I've had a couple of people asking me why I've been so quiet.... Most unusual for me, but I have been busy and productive. Before I get into that I wanted to share with you the lovely parcel I received today from Lea in Japan. When I emptied my letter box the name didn't ring any bells, then I read the postcard that was inside the mailer, and I thought "Oh my, someones sent me something and I have no idea who this person is" How embarrassing.... Now if I'd held onto that thought a little longer everything would have been revealed to me. This is the lovely quilt Lea sent for the Four Season's Spring Swap. Isn't it just too cute for words? Thank you so much Lea, I just love it. She also included a lovely little bag of Japanese sweets and bubble gum, hmm have to hide them or eat them before Hollie comes home.
You may remember in my last post I listed my WIP's and the order in which I thought I'd tackle them. Well how quickly plans change. I decided to have a quick look to see how many more of the embroidery blocks needed to be stitched before I could put it all together. (That wasn't my plan when I wrote up my WIP list). Hmm only 5 more blocks, now how silly would that be, to put it on the back burner when it was so close to being finished?
So for the last few days I've been finishing up the stitching and today I spent the majority of the day working out a layout that I felt was pleasing to the eye. Decided it needs one more embroidery block, which I'll sit and do this evening.
