So last weekend was my birthday and hubby spoiled me with a weekend get-away and some fun shopping. He also surprised me with a techy gift. Did you notice my new blog address?? I’m a dot com now! and I have my own email address attached to my blog so if you ever want to drop me a note, you can at firstname.lastname@example.org
I received a couple of stitchy gifts for my birthday. I received these from my VBSF (Very Best Stitchy Friend):
Johanna knows I LOVE tea pots and tea cups. It is so perfect. If I had a needle, scissors and a hoop on my getaway, I would have already started this cute stitch. This will look lovely in my kitchen one day. And the beautiful pendant she made from clay. This photo really doesn’t do this piece justice. It is really gorgeous in person. She is so talented. Thank you so much, Johanna.
I received a surprise package all the way from Singapore from a dear blogging friend, Angela.
A beautiful stitch kit that will be perfect in my new craft room (coming this Spring). It says DREAM, sorry I covered that up with the cute little scissors. And a bag full of buttons and charms. I can’t wait to use them in my crafting. Thank you for thinking of me, Angela.
And now my update on Ella, the Frog Princess:
I feel she is going so slow. I have been working on her for about 4 weeks now and this is only the middle of the dress layers. I guess I have my wish to stitch on a lady with a big dress 😉 This is definitely a Big Yellow Dress. I hope to have much more done the next time I update her. In case you are viewing her for the first time, she is Ella, the Frog Princess by Mirabila. I am stitching her on Pandora 16ct Aida from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie.
So, are you working on a project that just seems to be slowly getting done?
