It's been a week since I touched the 18th Century Long Dong Mystery Sampler featured in The Gift of Stitching magazine. More because I was busy finishing up the Wish List Exchange (WLE) of which I cannot show till my partner Usha receives it. The mail out date is a long way more so I've packed it up already for delivery. And then I finished a couple of smalls. So my SAL has 'suffered'. I hope to pick it up tonight.
Zohrah and Emily mentioned that they both made a boo-boo by mistakenly thinking that 522 = 580. The symbols were quite close. Poor things, I can imagine their frustration.
I embarked on Rose's gift (she knows one is coming to her ;) ) . Finished the stitching. I used Carrie's Thread Crimson and it's a beautiful shade of red. But unfortunately you won't see it in the pic :( So that's destined to be finished as a needlebook when I am in the finishing mood ;) The design is from the french book Bordures & Frises Fleuries by Valerie Lejune. My favourite book since Saturday, a book I will treasure, given to me by Margaret for my birthday. I've already stitched 2 designs from it!
Something interesting is happening in the blogging world. Two of the nicest ladies in the stitching blogs department Annemarie and Vonna are teaming up as moderators for The Friendship Square Exchange. The inaugural exchange will start on June 1st, so everyone that's keen please check out how it works here. This is a global exchange and everyone can participate, those who don't have blogs can piggy back on their friends who have. Margaret Wong (MY) decided to join so I've offered her my blog space. Jess (AU) if you're keen, come join the fun. I am here for ya!
Comment Notes: Thank you all for coming by and taking your time to comment. I appreciate it all and find so much inspiration in them. Hope you're having a good week so far!
