Cyber Stitching Kick Off (63)

I decided to make a start on the stitcheries this evening, else I would have nothing to Show and Tell while the actual Stitchery Day is going on. So, just a few hours early, here are the magnet and the bookmark. Sorry the picture is all so yellow - it's dark here so I had to use the flash. No real problems, except that I stitched the large copy of the picture for the magnet instead of the small one. Luckily I had some green felt that I was able to use. I added some iron-on vilene to the bookmark, to give it a little extra body.

I hope everyone has a great day. I'll try to check in before you leave, if I wake early enough tomorrow morning. The chocolates were delish - I've never had chocolate covered liquorice before. 

Tomorrow I plan to make the little wall-hanging, as a house-warming present for my sister-in-law, and make a start on the stitcheries for the quilt. Check back here later to see what I've managed to do.

Those are adorable. Is the cyber stitching kick-off something special going on? It sounds like you've gotten a lot done, and have more planned, I hope that means that you are feeling better, and licked the headache.

Those are gorgeous! I won't be starting mine tonight. DH and I have a dinner and movie date. Can't pass that up, even to stitch! I am ready to start first thing tomorrow morning!

Your projects look wonderful! I wish I had the patience to do them. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. Now that I have learned to put up multiple pix there is no telling what I will post next! :D

They may be a tad bit yellow, but the work looks great. I enjoy embroidery and usually do it in the evenings while watching a movie. I have added your site to my favorite blogs; stop by sometime and visit.

Lovely projects Amanda, we had a lovely day. I'll have lots of pics over the next couple of days. I'll be back to check on your progress.

Amanda,

The chocolate covered licorice is called 'bullets'. They are among my favourite treats.

All the projects were lovely weren't they. Hard to choose which one to do first.

I love the stitcheries. I missed the boat on this one as I talked myself out of it. If she runs it again I'll have to join in.

Love and hugs xxx
