Finishes and What to Start

Hello all, the update is a bit late today as we are just getting the hang of our after school routine again 😦
The house is so quiet without the four bigger children, thankfully I’ve the smaller three still at home πŸ™‚

This past week stitching wise I’ve stitched up a wedding sampler for my Mum, she wanted it for a friends daughter and so I picked something I could do up fairly quickly for her as the wedding was a week or two past. I added to the original design so I could have it fit a regular frame and as luck would have it the end piece fit an 8×6 aperture.
Here is the result. Hopefully the bride and groom shall treasure it.

The finished Sampler

An upclose view of the sampler.

I also finished off the ornament Fa La La by LHN and will take a picture just as soon as I finish it off. That’s another ornament gift off the list and onto the next.

You’ll remember me wittering on this last few weeks about exchanges well they have been received so now I can finally show you the fruits of those last few weeks.

First up is the replacement piece. You remember the ice cream sundae that got smashed in the post! Well this here is the replacement piece and I’m pleased to say Kathy loved it. I must admit, I think I prefer the replacement piece to the original lol

Second up is the summer biscornu exchange I was in.

My one that I received.

The one I sent to my partner.

I have one other exchange that I have to show you but I must wait until after the 9th to do so.

Now that I’m dare I say up to date with exchanges, and I’m not taking on anymore until I get a move on with my Christmas list, the debate is now on as to what to start. Isn’t it lovely being in the position. I’m so rarely in it lol
The choices are the wedding sampler for my brothers wedding in November or my mothers Christmas gift…. as I’m still undecided you will have to wait until next week to see my update to see what I finally decided on lol.

Happy stitching for another week
Ruth
