My My Beautiful Sunday......

My HAED's Up For 2010 Blog has been updated too so go and have a look at the lovely Crabby Crush QS

Before I start into the post - I keep forgetting to answer a question that Fidget of Flossy Lady left about the green frog cross stitch - it can be found at Patterns On Line and it is called Froggie Froggie.

Don't you just love a rainy Sunday spent with a girlfriend gossping, stitching and fondling stash.  Well that was basically my day in a nutshell. See it doesn't take much to please me at all.
Kim also brought with her a present for me.  
Look at that gorgeous fabric and pattern to make a cushion - my lounge is red black and green so these colours are perrrrfeccct and notice the odd one out - she know how much I love butterflies and purple and couldn't resist the beautiful fabric. I can't wait to start the cushion but I have promised myself to finish Love Never Fails first.   Here is the next block nearly stitched.   It is lavender.
 
  
and a close up.  This has been so much easier to stitch since I discovered the secret of the pen to use to outline the stitching.

Now for the fun part:  Wasted Time 
This week has been one slack week and worst in January - somehow I just could not settle down to stitch - I was so restless all week.

  1. Crabby Crush QS   -  5.48
  2. Sweet Nectar          - 3.28
  3. Julia Flynn               - 4.40
Weekly time                    13.56
Yearly time                     93.38  (It sure is adding up)

Till Next time God Bless and may you have a wonderful stitchey week.

Love never fails is looking really nice. Wonderful fabric from your friend too! I love how you tally up your stitching time, if I did that my hubby would know why I don't have time to clean, LOL :)

I love the treats that your friend brought, especially the good chatter and gossip, every girl needs her gal pal time :) Your WIPs are so gorgeous, as usual :)
Enjoy your summer day and lot of hugs

Rainy Sundays with friends are the best, today it was rainy here too (but I have a lot to study T_T) And the fabrics are lovely. And the lavender is so beautiful ;) I love the sayings too.

Your 'stitchery' is very pretty. :o)

I think we've been watching the tennis too closely to get a lot of stitching done. (smile)

Oh and send some of that rain down here will ya? It bucketed down in the south of Vic yesterday but we barely saw a drop. :(

The Love piece looks so good. I have the charts downloaded. Each time i look at them, i want to them - they are so soothing. I guess tracing is my nightmare...

You are most welcome for the wonderful day, my friend. Great progress on Love Never...!

Carol said...

There is nothing like a stitchy day with a dear friend! Love your gifts from her and your new blog look, Annette--very pretty!

Did you change your background? It looks really great. I love it. Lovely fabric. I am into sewing fabrics lately and love to look at them everywhere online. Looking forward to see your cushion soon.
