Kim's Kindness

Yesterday the postie bought a little parcel to my home.  Inside was this exquisite card and two beautiful poems,
And the loveliest stitchery in memory of my dear little Matilda.
The stitchery was designed and made by wonderful Kim of Wisdom with Needle and Thread. Kim really understands as she lost two fur babies in two weeks.  Just heart breaking.

Kim I am overwhelmed by your kindness.  Such a beautiful thing to do for someone you have never met, on the far side of the world.  You have really touched my heart and I am very very grateful.

Simple, beautiful, achievable.  All I need to say really.
Enormous thanks to Sara at Tell Love and Chocolate.  You can find the link HERE.
Have a wonderful day.

Tiny stitching

My passion for small things and particularly small stitching continues.  At my last Stitching with Rosie Class not only did we get a gorgeous new full size pattern we got a tiny teeny weeny stitchery too.  I decided to finish stitching it last night whilst watching a really ridiculous film about a zombie policeman.

I usually giveaway or swap most things I make but I'm keeping this one for me.  Rosie is so clever and I love this little project
Aaahhh! Wonderful Alex Toys.  Such a great discovery, such wonderful printables including this one
which you can find if you follow this LINK.  There are brilliant assembling instructions too.
Hope your day has time for some play

Sweet Shez

I am very lucky to have sweet Shez as one of my much loved bloggy friends.
Look what arrived in the post today.  It is a giveaway win from Shez.  I got to choose the stitchery design and the colour.  I chose this design and colour so it wouldn't look too Christmassy and could stay out on display all year around.
She is hanging next to a really beautiful handmade card from dear Michelle.
Further along is a card from lovely Christine.
I do love my bloggy friends.
Something a little bit different today.  Here is a LINK to Free downloadable iphone wallpapers by Maiko Nagao at Maiko Nagao.
They are very very beautiful.  Many thanks to Maiko.
Have a truly happy day

A little bit of hand quilting

on my table runner, is my project for tonight.
I just adore the strawberry fabric I'm using on the back.

Every member of the family deserves a cute new garment now and again.
Even a furry family member.  Just follow this LINK to a great tutorial on Roses Are Blue.  Many thanks to Kara.
Happy Monday

Stitchery Stitching

I've not done much in the way of stitchery stitching lately so I got out this cute little project and almost finished the second stitchery.  Just need to complete the little touches of orange, then quilt the project.
Little Henry went home for a couple of days as Sam had a few days off but he will be back this afternoon which makes me very happy.  I don't think I'll get much hand quilting done until he goes home again.
This is what my mum and dad bought him for Christmas.  It goes 15 km an hour which is very fast when he is chasing you!

Aren't these cute?
I think they are adorable.  Of course there is a free pattern and a free tutorial HERE at wonderful Little Woollie.  Julie's blog is beautiful so please pop over and say hi and look at all the loveliness.
Have a wonderful Sunday

Fussy Cut Friday on Saturday and FNSI results

Last night I stitched along with Wendy for Friday Night with Friends.  I made some more little fussy cut hexie flowers for my Times Past quilt.  The new ones are in the top row.
I love making these little hexies with half inch papers.  Currently I find myself really enjoying making and stitching things on a small scale.

I'm enjoy being part of Angie's Fussy Cutters club so eventually I will link this fussy cutting up with her.(She is taking a short blogging break at the moment)

I do enjoy searching out hexie projects and I think this one is grand.
Really really cute and there is a fabulous tutorial too HERE at While She Naps. Enormous thanks to Abby for sharing it with us.
Hope there is time in your life for some stitching today,
