Wow…..thank you to everyone for such a wonderful response to my new Christmas Stitch-a-long yesterday……I’m overwhelmed and, dare I say, relieved!?
You never know when you ‘put something out there’ how it will be received….sometimes, when you love something you’ve created, that you’ve put your heart and soul into, you find no-one really has the same ‘love’ as you do…it’s a bit shattering…..but, I’m learning, that’s all part of designing, and I’m grateful for what I’m able to do, that’s for sure. I wouldn’t change it for the world.
However, the response to the first block, “Noel”, has blown me out of the water….I’m so happy as I really like this one…and the rest are pretty good too (if I do say so myself *insert cheeky grin*). We made it to number one on the Craftsy Top 20 list so you should see my puffed up chest now! I’m really honoured and proud!
So it’s a hearty, THANK YOU to you all for supporting me in my quest to spread some Christmas cheer! And if you haven’t got your block yet, you can do so HERE….and don’t forget to join our Facebook group to share your progress and share the button on your sidebar.
Now, apart from that…..I have been finishing some other stitcheries……
The final block……
my Quilty Stitches sampler is done (but not framed!) I bought a frame yesterday that I thought would be ‘perfect’ but I didn’t realise the size meant from edge to edge, not the inside frame size so it was too small….off to look for another today!
Another finish (almost)….well, the stitching part….
terrible….not even pressed! You can still see the hoop marks! *eek* This is a Natalie Bird from The Birdhouse design. An oldie, called “Old Friends”…..see? I am getting through some of my K.A.R.T.S. and UFO’s, at last!
Off to visit the surgeon today….hubby has to have 7 teeth removed next Friday….they’re trying to discount abcesses causing a blood disorder he has developed! Prayers and/or positive thoughts appreciated at all times gratefully. We’re really over doctors and hospitals this year!
Sugary hugs xox :o)
