to,get as much done as I usually do. But I am not grumbling as I am still able to stitch.
I am still working on the Stitchers Anon design called "The Humble Bumble Bee". I am really really enjoying this, it's such a happy design, filled with pretty things I like to stitch too! And I am pleased I decided to challenge myself with this too. Stitching 1 over 1 on 32 count fabric is actually alright, gets easier the more I am doing.
Here is my journey so far... The end is actually in sight!
That's where I am now.... I thinks it's actually awesome to be able to see all the photos together of my stitching. I really enjoy stitching and seeing it like this makes me think how lucky I am to be able to stitch.
I had a lovely subscription magazine turn up Saturday... It's a quilting magazine called "Quilt Now".. Yes I know I am not actively quilting but I like to read the magazines. And when I am up to it I would love to start. The magazine had a little project booklet with it.... English paper piecing.... Oooh looks very interesting.
Here is my collection so far...
Here is a peek inside and you will see why I love it so much...
I mean how love,y is all this!!! Just something about fabrics.. The colours the textures.... The patterns and designs... Heaven!! I would oh so love to own a fabric/sewing shop... I would spend all day feeling all the fabrics! Ha ha
See how easy it is to read and understand.... I love the pictures. See I am more of a picture person...dislike reading! Ha ha guess that's due to my SpLD's!! (Dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia)
And great tips too...
This looks interesting... I think they used a glue pen? I have never used one, keep meaning to...even for my hexies. I should try one out... I think it's just a dab? And when you take out the paper does it stick to the paper? Anyone use a glue pen for this? Let me know and what you recommend as I would love to give one a go.
There are great useful tips too...
And Oooh look at some point I am going to have to try and make this...
Ha ha probably bored you all silly showing you my magazine?! I wanted to share this wonderful magazine as I really like it... No other reason!
I think it's good to read what everyone likes or dislikes... I pick up so many tips and ideas from blog hopping. So there is my 'like' !!
Hope your all well, I know a few of you are poorly and have nasty bugs right now, take care of yourselves and know I am thinking of you.
Big happy smiles to you all :)
