prodigal stitches

Well, I didn`t expect to have anything to report so soon but then earlier this week, some of my prodigal stitches have returned to me and I could not be happier! :D Lookee what Postie`s turned up with:
I am so thrilled to have these two back! I loved working on them and I also loved the way they were made up for the photo shoot. So now I`m going to find (or make) a cushion to fill Amanda Gregory`s bunny cushion cover (from Gold 109 - you can read more about how it was made here) and I also need to find a hoop big enough to frame the sunflowers the way you can see the picture in Gold 113. I have stitched quite a few Durene Jones designs (you can read my blog post about this sunflower picture here) and have enjoyed every one of them, from cards to BAPs, from bold colours to traditional Christmas charts - so it`s a special delight, and the perfect ending to this gift-filled week, that my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cross-Stitch-A-to-Z) got a Like from her - how awesome is that?? Every time I think of it, or look at my stitchy goodies, I can`t stop grinning - all in all, an unbelievably good week! ;) Happy stitching, everyone!

    1. Thanks, Violka - and congrats to you too: I`ve seen your egg cosies in the latest issue of Cross Stitch Crazy, well done you! Oh, and on the same Readers` Page there`s a photo of Rapunzel, a lady has stitched her for her granddaughter, so I`ve met `familiar faces` on every other page of the magazine, it`s such a lovely feeling! :)

  2. Lucky you! It must be such a lovely feeling when you get your gorgeous stitching returned to you and knowing how much pleasure they've given to so many people!

  3. Thank you, Elle - I count myself very lucky when the occasional stitch finds its way back to me (usually, they are either sent back to the designer or are given away to various charities). But I was lucky enough to have the Maria Diaz castle returned last year (this one: http://xstitchatoz.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/cross-stitch-collection-232.html) and, just in time for last Christmas, Santa`s Journey (http://xstitchatoz.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/a-true-christmas-surprise.html). The lovely Rebecca Bradshaw said that I`d put so much work in it that they felt I was its true owner, lol! How are you getting on with yours? xx
