Morning has broken
I know some of the ladies over at stitch and stash will have seen this finish but not framed,so ta-da here it is in all its framed glory . Awake the Dawning Day by Blackbird designs, stitched over one on Sassys fabric Celery with the called for threads.
I also couldn't resist the music to go with it. If you dont want to listen just turn the volume down.
I think this maybe a bit long ,so if you want to go grab a coffee ,feel free!
Will do stitchy news first this week ,just to ring the changes.
I also finished for the s/s monthly challenge , 'BE TRUE'by Plum Street Samplers. Again it was done on Celery over one with DMC threads. As it was a blackbird I have had it framed for my 'wall'. Thanks to Christine for choosing this free design for us to stitch .Wonder what will be next months.
By the skin of my teeth I finished March ornie challenge over at S/S.
Entitled Merry Winter by Country Rustic Primitives ,I do like these little designs and have got 4 more to do ,so that will take me to July!!
This is stitched on Osnaburg fabric and with the DMC threads asked for. I used hairy string for a hanger.
Very simple but I like them.
I think that it is about all for my finishes, but here is my wip for QC for March,Oh I am so pleased with this.
Page 2 is finished ,onto page 3.
Sally ,Hazel and I are starting a SAL ,The Sampler Girl At home with Jane Austen. We are starting on the 9th April and I am really looking forward to it.
Speaking of Sally, this week I have been awarded by Sally The Beautiful Blogger Award, which i was so thrilled to get.
Then I had Sunshine Awards from Clare, Babs and Chris . Awww thankyou so much and I really am absolutely delighted that you think I am deserving of an award, however although I am chuffed to bits, I have decided not to put these on my blog, (I have told the ladies involved as I should hate to hurt anyones feelings )I have decided to make this an award free zone. So to all of you who read the rambling woman and comment ,you are all special to me and I do hope you continue to visit,and read me go on ,and on ,and on ,and on !! lol.
Now next is Stash for this week well on Friday I opened the door to a smiling postman, yes we have a smiley postman,and I was absolutely speechless when I opened a parcel from my Irish friend Anne , she has recently returned from NY and thought she would send me a 'few' goodies from the big Apple. Just thought I would share.
Anne visited a shop called Annies Attic and purchased some Soy Silks hand dyed threads. Of which she sent me 3, in pink lilac and cream.I hadn't heard of these threads before and I will enjoy doing something in these along with the Mandarin Floss that she sent
Also in the parcel was
Then there was this
Shaun the sheep is now hanging on my bathroom door handle. I cannot beleive that ANNE sent me this parcel of gold ,she is so very generous and she made a dull Friday into a rainbow of a day. Thankyou again so much Anne, I know you read this ,but she has not a blog of her own , her work is fantastic too and I think she should have a blog to show you it all ,shall we nag her girls as Julie and Karan did me!!See what you two started.
