What A Day, What A Day...

Last night my husband tried to help me sew the pieces that I made for my tea swap into tuck-a-ways. After several hours, we ended up making more of a mess than anything else. So off I went this morning to my local frame shop hoping that someone might be able to rescue me. Everyone was so helpful, and two hours later I walked out of the shop with both of my pieces framed by me! Actually, I had a lot of help, but I feel so proud of myself. I then realized that I had forgotten to eat lunch, so after a quick trip to a local tea shop for a new gadget, dd and I had a leisurely lunch of salad and gourmet pizza. Later on Milsey took me to the UPS store to ship six (yes six) packages hither and yon. I did however, just realize that I forgot to take pictures of the framed pieces. Here's hoping that my swap mates will send pictures so that I may post my latest finishes.

Last night (after the tuck-a-way debacle) I started on a freebie called Lovebird by Midsummer Night Designs. It's adorable and such fun to stitch. I will post pictures of my progress tomorrow. Well, I'm really tired from my busy day, so I will end this post. Write more later!

Found my way here by way of CathyB~
I am so impressed with the fact that your husband assisted you with your finishing. Sorry the tuck pillow did not work out but I do look forward to seeing a picture of the framed piece.
Hope that you got some rest!

I also followed the link on CathyB's blog :)

I have a little tutorial on my blog for finishing into a pillow. It gives the look of a tuck pillow, but for me it's easier.

Which LHN freebies are you looking for?

Happy Stitching

Hi, thanks for your visit to my blog and thanks for the comment.
The thread keeper which you would like to have is the gift from my friend, so I don't know exactly where she bought them, but I just tell you the shop where I know.
Visit : http://www.ilfilomagico.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=6&keyword=&manufacturer_id=0&Itemid=31&orderby=product_name&limit=50&limitstart=0&vmcchk=1&Itemid=31

There is also the bird thread keeper, I don't know it's the same as mine, though...

Take care!
