Just a quick note before I get into stitching matters.
DH's wrist is still not better and he is having a MRI done on it before he goes to the surgeon next week.
Also DD & her partner are travelling somewhere in South America and I am worried sick about them and this Swine Flu. They are heading to Chile at the moment and are not due in Mexico until late July. I haven't heard from them for a few days now and the last email I had she had been sick with a sore throat etc. She tends to get colds easily. I am praying that God will keep them safe.
This was my extra stitch piece for the week. It is a quick and easy ornament. I love the colours on the fabric which is Belfast Linen 32 count - Dutch Blue. I am giving this ornament away. We are doing a Friendship Circle with the women of our church and I decided to stitch this for my partner.
Well it is the last day of April here in Aust. and I am not going to quite meet my goals for Leaf and Daydreaming Fairy QS. But I am okay with that.
My next surprise stitch is a new start called "Butterfly Ball". It is a gorgeous Alphabet with Butterflies all around it. It is from the Cross Stitcher's Club. I took out a subscription earlier on in the year and decided that as I have all these patterns I should at least stitch some of them. This pattern has the most beautiful colours in it and I am not sure yet whether to do it on a plain piece or a hand dyed. Will have to do a floss toss.
I have spent this morning filling in all the work sheets for my stitching for the month of April and today I will be just working on Daydreaming Fairy and maybe Leaf will post my times on the week-end. I don't think they are going to be as much as last week.
I am a big fan of HAED and they have a wonderful rewards programe going until someone decided to abuse the system and try to scam a free pattern by sending in a photo of the front page of a pattern - what were they even thinking it didn't even look stitching. Then to top it off another woman stole a picture of someone's finished piece from Facebook and didn't even bother trying to alter the picture at all. You could clearly see they were the same piece. That is why I label all my stitching. How low can people get. I am really saddened to see this happening but to tell the truth I expected this to happen somewhere along the line. What is this world coming too?
