Round Robin / Gifts

I think I have been teasing you for long enough.  Here is my piece for the Round Robin.  I am sure many of you will recognise it.  I am stitching Lizzie Kate's 6 Fat Snowmen.  I have stitched the first one and plan on stitching the bird house next week before it goes on it's travels.  I will stitch the last one when it returns.  I have really enjoyed stitching on it this week and look forward to stitching on the other pieces that will come my way.


It was the lovely Michelle's birthday this week and I decided to send her a little gift to wish her a happy birthday and thank her for her friendship.  I stitched this design in January from the JCS Magazine and backed it with the fabric in the background.  I am pleased to say Michelle loved it despite my very bad finishing.  This piece just didn't finish very well despite however many times I unpicked and stitched it again. 


Talking of gifts I was very lucky to receive a gift from Elaine.  She sent me the lovely spring pillow and threads you see below as I had lent her one of my charts.  Thank you Elaine I love my spring pillow and the threads.


That's all from me this week I am off to start my new HAED Ariadne.

Until next time, happy stitching

Oh I love love love the RR piece! Those fat men are one of my faves :) How does the RR work, do you all share the piece when you're done or is it a gift for someone you all know?
Lovely gift for Michelle! That fabby for the backing is such a great accent to your beautiful stitching of the birds!

6 fat snowmen is such a fun piece. I even thought about buying the charts and using individual snowmen for Christmas ornies.
Your pillow for Michelle is lovely. I'm sure she was thrilled with it.
I saw the sweet pillow Lainey stitched for you over on her blog - very nice!
