Brown/Blue Spotty

12 May 2013

It's been a while..........

A long while really and I must apologise ~ there have been a few things that have eaten into my time and left none spare for blogging, in fact I started this post a couple of weeks ago and then other things got in the way of me adding the pictures and posting!  I have been trying to keep on top of reading what you have all been doing, but even that has taken a bit of a back seat at times.

Stitching has been slow to non-existent, I did manage to finish my New Years Day start.

 
LHN ~ Summer Splendor
Recommended threads with one substitution
Fabric unknown
Started 01 January 2013
Finished 09 March 2013 
 

I plan to finish this into a bag ~ when that might happen is anyone's guess though.  My latest LHN project is Be True which was a birthday gift from Barb last year ~ I'm stitching one over one on 28ct so it's going to be just the perfect size for a scissor fob.
I've also started stitching the Drawn Thread "Love" scissor keep ~ I'm stitching this 9 times as they are to be the place cards for the Ladies who will be at out wedding.

 
 
The Drawn Thread - Love Scissors Tag
Recommended Needlepoint & Northern Lights Silk
Sparklies 35ct Edinburgh Linen ~ Barely Bronzed
Started 09 February 2013
 
As of today I have 4½ stitched so I'm halfway there!  You must excuse the crumpled appearance, thought I'd leave the ironing until they are all finished.
 
And a closer picture ~ I love the muted colours and the variety of stitches.  Our wedding is quite small and we wanted to include some handmade/personalised items ~ I know that each of the Ladies will appreciate these gifts.  We have something a little more manly for the Guys!  Well I have work tomorrow ~ another thing that gets in the way! ~ so I guess I had better go get some sleep.  I'll be trying very hard to be here with better regularity than I have displayed so far this year. 
 
Till next time.

Dear Kate I love the name cards you are stitching and I think it is really nice that you are having a small wedding. I am sure it will be very nice to just have close family and friends. I wish you a wonderful long happy marriage.
