Easter Friday

Easter begins for us today.
Good Friday.
A cross is carried to remember the walk Jesus did for us,for he loved us so much.
He died for our sins.
Romans 5:8.
On Sunday we Celebrate that 
`Jesus is Alive`.
Luke 24:6-7.
So for `Easter Celebration` 

This is my gift from my swap partner Maria for Easter.

These cute bunnie faces,chocs,threads,
 an Easter egg place mat wrapped in the lovey fabric.
The mat will be used for display plus used when eating an egg in a egg cup. 
Thankyou Maria. I can see I will be stitching and
patch working with my fabrics.  

This is what I gave Maria. 
The basket was a freebie from Bronwyn Hayes of 
Red Brolly.
The rabbit a freebie by Sue Allemand.

A closeup of little Peter Rabbit.
I used a wet tea bag to give him some colour.

There was no tail on Sue`s rabbit so using 6 strands of 
DMC thread and colonial knots I stitched him one.
Sorry photo a bit fuzzy.
He`s so cute.
I won`t put the pattern away till I`ve made one for me.

As I thought my parcel had gone astray I brought another packet of 
chocolate carrots. I had not opened Maria`s because of Customs.
Knowing Maria has her gift I opened pack and found 6 carrots.
My daughter found the carrots and we thought with words on 
Peters tum we had to add these.
I hope you all have a blessed an safe Easter.
Happy Stitching,

Stitching and other things

Hello my friends.
I have some time to chat with you.
Please join me.

My ED put me in for an Easter raffle at `The Paul Hunter Centre` 
where she attends four days a week and I won this.
Wow what a surprise.
It will be nice to share this with my family over Easter break.

A pincushion to be used with my BBDs needle roll.
This is the project for Chookyblues SAL for March 

My bag that I made for myself for February.
I`m always using this.Now onto Aprils project.

I also made and sent this off to my friend Cheryl.
Well thank you for visiting,come again.
Happy Stitching,

Time to post again

Hello my friends.
So glad that you have time for a visit.
It has been awhile so it`s time to post again.
 I`ve had some finishing to do.
I finished my Birthday stitching by the end of Feb
 and a few days later completed the needle roll.
So pleased :)
 But since then have been rather busy.
Last week my Mum had a mini stroke. 
She`s home now and on the mend. The first time for her at 80yrs to be on meds.
To give one of my sisters a break and be of help I stayed with Mum.
We did have a visit to A&E.
So glad I had our car!
Now some `Show and Tell`.
My BBD needle roll finished. 

I used this `Thimbleberries` fabric sent to me in a swap last year.
I may make something else to make a set.

The stitching pockets inside.

Felt needle pages attached at the end.
Now what project to use this for!

This was part of my gift from my friend Katrina.
Love it. Thankyou again Katrina.
So many lovely birthday gifts last month but so nice for gifts to come after.

An Easter parcel sent to my swap partner Maria
for `Let`s Celebrate Swap 2013`
Over Easter once this gift has arrived I will post on what`s inside.
Well time for me to get back to my stitching as
we have even days for hand held watering every second day with having a drought.
We are suppose to get some rain Sunday.
The nights are cooler with dew in the mornings.
Happy Stitching,
