Fair & Square Round 5 Finished!


Yay I just finished stitching up Heidi's squares for round 5 of Fair & Square. I'm very happy with the results of what I picked for her. Not only the design, but the fabric and thread! Now to find some extra goodies to include in Hedi's parcel!

Tomorrow I'm going to work on Michael Powell's Mini Cottages 5, since that is my next piece closest to completion. Tonight I brought Christin home with me for a stitchy weekend! I tried to arrange a get together for either Saturday or Sunday this weekend, but things just didn't work out for anyone to be free to come over. Except Manon said she'll try her best to come out on Sunday (she just had a lovely HD so check out her blog!) to stitch with us! However I'm afraid that might not happen since Environment Canada says we may get hit with a nasty storm late Sunday/Monday that is supposedly now just developing over Texas. I can assure you I'm ready to batten down the hatches and stitch! If anyone is in the Ottawa area and would like to come stitch... drop me a line, the more the merrier!

Christin was also a sweetie and while we were out grocery shopping Christin let me pick out some flowers. She knew Todd wouldn't get me any for Vanlentine's Day so she treated me to some as well. I picked out some gorgeous orange gerbers and white-ish carnations.

Wish I could join your stitchy weekend but I think it might take me too long to get there from the UK. Have a great time and if you get snowed it you can make it a stitchy week!

I would also LOVE to join you, but you know how it is when you are half a world away!!!!
PL is looking wonderful and I think the DMC variations is turning out lovely. Hope that everything works out well for your foot and that you get relief from the pain.

Have fun with your stitching buddies:)

The wonderful(NOT!!) storm is now in AR. All we are supposed to get is rain. In fact, we have a flood watch out for the whole day. I hope it doesn't turn bad for you!

The storm is here - in Texas I mean. I don't know when it's getting to you but it's supposed to thunderstorm here all weekend - you might not get it until the beginning of the week.

Ummm... what storm? I didn't hear anything about a storm! Sheesh I hope I can still come tomorrow, we'll have to wait and see now. I was planning on bringing the new blackwork, it's an easy stitch in case I am talking too much LOL... and yes, you can borrow flossie. I'm bringing it home tonight, ready to hang so I'll post a pic for you. Talk to you later, I'm POOPED.

Beautiful flowers, I love Gerbers!
Say hi to Christin for me. Sorry the weekend didn't work out for everyone. We'll have to try again soon. Stay warm and cozy in the storm!

That was very nice of Christin. I hope you have a great weekend stitching. Hopefully the storm won't be too bad. We are going to be on the warm side in Boston with this storm so we are going to get another heavy rainstorm. My basement is still flooded from the storm on Wednesday.

Lovely flower, so bright and cheery. Wish I was closer and could come, a stitchy weekend would be so fun. Hope your weather doesn't get to bad, they are forecasting wind, rain, freezing drizzle, and sleet for our area, yuck.
