Let Love Bloom - Country Cottage Needleworks
Happy belated Valentine's Day!
Sorry I am a day late with my post
Things have been quite busy, windy & rainy around here
Let's just say this is my excuse :)
First is my latest finish
Let Love Bloom from CCN
Stitched on 28ct Brittney evenweave lilac, 2 over 2
Using preconised DMC colours except for the greens
Full stitches & French knots
Finished as a pinkeep
using batting, pink fabric, pink ribbon & coloured pins
Recently I was lucky to win the main prizes on several giveaways!
There was one from sweet June at Butterfly wings
This one is a little special, so will be subject to a later post
There was also Steph's giveaway over at Show & Tell
I was really surprised to find out I came first & won her mystery parcel
Here are the lovely items I've received, all nicely packed in a HUGE envelope
A sweet card, salty caramel candle & buttons assortment
The cutest little felty creation
Perfect for my pins, needles & scissors
Complete with a piece of white sparkly aida fabric!
When I first saw it folded I thought,
OMG, Steph has made a granny blanket!!! WOW!!
(Let's just say I wish I could make one myself, but would have to learn to crochet first...)
When I unfolded the MASSIVE creation it revealed the most pretty crochet blanket.... Star shaped!!!
It's huge :) Here is part of it on one of my sofas
Thank you so so much Steph!!
I love all you lovely gifts
Finally I have been admiring many of these frilly scarves over several blogs.
Tania kindly emailed me a tutorial (thank you sweetie) and I decided to give it a go!!!
Here are my first 3 finished
Now due a little trip to the post office, to send some over to my family
