FOLLOWERS TO MY BLOG

Its always fun to open up my blog and find another follower had added herself to my friends list, this time on returning home after a week away I find not one new friend but ten! WOW   not sure how you all found me but welcome I hope you will always find something to enjoy here. As many of my followers do not have blogs where I can visit and get to known you, I invite  you to email me and introduce yourself I would love to hear from my new friends.

 I need to catch up on a few mundane things before I have time to share my weekend with you.. it was just great...... so that will be next time.

Stitching friends exchange this time was a Thread Ring Tag ( Floss ring tag) my exchange partner I was to stitch for was Ann and as we were together at the weekend I did not post it but took it up to her, Its always fun to see peoples faces as they open up parcels. ( I also took up her birthday gift but left that for her to open on the day, so will show you what I stitched after the date)

This lovely design is  from Danybrod creations    http://dany88.canalblog.com/ I printed off the chart  a long time ago and when looking for something to stitch for Ann it seemed just right, now I think I might stitch it again this time for myself. I chose for mounting, the dark red silk that Ann had used when making her pomegranate.

 
I received this delightful rose design thread ring tag from Joan in the same exchange and promptly put it to use. I find these a  most useful needlework accessory  and Paul cuts the cardboard thread holders for me.

Have you ever lost yourself in the middle of stitching a pattern ? I don't know how it happened by when stitching "Little Miss Witch"a freebie from Krienik threads. I did just that so rather than re stitch it a little camouflaging  was needed. I also changed the hair colouring to match Maree's who I made it for. The chart is still available http://www.kreinik.com/index.html look under free Halloween cross stitch patterns.

Back again soon.

Annie said...

These are wonderful! I love the way you construct them. Can you give us any hints on how to do this type of fob?

The witch is perfect.. I never would have thought to use that design this way.

Lee, the ring tags look soo pretty. Was the ring tag that you made for Ann a freebie? I did go over to Danybrod creations, but could not figure out how to download the charts.
I came across your blog through Lynn's and am definitely loving it :)

All three are delightful, Lee. I love how you made the witch's hair red to match your friend's--so cute. And, of course, that green skin is delightful :)
