A rare mid-week posting because I've received word that my
surprise parcel was received safe and sound by it's intended
recipient yesterday, which surprised me since it was only
mailed on Saturday. Above are the two mittens that I stitched
for Dani as a little thank you for the incredibly lovely needle
book that she made for me in the summer.
These are stitched on perforated paper, using DMC threads
and Mill Hill beads. The designs are from an old (1996) issue
of Cross Stitch Ornaments from Better Homes and Gardens.
There are four designs in total and they are really fun to
stitch. The two that I stitched for Dani are my favourites.
I'm so glad that you liked them Dani. Merry Christmas!
And my order from Stitching Bits n Bobs arrived yesterday.
Three Debbie Draper charts, with the ones on either end
also including the floss to stitch the designs with.
A pile of threads, mostly Crescent Colours, to use with various
charts in my stash someday. Is it me or does the two strands
of peach or orange in the centre look the same?? I really can't
tell the difference between them. One is Copper Penny and the
other is Pumpkin Harvest.
And then I ordered some fabric. The pieces above are 28 count
Jobelan in Raspberry Lite and African Daisy and Clay.
And some fabric in Linen and Cappuccino.
Tonight is the Senior's tour of the town to see the Christmas
lights and DH has gone to the senior's centre to join some
fellow choir members to sing carols for the seniors when they
return after the tour for refreshments.
Hope that you're all having a great week. Cheers.
