First, I want to remember to thank everyone for their kind comments that they leave. I appreciate those who take the time to visit me and everyone is so encouraging. Thank you!
This morning I finished my little mermaid from the Trilogy's Seaology Chart. I plan to finish her as a little hanging pillow but I want to find some ribbon or string that will look like rope and I'm thinking of making a tassel for the bottom and gluing on some tiny seashells. I will have to look for both the shells and the string before I can complete the project but I have a few weeks yet to go. That takes care of the finish, now on the the starts!
Tonight when I got home, Nicki had emailed the birthday groups for the Birthday group exchange at the SBEBB. I'm so excited to be a part of this exchange as I think it is such a neat idea. We each stitch something for the other three members of our group for their birthday and we will receive three wonderfully stitched pieces in return. The dates of my group are spread out nicely so that we will have time to really find the perfect thing. And we are quite the international group, one from England, one from Malaysia and a transplanted Kiwi living in Maryland as well as me from Maine. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone better. With the Birthday exchange, I'm now in 4 exchanges! The sweetbag exchange on Legacy which I have stitched and started the finishing on, the sampler house exchange also on Legacy, and a Christmas ornament exchange with the SBEBB ladies. Lots of new starts and finishes to come for me!
Finally, here is the start I made on the CHS Alphabet series. I'm stitching them all over one on the remainder of my 30ct fabric from Plymouth. It's way early in the process but I'm enjoying it so far. There will be small flowers in each straight section of the frame but I haven't decided if I will do the stems in black or a green. I thought I would wait until I get more of the design colors in before deciding.
