Today is so fabulous - not only is the weather absolutely gorgeous, but more importantly, my cross stitch prize from Brooke's Books Publishing came in the mail!! I'm so excited! I have been anxiously watching the mailbox for weeks now, hoping everyday my prize would come in. Here are the six charts I chose:
We have the Spirit of Quilting Angel: Spirit of Cross Stitching Angel; Spirit of Holiday Giving Angel; and from the Bride's Tree Ornaments, Eternity; Happiness and Love. Aren't they beautiful? I just can't wait to start stitching them. I think it's the best prize I have ever won!
Last night I started a small chart, available from Le Chalet des Perelles. This is another gorgeous French site with lots of free pretty little charts. I just have to stitch the border and then it's done.
I used some of my own hand-dyed threads and two of the DMC Colour Variations. I stitched on white monaco, but I think I might stitch it again on natural linen because it's so quick.
We had a great weekend. Again the weather was lovely so we tried to spend as much time outside as possible. My Favourite Girl was in a production of 'Hairspray' and we saw her perform on Saturday morning. It was so good: let's just say I cried every time I saw her on stage. I have to stop being embarrassed when I get so emotional watching my kids do stuff in public, because now I'm doing it all the time. I only have to think about them doing it and I choke up. I've turned into one of those mothers, but since it's about my kids I don't care! At least they know I'm proud of them:)
Now I'm off to tea dye some cross stitch fabric and enjoy the sunshine!
Thanks for visiting:)
