I've been reading Stitch Bitch blog for a while now and her stories of her grandmother, Maggie, have always amused me. So, when she put out a call for birthday cards to be sent to Maggie on her 89th birthday, how could I say no? After all, this is a lady whom I hope to emulate when I'm her age ^.^
Two weeks before the big day, I put on my thinking cap. Once again, I went on my trusted Stitching Cards website for inspiration and made this.
I really love this design. The basket is stitched with metallic gold thread and gold beads are added to the flowers for that extra sparkle.
I think the card arrived a couple days late but at least it didn't go missing which I'm grateful for.
22nd March was once again my best friend, Adeline's birthday. As with years past, I had a kitty design stitched and framed for her.
I, for one, think it would be perfect in the baby's room but that's for her to decide, of course.
Dede, another good friend of mine's birthday is also coming up in April. Remember my Passione Ricamo piece I had stitched? It was first intended for her birthday last year and then postponed to Christmas... It is now framed too and finally ready to be presented to her.
Other than that, I've also been working on New Birth of Spring sporadically and this is where it stands at the moment.
However, it has now been put on hold while I try to catch up on Romantique Sampler. Part 2 stitched.
First month is now complete.
Onwards to Part 4... But I have a Birthday Exchange due in May...
Talk about a full plate! I have only myself to blame but I'm enjoying every single minute of it :D
