Make A Wish for Vonna

I finally found pictures of the Make A Wish that I granted Vonna, they had disappeared into the depths of the PC. I took the photo's on dd's camera, and they got saved elsewhere. Now Vonna received this 3 or 4 weeks back, but I haven't posted it here before. This is Country Garden by Blackbird Designs, although I didn't stitch the flowers below the border. I loved this, and I will definately be doing it again for me. So many to stitch, so little time.

I have now decided to grant another Make A Wish, this will be my third and this time it is for Su. I haven't completed number 2 yet, but I have it kitted and know where I am going with it. I can't wait to stitch it.

I just wanted to say that sometimes life gets in the way. We cannot always make deadlines, or even meet challenges, but I have yet to meet someone whose life goes smoothly 100% of the time. When things like this happen, it's best to be open, and just let people know that you are unable to meet commitments, and I really appreciate people who are open and honest. And I want to say a big Thank you to those who have been. I appreciate it. I know sometimes it is harder to say you cannot fulfil a commitment than to just bury your head. You may wonder why I say this. Well this week, I have found out that the last stitcher on my RR is unable to stitch on it, the stitcher who granted my 2nd Make A Wish is unable to fulfil, and it is highly likely that my HOE LHN exchange won't be met. I actually have found it quite funny that this has all been in a few days. And they say things come in three's. LOL

Hi Chris,

Thank you for visiting my blog and
leaving a comment. It's always fun
meeting new stitching bloggers.

You've made a lovely pin keep for
Vonna. Blackbird Designs are so
pretty, and this design suits the
finishing style nicely.

I love seeing the results of the
various exchanges that are going
on around the blogging world, but
I've never participated in one

I can see how easy it would be
to get carried away with signing
up for these things. And it's
true that there are times when
it's best to be honest with your
partner about being unable to
make your commitment for one
reason or another. Especially
in those instances when you're
participating in a RR and have
someone's project in your possession.

It's too bad you've had three
instances of people unable to
make their commitments to you
recently, but at least you've
got a good and understanding
attitude about it.

Hope to hear from you again.

Oh my goodness, you've had some less-than-happy news on exchanges all of a sudden! I hope it all works out after all, and for the record, I think your attitude is really commendable. :D Sometimes, indeed, life does just get in the way. ;)

I saw this when Vonna got it and its lovely Chris. Oh tell me about life getting in the way - I am so behind on reading blogs and hardly any stitching done.

Christine said...

What a lovely pinkeep! Everything you've stitched lately is pretty, I'm so much behind in blog reading and commenting that I haven't had time to comment in ages. Oh you've not had much luck with your exchanges lately, I hope you'll receive everything eventually!
