Another Beauty Received

Look at this beauty I received from Melanie. This is the pin cushion she stitched for me for the Pin Pillow Exchange hosted by Becky SC. I love this design, it's Happy Heart Day by the Trilogy. This pin cushion is bigger than the conventional ones but I love it. Thank you, Melanie for this beauty, I will treasure it.

This picture showed the detailed stitching, it's beautiful.

A quick update on the Oakhaven Designs' SAL. April was a quick and fun stitch. The SAL is coming along very nicely.

I started on another two Quaker projects. What did I tell you, I am crazy about Quaker designs, lol. The first one is the Contest Stitching hosted by the Wiehenburg Samplers Group. You have to be a member in order to join this Contest. The Contest chart is designed by Martina. The second project is the Spring Quaker SAL. This sampler is also designed by Martina. You will have to pay 11 Euros for the chart. This is a big sampler and the SAL will stretched over many weeks with a part per week. I will update with pictures in my next post.

Thank you, friends, for taking the time to comment on my blog. All comments are welcomed and mean a lot to me.

Take care and happy stitching until the next update!

A Beauty Arrived From Australia

I won a RAK Giveaway prize recently from Lisa V. Look what she stitched for me, a gorgeous pinkeep. The design is a freebie from Textile Collection and the colors are great. Lisa's stitching and finishing are perfect. Thank you so much for the Gift, Lisa. I love it and will treasure it. Now I will let the pictures speak for itself.

An update on my Hardanger SAL, I had completed part three. Isn't it lovely? I love the white on the brown/raw Cashel Linen.

Here is a picture of the Bag that we are stitching for this SAL.

I had done the second ornament for the LHN Monthly Ornament SAL. It's the Pear Tree, the 2nd Ornament of the year.

The finishing line is in sight after more than a year of stitching. I have three more motifs and some personalization to go. Please pardon the wrinkles, I did not iron this piece before I took the picture. I am so happy to have this completed soon so that I can start another project. Another quaker? Maybe, lol.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciated and valued all your comments.

Happy stitching and take care till the next update.
