match up whilst the light is still very good. I do not want to second guess anything, just have it ready to go go go! So today is about sorting through so when I return here on the 17th October it is all neat, tidy and ready for the off.
I am loving getting all vintage American patchwork pieces through the post and deciding what to stitch on them for a series I am making to get framed for the wall .. As I have said some will be for sale as well so if you might be interested let me know... They are so different from what is available here in England and they will make beautiful pictures for our home. I have have had so much fun researching sayings, quotes and bits of poetry that mean things to me .. I love the button search as well ...
I am waiting to hear when our friends touch down today and can
This piece on the left has a touch of grey in it and that really adds to the appeal of this piece for me. What is your favourite?
The thing is when the darker colder weather comes later this month and our friends are gone and it
could be a bit of a anti climax these beauties will lift my spirit and I will be able to grab my bundle of quilt pieces and stitch little sayings on and add to them ... then taken to the framers it is enough to lift any blues that may occur!
I also have ordered a few more of my favourite embroidery threads as I was running low on some of the colours and as I am not
personally picking them up in America this year I ordered some to be sent here which 'Happy Days' arrived safely ... I have plenty now of all the colours that I use .. strangely enough the one I use so many of is called Holly Berry and as you know these are the Shaker hand dyed threads.. I love the colour so much and five more have landed on the mat just yesterday .... You can see the colours that I ordered .. so there are five Holly Berry, Apple Cider, Brick Path, Garden Gate, Tradewind & Burlap so I have a good supply of some of my favourite colours and therefore I am not going to run out and then have to wait 3/4 weeks for them to arrive. I am really proud of myself for doing an inventory and making sure that when that my Winter stitching is not disrupted by lack of materials to finish a project.
Well that is it for today do not forget there is a little blog tomorrow morning with a tutorial so this is not my final one ... It is a really good one so please come back and have a read. I will miss writing and talking to you all but will be back here Monday week (17th October) so have a great weekend all and a fabulous week ahead.
I did make up a little basket of stitchery to sit beside my bed (for this weekend here) and for me to
Thing is the little basket grew a bit so I have had to do some culling on it ... I know we will be very busy and it will only be early morning if I wake or early evening before dinner if they would like a rest too. I had a huge bundle and realised that it was far to much ... Three projects are coming with me to finish. Oh well this is it, There is a great tutorial tomorrow so please pop in and have a look. Then that will be me for a week. I will miss talking to you all.
Take care and as always Happy Stitching! XX
