Is here and I have lots to share! First off, I been remiss in showing all the lovely things that have been sent to me of late.... This is from the lovely Wawanna's Website...she held a contest and I won! It is a fob, thread counter and frogger! Isn't it cute?!
I've been drooling over this chart for some time and the lovely Jen sent me her pattern since she was finished with her project and also sent along two threads to grow on! :0)
I also received a lovely parcel in the post yesterday, but neglected to take a picture of it all....but sweet Michelle over at Ozark Sew 'n Sews sent me a most lovely Pine Mountain embroidery chart, and 3 skeins of Mori Silk in lovely pastel shades of lavender, spring green and yellow.
Thank you ALL sweet friends for the lovely Random Acts of Kindness! They are much appreciated by me!
Next Up: My CdC!!! Who Hoo!!! I finally got back to stitching it! This is my progress for my week 4 (I'm behind 3 now) but here it is:
Not the most overwhelming of progress I've ever had...but it is looking pretty good....
And finally, I had people personally e-mailing me about my "lightening strike of brilliance" and so I'm going to go ahead and show you this:
Clear as mud? LOL! Anyway I've been inspired by the Heartfelt Friends RR and especially by Lizzy's RR that is working up just SUPERIORLY! You'll have to go check hers out on the blog....anyway.....I have all the Dear Diary Charts by LHN and I was wanting to stitch them, but as I looked at them, they just didn't appeal to me individually....until I saw Lizzy's RR, I'm sad to say they would have gone unstitched....So at approximately 3:00 a.m. Sunday Morning I came up with the above layout and "design" of what I am terming my "Dear Diary Sampler". I'm placing the charts based on their counts and in smattered around the outside will be the Beatitudes that each chart comes with and in the center will be the small block that says "These I hold dear..." and then the wavy lines are a border of flowers/vines and leaves from another LHN chart to give some sort of "frame" around it all.....I've got to ding around with it some more...but there it is in my own handwriting....I tell you I was calculating and writing so fast....it was probably most funny to watch, but sadly no one was awake to witness the genius! LOL!
So what do you think?! I'm interested to know! I'll get to start at the first of the year.
I'm stitching it on a 1/2 yard of Sugared Coffee Sassy's Fabby that just happened to get in the mail the week before as you all know! So.....there you have it!
