F.N.W.F.

With my glass of wine beside me and a great movie to watch, I set up my stitching and got quite a bit done. 030 (Medium) It is the poem for my MIL’s Christmas present….I know I’m safe….she doesn’t use the computer at all!!!! 029 (Medium) I almost got the first verse stitched out….using a variegated brown thread….an Anchor brand this time….quite nice to stitch with too! Not sure where I got this verse from…..but I printed it out on my computer in a font I liked, added some little floral dividers I doodled between the verses and then traced it onto some lovely linen fabric I bought from Fee in one of her daily deals (which you can sign up for any day of the week by clicking on this link!!)…. and voila! I’m going to make it into a wall hanging in her favourite browns and greens……must get wriggling on this one! daisy divider I also got this one finished during the afternoon…so a bit of an early start for FNWF, but I thought I’d show you anyway. 002 (Medium)003 (Medium) Isn’t she a cutie pie???   A little mouse pin cushion….I’m going to set myself up to make a few more of these tonight…so easy and so cute!  They are a Fig Tree design which I got here as a small project kit of the month.  Great presents that I MUST catch up on!….do you think it’s ok if FNWF extends to Saturday and Sunday???? *wink* Sugary hugs xox :O) Signature
