The first one was from a friend that I met through Craft Bubble. Maribeth lives in New York and she sent me a really gorgeous bookmark that she stitched along with a fabulous kitty Christmas card. Maribeth also included a picture of her cat Cuddles checking out the Christmas card that I sent her!! The bookmark is currently sitting in pride of place on the desk in the lounge room so that everyone can see it. It's too nice to use - I just want to look at it!
|Thank you Maribeth|
|Thank you Emily|
And I am very pleased to announce that it's finished!!! YES! And on time!! The package is all ready to be mailed tomorrow to start it's journey to.... nope you can't trick me into telling you where it's going! You will just have to wait for 2 weeks - all will be revealed on February 14th!!!
So that makes 4 finishes so far for 2011.... aren't you impressed - I know I am! My little TUSAL jar is getting nice and full, and is looking very pretty with all the new colours that have been added this month. Which reminds me I must take a photo of it soon as the New Moon is fast approaching.
So what's next on the stitching list....
1. Start stitching "Wings" for Quilts 4 Kids - due 30 March
2. Start stitching a Margaret Sherry Cat for the Margaret Sherry Lovers SAL - (stitch 3 of the Culinary Cats over the next 3 months to have a final viewing in May)
3. Start stitching "Winnie the Pooh" for Quilts 4 Kids - due 15 April
As the biscornu exchange is probably going to be deferred for a couple of months (or possibly cancelled) I have also requested to sign up for another Quilts 4 Kids child - hopefully will hear back this week to see if my "monkey" has been accepted. There is a fifth child I would like to stitch for but I want to see how I get on with "Wings" before I sign up for yet another one....
I have plenty of stitching to get on with over the next couple of months. I do hope that we don't get too much more of this sticky humid weather as it is not really the best weather to stitch in!
Well, that my news update for another day... see you on 3rd Feb for the TUSAL update
