I have received a wonderful gift by Melanie (http://melaniethewipslayer.blogspot.se/ ) in the post !
It is a lovely little needle minder with a wonderful little Stitchy Bug! It is just soo sweet!
I also received a beautiful card from Melanie with a lovely Mirabilia design on the front !
Thank you sooo much for my lovely gifts , Melanie ! Receiving them really made my day and I'm really looking forward to using my cute little needle minder : )
Today I had to finish my gifts for my aunt's 60th birthday .
First up was the little stitched heart . . .
. . . that I have now finished putting together : )
Then I put together a doubled birthday card and it was all going very well . . . until I realised that I had decorated it upside down ! Oh nooo ! There was nothing left to do but to cut it off down the middle and write the greeting on the back of the single card . . . Oh well , it is the thought that counts , right ?
I'm not too keen on the finishing process when it comes to my stitching , but once I got going today I felt in the groove and carried on finishing a few more cards for future family birthdays : )
When I make cross stitch cards I like to decorate them in a simple way - or not at all - so the stitching can be the focus of the card .
This is a Durene Jones-design that I stitched a long time ago (I don't remember from which magazine either) . . .
. . . so it felt really good to finally turn it into a actual card that I can use : )
Finally I finished putting together this little sweet picture . . .
I am not sure where this one will end up in the end , but for now I am VERY happy to be able to put it in my 'Finished Projects' box !
Happy Stitching Everyone!
