I have been so busy this week stitching, making up, packing and posting!!
And here they all are, all seven little parcels for my PIFs.. they have all been posted except for one because I am waiting for her to get back to me with her address. I had until August 2010 but because I have been rotating all my stitching and my WIPs I decided to get these done.
I am really pleased with them all so I do hope they will be liked, I shall post pictures when they have arrived at their destinations.
Because I finished my Bea SAL I wanted to start another really big design, I missed it!!LOL
So I am going to stitch Grand Marquoir as a SAL with Julie. I am still not sure what colour and Julie sent links to show the design stitched in all different colours but I think I like red and am thinking of 'crushed berries' HDF by Vikki Clayton.
Although when you look at all the options they do look rather nice and like Julie said, less chance of getting fed up with just one colour
As well as finishing off my PIFs I have completed piece for an exchange and have some other stitching ready to show on reveal day, Sunday, for 'Travelling Stitcher' and my Blue Ribbon 'Between the Lines.'
I never thought I could rotate my stitching but I have and it works, except some I could stitch all the time like my Celtic Lady,the hand dyed fabric is so soft and the gold thread makes it look so special.
I have also knitted a pair of socks.
And am now knitting the rest of some of my stripy yarn with a contrast welt, heel and toe to use up that lovely striped yarn
Its just as well I don't work any more or I'd be up all night doing all the things I like best!
The sun is shining today or at least it was this morning and our snow drops are flowering, I think this long, long winter is on its way out!
