Some Pictures ... at last!

Firstly - here is the, oh so cute, Brittercup Kitty that I've stitched up for my mother for Mother's Day - I never know what to buy her, and hadn't bought her anything by the end of last week, knowing I wouldn't see her until tonight - then my stash arrived from SB&B, including the Brittycat charts and I thought one of them would be perfect - I made it into my first ever flatfold and I'm very happy with the result, certainly beats expensive framing! LOL

Then we have the mostly finished ornament from our NZ SAL Ornament of the month - this is Paw Printings - from JCS Ornament Mag 2005 - I need to hand stitch the bottom and add cording - (Kristina - I had more gold thread at home, so don't worry about the extra!)

... and the Mirabilia RR? I've been putting off, and putting off finishing it - worked frantically on Monday night to get it finished and ready to send yesterday. Would you believe? Yesterday I get an email to say that the owner of this particular RR has pulled out - happened to me last month too, definitely not my favourite two I've ever stitched - and they both pulled out just as I'd finished their squares. Such is life, we can never know what walking in someone else's shoes is like and I'm sure both of these ladies had very valid reasons.

Here she is - I stitched the wings.

and lastly, my progress on Summer Fairie QS from HAED - I think I might be nearly half way!

Thanks for looking!

I love the Kitty - so cute and perfect as a flatfold :)

And you seem to have done loads on your HAED - good going!

Bea said...

I like both the ornaments but the kitty is so cute! Well done!

Isabelle said...

I love your Brittercup kitty! You finished both ornaments really well. What a shame about the RR though :(

Kath said...

That kitty is cute Lisa, and you have done well with the flat fold. Imust get too and make one of them!

Love the Britty Kitty flatfold. You did a great job with the finishing! And I'm not sure that your ornament actually needs the cording; it looks very nice as it is. I wonder if the reason you kept putting the RR piece off was because some part of you knew she was going to pull out? I'm sorry that this has happened to you, especially twice! Your HAED QS is looking good. I always laugh when I see the sizes of a "quick stitch" from HAED. Love their designs, but I don't think I have the patience to actually stitch one?

My first time to your blog and I had to leave a comment - what beautiful work you do!! I love all your pieces, and especially your Celtic Summer. Congratulations on an amazing finish!!

Wow all your stitching is so good. What a hassle with the RRs. Your Britty kitty is lovely, Im sure your mum will love it.

Katrina said...

hi Lisa, wahoo, your first flat fold looks terrific, such a cute design. I like the way you've finished Golden Garland too.

(no worries about the name muckup, happens to me all the time :))

What beautiful finishes, and WIPs!

Lovely stitching - I especially like the flatfold. Shame about the RR though.

Hi Lisa, I'm a regular reader of your blog, though this is my first time commenting. Love the Britta piece that you did for your Mom. So cute. I'll bet she loves it.
Question: the RR that you were doing, stitching the wings on the fairy, does this mean you mail the incomplete piece back to the RR owner?? I'm sort of new to this sort of stuff so sorry if my question is dumb. Cheers Judy
