It's been more than two weeks since my last post, time for an update. I have two small finishes for March, a Christmas ornie and a biscornu. Both designs are freebies.

I have been rotating my wips and here is the progress. First, the March Block of the LK Flip-It Blocks. I love stitching these blocks on one piece, they are so colorful. Next, my Quaker projects, the BP Sampler and the Quaker Christmas. I really enjoy Quaker designs. I am very pleased with my color choices and progress.

Don't the blocks look good together?

QC Progress #4

BP Progress #2

I joined another SAL, the LHN Spring SAL. We have a few design choices for this SAL. I stitched the only chart I had, The Flower Shop by CCN. This is a smaller project and I hope to finish the stitching by April 15th. Will post picture soon .

It is the raining season in Singapore now. It rains almost everyday, so wet and gloomy. I love to stay warm and cozy indoor during rainy days, nice weather for hot drink and stitching.

Take care until the next time!

Exchanges to share

Wow, look at this gorgeous Winter Quaker that Margaret stitched for me. The pictures do not do it justice, it is simply stunning. Margaret's stitching and finishing are perfect. The chart is from The Gift of Stitching May 2007 Issue. Margaret used DMC pearlescent thread and it glistens in the light. Thank you, Margaret, for all the goodies. I will treasure this Quaker.

Tracy had received my parcel for the HoE Biscournu Exchange, so now I can show what I had stitched for her. This chart is a freebie by Maria. I used DMC 815 on 32ct Belfast linen.
More pictures at Tracy's blog.

I had this small finish to share. This is a freebie by Carole D and first stitched by Linda. I was attracted by the variations threads that Linda used for this pattern and had to stitch one for myself. Here it is, my blue love birds. I would probably finish this as a biscornu.

I went for patchwork class last week and finished this handmade little tray. It can be used for trinkets and sewing accessories.

Thank you for visiting. I appreciate all the lovely comments. Take care until the next update.
