WIPs Update

Firstly, thank you to for your recent comments - it really makes my day!

On Thusday evening I finished my weekly rotation on the Mermaids so this coming week I'm back on Celtic Winter as my main focus piece during the week.

Yesterday it was so hot later in the afternoon to be doing too much at all so I made a start on the baby announcement. After going through my fabrics I found a piece of Kiwi Illsions Blue Ice to stitch it on.

This is about the half way point. I'd like to have it all done pretty soon so that then I can add the baby's name and date in February. It has the cutest little charms to go onto it too.

I can also now share a pic of my last finish for 2005, the piece I stitched for Chelle in the Garden Exchange, Bashful Butterflies by the Sweetheart Tree. I found the fabric and shell buttons at my LNS and they matched perfectly with the linen - a piece of nameless Kiwi Illusions I had in my stash.

Today is our 3 month wedding anniversary - can you believe that, those three months have flown by! Tonight we're having fresh fish for dinner, caught by Glenn, as he went fishing at one of our local beaches on Saturday. Yum!

Yay, Katrina! Lots of stitching progress :)
Your exchange piece is just yummy and I'm sure Chelle is going to love showing it off in her home.

Love the piece you stitched for Chelle. She will love it and the fabrics all look great. Love the baby sampler too.

YUM - fresh fish, sounds as if Glenn has had a great time out at the beach.
