A TIME FOR STITCHING .

Hello friends, 
How are we all today ? another week already wow.
Soon  it will be February I am going to be playing catch up all year by the look of it.
We have beautiful sunshine today and it's very mild , yesterday I worked in the garden.
But watching the news yesterday I see my US friends are going to have lots of snow , stay warm and safe my friends.
Well thank you for the lovely comments on my last post , I am so happy you like my stitching and finish , I do try and make them different sometimes , I love to get ideas from other blogs.
Last night I really enjoyed my stitching but the night before well every design I worked on I had to have Mr frog out do you have nights like this.

I have been working on many more birthday gifts trying to get in front a bit this year , and also Christmas ornaments so can't show you just yet , but I do have a few things to share .

This is what I made for our dear friend Carol for her Birthday last week.
                             
                                    Another little French one I love this one it is so sweet.

Thank you Sally for sending me the photo back.
In my rush I forgot to take photos .


And here below is the finish on Barb's Christmas one .
Hope you don't mind Barb I used your photo.




                                       And below one of my new SAL's with Maryse .



                                          I am going to make this one into a center table piece .



                       And this week hubby brought some purple tulips , they do brighten the days.




                   Have a fun week every one .

  30. How cool is this that you were working in the garden. It must have been very mild at your place. Here half of the snow has melted during the last week, now we are having only about 10 inches. And the warmer temperatures are said to stay with us for a while. I'm so glad.
    Your stitched pieces are all so beautiful. And very lovely finishing on all. The recipients of your little gifts must have loved them a lot. I also love your new project by Maryse. She is a very talented designer.

  31. It's awesome you can do gardening. Our garden is covered by snow so it's impossible to do anything in the garden for a long time.
    Your finished pieces are all so wonderful, so pretty gifts for friends. I like a lot your SAL too.

  32. Such lovely gifts you sent, June! You know how much I love my sweet bird and stitching basket that you made for me--thank you again, my friend!

    I love your new SAL--such pretty colors in this one... And how wonderful to be in the garden! We were very lucky here and only got 4 inches of snow, but the poor people to the south and east of us were buried. My son, in D.C., got almost 24 inches...it will be awhile before that city is back to normal!

    Have a lovely week, June--hope it includes more time in your garden :)

  42. Hi June,
    I am so happy to read that you are well and had a wonderful week with even some time outside in the garden.
    I love the gifts you made for your friends.
    The little bird picture is so perfect for Carol - I am sure she was absolutely pleased.
    And the Christmas gifts for your other friends are amazing.

    I am pleased to see that you work on Maryse's new SAL. I thought it over a few minutes if I should join in, but at the moment my life is so much determinded by my job .... so I am really happy to have a blogging friend where I can watch this SAL. Much fun for you on stiching it.

    Have a lovely and sunny weekend!

    Hugs
    Hilda
