'I'm so Lucky '& Stitching Stuff

Hello again :)

I am soooo lucky to have such lovely stitching friends.......look what arrived in the post a couple of weeks ago.

I was going to post this a few weeks ago, but I've been so busy (and worn out!) that I never got round to it until now. What you see before you is a lovely suprise I received in the mail from the lovely talented lass that is Singular Stitches

I visited her blog one evening and commented on some cloths that she had knitted. I remarked on how lovely they were (and they are I can tell you - check it out) and low and behold - a couple of weeks later I got this fantastic washcloth (which in my opinion works better than a loofah) and some lovely Mary Kay products (some lovely body wash and some moisture lotion). They are aptly called 'Embrace Happiness', which is just what I did when I used them - they smell fab the fragrance lasts for ages! Isn't she just the greatest? :)

I thought it also about time I actually put some stitching on here, so here is the L*K piece that I completed a few weeks ago - 'In All Things Give Thanks'. I stuck to the original threads used (which were an absolute pain to use - they kept knotting up on me every two seconds - and with Thread Heaven on them as well!) but I got there in the end.

And here's the project I'm currently working on. It's an Art-Stitch design called 'Rose Trio'. It's an absolute dream to stitch because the colours are so simple - just what I need being as my brain has decided to take up residence in my bum with everything that's going on at the moment!

And...YAY! My fabric arrived from Silkweaver for the Dracolair 'Phoenix' project that I'm going to be doing when I have completed 'Rose Trio'. It's a 28-count opalescent lugana in 'Sparkling Sundown' from their 'Reflections' range...here's a piccie - a not very good quality one I know but you can see the way it sparkles - I'm glad it lives up to its name!

It's things like the above that make me realise life is worth living and it makes me humble. I really am a lucky gal!

I shall be posting more of my holiday photies later on in the week, so watch this space - thanks for dropping by and have a great week :) xxx

You're quite welcome!! :o)

I love the LK Give Thanks! The thread you used, even though it was a pain, really makes the design. Glad you stuck it out!

The roses are really pretty! They remind me of Mary Engelbreit.

Love your holiday photos, look forward to seeing more of them. I also love the Rose Trio you have started stitching, what pretty colours.

Singular Stitches IS an angel!
lovely fabric, and great projects! I am very attracted to this roses project.
What threads were such a mess?

Carol said...

Phoenix is going to be stunning on that fabric - can't wait to watch it get stitched up now :-)

Your L*K is lovely, well done for persevering with the threads.
