Birthday Card for a friend.

I made this for my friend's 40th over the weekend, and I'm really pleased with it. It was quick to stitch too, which is always a plus!!!

Update on Mickey Mouse

It was Stitch-a-Long weekend on Facebook this weekend, so I concentrated on my Mickey Mouse. I got quite a bit done, and he's looking very cute!! There's not too much to do now, just the border & wording, then the backstitch.

Wanted to share this with you...

As well as doing lots of stitching recently, I have also been experimenting with card-making & decoupage, which I'm really enjoying.

This is a card I've made for my Dad's birthday next week, I'm really pleased with how it turned out! It's a Jolly Nation decoupage with paw embellishments & a simple tag, I hope he likes it.

My Flower Fairy is Finished!!

I finished her last night after 3 weeks of stitching her, and I am really pleased with how she turned out, the colours are gorgeous!! I want to do her again to keep for myself, and I also fancy doing my daughters' initials.

I'm posting her off tomorrow to the lady who will then make it into a quilt for sick kids, I've enjoyed stitching for something so worthwhile.

Update on my stitching

I've been so busy stitching in the last couple of weeks, and I seem to have a needle in my hand almost every time I sit down!!!

Here's an update on my Flower Fairy quilt square, it's all done except for the backstitch...and it's such pretty colours! Even the French knots weren't too bad!!

I've also done a couple of small stitched pieces for some ATC (Artist Trading Card) exchanges on one of the forums, they are so dinky but great fun to stitch, and I'm looking forward to embellishing them to make them look pretty!!!

I've also been experimenting with decoupage, which is good fun...I'll post some photos of my creations when they're completely finished!

I've won an award!!!!
