Since my last post, I haven't been feeling great - maybe it's to do with the weather. I haven't done as much stitching as I would've liked, but here's my progress on the SAL with Jane. I need to add some flowers quick as it's looking quite dull!
Here, at least, is the happy couple! I feel like the branches are pointing at each of them, here's Wilma, and here's Fred.
I had to swap out a couple of colours as they were too light for my linen. As much as the photo makes the linen look dark, it's actually a light cream colour. I had to darken the colours used on the guy's shirt and for the apron and pantaloons. I think the pantaloons are a hoot!
This has been a great week for presents from other stitchers. I won a giveaway on Eva's blog. She was giving away the beautiful pink crocheted fob, but she included lots of other goodies in with the package. It is also the first biscornu I've ever received! Her work is beautiful. Thank you so much, Eva, for your generosity!
Speaking of giveaways, Terri has a great one for her one year blogoversary! It's always a pleasure to visit Terri's blog and you will usually leave there with tears of laughter! (That was meant as a compliment!)
Lastly, as we head towards the end of the Winter Olympics, let me share with you a piece of creative Olympic 'art'. Someone in the neighbourhood decorated this traffic circle with a figure skater. Isn't that great?
I am anxiously waiting for my new Blackbird Designs goodies from Market but I have not even heard a peep from the ONS so I'm not sure what's happening. I threatened Margaret that if she finishes stitching anything from the book before I even receive mine, she will be in big trouble! :-)
Thank you for stopping by and thank you for your concerns re my dental saga! I'll let you know when it has a happy ending! Have a wonderful weekend!
