Gifted gorgeousness May
Hello friends and a big welcome to my new followers too
It's been a bit of a dry month stitching wise. Both my kids celebrated their birthdays at the end of April (a day apart) so most of the second half of April passed in a blur of cleaning, party planning and cooking. And the beginning of May recovering so I missed wipocalypse and the smalls sal check ins too.
Yesterday I heard that the travelling box I do with friends is coming to me again in the next couple of weeks. It's a lot earlier than planned due to circumstances of some of the other ladies who take part so I spent yesterday evening pulling patterns ready to start stitching. Today I shall kit then all up and finish the 9th part of the ABC sal.
So here is what I did manage to make...
They will both be gifts for friends when I can decide how to finish them off. I'm erring towards a chain rather than cords. Thoughts?
I did have this fantastic parcel from Laura as she was having a clear out...
Lots of fabric, books, 2 kits and some beads and embellishments.
I've had a couple of lovely non stitching related gifts too this week. Hubby brought me a lovely Paperchase writing set and my sister in law brought me a Cath Kidston handbag! Lucky me!
I'm off to check out the other GG participants and see what you've all been up to. Have a great week.
