Lovely fabric , and a Lizzie Kate chart (one of my fave designers).Summery threads , and buttons.And a gorgeous seaside pillow and a little chicken to brighten my kitchen.I love this little pillow , especially the cute little star fish . thanks so much Lainey . Sorry it's taken me so long to show on here , every time I get ready to put it on , another post pops up ,lol.There were also some lovely card swatches , that got put out of the reach of grubby little fingers , lol.
This is what I sent to Lainey :I have nicked this picture from Lainey's blog , as when I was looking at my pictures I realised that one of the gifts somehow escaped the envelope . As it will go into the next one , I don't want to spoil the surprise .
Lainey likes sheep , and as we nick name sheep "Flossies", this LK sheep just asked to be made into a floss tag .I kind of themed this exchange with needles and thread, so made a needle book . The chart is a freebie from Samplings from the Berri Patch and is called Hannah's Flower Basket. It is part of a reproduction sampler called Hannah Mary Manley 1864 .
I left off the date ,and changed a couple of the colours to suit Lainey's likes , hope you don't mind Sherri . It was a lovely chart to stitch , and I'm sure I'll use it again , so a big Thank you to Sherri for a lovely design.
Thank you everyone for the lovely comments on Chicken Run . It is nice to stitch my own design , especially as so far it seems to be coming out as I'd hoped . I'm enjoying the fact that I'm stitching something no-one else has ever stitched before . I wonder if it's the same feeling for stitchers who do the models and first drafts for other people? I always like going out in fresh snow too . To know that you are treading where no-one else has trodden before. :-)
That's all for now . I will be back soon with updates of Chicken Run ,and more pictures of our days out .
Thanks for dropping by ,
