A finish or 2!

Hi everyone
Well this past week or so I finished up a piece for a biscornu exchange, finished up this month's ornament and picked up my dragon heart from the framer's! Here's the pics!
Barbara Ana Designs - Halloween Biscornu
28ct hand-dyed jubilee - Colours Down Under

Val's Stuff - Christmas is a Time To Share

2008 JCS ornament issue

Stitched as charted on 28ct unknown linen

Black Swan Designs - Dragon Heart framed
Close-up of frame & mat including filet.
For now it's back to the wip's although I am sorely tempted to start something new and may just have to succumb!
Happy Stitching all

I have been stitching......

Well a bit anyway, but not as much as usual. Been distracted by computer games of late! Here's a couple of finishes from the past 3 weeks.

First up here's Just Nan - Joyous Ark which was stitched as charted.
Next up is The Sweetheart Tree - By The Sea Sampler, stitched as charted from kit supplies.
Finally is a little Indigo Rose freebie - Spring Garden. I swapped out the blue thread for a darker purple as the blue just wasn't showing up on my fabric, which is 28ct waterlily jobelan.
It was my youngest daughter's 9th birthday last Thursday and as she was having a party, a cake was required! She requested a rainbow butterfly please Mum! Here's a pic of the cake mix in the tin prior to baking and a pic of the finished product! Cake decorating is not really one of my skills but she was happy!

Well yesterday was spent in very pleasant company indeed and a great day was had by all. I went to the annual Sydney Quilt & Craft Fair yesterday along with Anne, Alison, Karen & Row. Many laughs were had and some very yummy cakes were enjoyed at the Lindt Cafe afterwards. Thanks for a great day ladies!!

Happy Stitching all
