Party Stitching

Hello my friends.
Over the last few days I have stitched
`Teddies At Play`
block one:
`Fishing Teddy` 

Love these felt flowers,
showing the stitching  of the `Cottage Garden Threads` 
and DMC threads off.

And the cute little bird.

I started this BOM at long last for 
Chooky`s  Stitching Party this weekend.
Are you taking part?

 Miss Tilly chilling out. :)
Time to get back to stitching
block two:
`School Girl Lane`.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Happy Stitching,

Hello my friends.
In December last year I was the winner of 
pattern and parcels from Kathy`s blog .
So by the time the parcel arrived in the post it was January!
I thought that I had taken a photo!
I had a few things on the go so took awhile to sort and 
stitch this .
The pattern was in this lovely zipper pocket. 

I`m sorry for the photo,
but this stand alone is complete.
Ready to send to a very special friend.

Kathy put this `Flag` fabric in with parcel.
My parcels are slightly different but go with each letter.

Now this is ready to pass on.
Who will be next!

As you can see there is four parcels
plus the pattern.
Part of agreeing to accept 
you must agree to pass the pattern on with gifts
for each letter of 
F, L ,A  and G.
If you are interested in being next in line 
please leave a comment on this post
(with a way of contacting you)
and a name will be drawn on the 
7th June. 
Happy Stitching,

Tuesday Mystery

Hello my friends.
With having my operation I haven`t showed my 
`Tuesday Mystery`
`The Country Yard`.
Every 2nd Tuesday of the month
 we email our progress to get the next part
With part 1 instructions we were given a piece of fabric
 to include in each part:

I choose this cat from 
`Kitty Capers` by Carol Armstrong for my centre.
In this block I used the fabric in one of the cotton reels.
The background is pieced.

In this border the fabric is shown much better of the tape measure print.
I have used pieces from the centre into the border.
The next part is waiting for me to start on this.
I will show my progress each time.
Till next time,
Happy Stitching.

Banner and other happenings

Hello my friends.
Time for a visit with me.
My letter for bunting this month is

I was in hospital overnight for my shoulder operation.
Because the two tears in shoulder had started to heal
the surgeon was able to do key hole surgery.
I only had five stitches to be removed
and now they are out the cuts don`t show that much. :)
I am having physio once a week with homework to do three times a day.
I am pain free most of the time within movements that I am allowed to make.
I see the surgeon on the 2nd of June.

Before my operation I cut out my blocks for
Chookblues SAL `Natures Journey` by Anni Downs.
Then this month was only applique and buttonhole edging.
The blocks for May complete.

More to show soon.
Hope you enjoyed your short visit.
Happy Stitching,
