My SBEBB Valentines Day exchange finally arrived with Suzanne, it took nearly 3 weeks to get there. Now it's the first time I've sent anything to Canada, so I'll have to remember that it takes longer to get there, and post out earlier. I was a day late in posting this, thanks to getting a puncture, and then the weather. Without my car I decided to walk to the post office, and got all ready to go, when I opened the door I changed my mind, it was very, very windy, and snow was forecast, with wind chill it was -7C so I changed my mind. I had parcelled it up without taking a photo so was a bit miffed-blamed the weather. Anyway, the next day, I decided to unwrap it before posting, and snap it. After all that, it's not a very good pic is it?
Anyway, as you can see, I made a needleroll. The pattern is a freebie by Liz Navickas, you can get the pattern here. I've stitched this a few times. This one is in DMC, and has antique gold beads on it. I also sent Suzanne some vintage linen, threads, ribbon and a box of chocolates. You have to have chocolates on Valentines Day don't you?
This week I've stitched on the Sampler Garden casket, and finished the top, I'll show a picture in the week. I've not stitched much on a night this week, I've been too tired after work. Today is JN Sunday, and I've already stitched a little. When I got up this morning there was a beautiful sunrise, and gorgeous blue sky, it could have been summer. Now it's grey and cloudy. Oh well.
