From one 'H' to another...

After getting over Marsha's birthday celebrations and waiting for The Royal Mail to do their thing ;-) here I am with a little something to show.


Part of a design taken from the chart by Little House Needlework 'Home of a Needleworker (too)'


I stitched this for one of our blogging friends and by sheer luck it happened to arrive smack - bang on time, exactly on the day of........her birthday !! Whooo hooo - Now, if I had tried to get it there on time I would have failed miserably, so I am feeling very pleased with myself for this unknown punctuality :-))) I stitched this on 40ct using DMC threads that I matched up more or less to the cover photo........ apart from, I couldn't resist a Red front door on my house ;-) I always fancy my 'real' house, because of its bay windowed style, to be Black (guttering & down pipes ) White (windows) & Red (front door), next time it is painted outside I think I might go for this look!

I am still working on my Brenda Keyes sampler (I LOVE it but just do not stitch quick enough for my liking! I shall keep the stamina going, I shall keep the stamina going, I shall..... but SORRY (to myself) have to admit I have drifted off (go on, admit it you all knew I would ;-) actually this is the third time I have 'difted') and have nearly finished a BBD mini chart, of course LOL this is just a TEMPORARY hitch and I will be back to BK even before I can think of an excuse in my head not to be. Do you follow ?? Maybe not ?! On that note have a lovely Sunday and thanks for calling by, I am baking Fairy Cakes tomorrow if you fancy to stop for a chat and the kettle is always on ......

Take care , happy stitching

Ooops nearly forgot.   Edited to add : Did you know Ellen Chester the lovely designer behind 'With my Needle ' now has a blog ? You can find her here  :-))  Thanks Claudia for the original info :)

What a beautiful fob! You did a great job and good for you for getting it there on the right day (even if it was accidental!).

Great little fob but then I am also partial to that initial...lol. Wish I could stop by for fairy cakes and tea but I am still very much stitchbound and seem at the moment to only be getting worse not better. Maybe it is time to call the hospital once again. Oh dear! Stitching keeps me company though. I cannot wait to see which Brenda Keyes you are working on. I love her samplers!

Hugs ~

If above all faith ... I am convinced that there be a special, I believe in human beings, I believe in every person ... if we lose this, the world will no longer be world ... with much love and a big kiss to Suu ... that this evil is going on ... I spend so long ago, and that the worst is that self-esteem is low .. but one can not order in the feelings of others ... is like seeing the problems as a mountain and down time since then that the problem has trancurrido, see that was just a bunch of sand, was not mountain ... Faith, the bad times make us who we are ...
