I have been very busy completing Nicki's RR square for the LHN RR. Nicki has asked for a garden theme, so I designed a garden that I wish I could grow for her. I love sunflowers, but have nowhere to grow them at home and I have a slight obsession about stitching sheep at the moment (even though I don't have many sheep designs).
I used the LHN charts Gourmet Garden, City Stitcher*Country Stitcher and Willow Tree Inn and used DMC threads as per the charts.
This week I have time to catch up on my many WIP's, as well as attending many preparations for my brother's wedding on Saturday. We are staying overnight at the hotel where their reception is, so I get to spend a very lazy and easy Mother's Day morning having a sumptuous breakfast. Yeah!! However, when taking a one year old with you for the whole day and staying overnight, I am sure that it's going to take twice as long to pack her stuff as it takes to pack mine.
I am planning to make a floss ring tag and have purchased all the materials except the floss ring. I spent most of yesterday driving around town looking for these rings, but everyone just looked at me like I was talking nonsense. Does anyone know where I can purchase them from? I have looked at a few on-line craft stores and have not been able to find any there either.
Thank you to everyone for their lovely comments about my anniversary. We had a lovely dinner together at home that evening and my husband worked from home that day. As to how I am feeling, I am over my morning sickness completely and I am slowly getting back all my energy.
The biscornu I stitched, I found to be relatively easy to put together. The first few corners were a little difficult, but after I did a few, I found them easier to turn. The only real challenge was sewing the bead into the middle on the front and back, I had real difficulty ending the thread off and hiding it successfully. I used a really great tutorial at Annette's Acre, where she made it really easy to follow and understand.
