I had a lovely surprise when I arrived home today and saw what the postman had left me. Look at the lovely package I received from Mylene! I was lucky enough to be the winner of her March giveaway and won this lovely mattress pinkeep and scissors fob (which I have attached to my favourite pair of Gingher scissors)
I wish you could all see the finishing on both these items, it’s just perfect and makes me feel hopelessly inadequate! Thank you Mylene, I really do love them!
I have a few progress pics to share with you, first of all Saturday’s Cirque des Triangles. I did get quite a lot done really, and filled in a few of the empty triangles. As usual the picture isn’t very good, as I always seem to end up taking pictures at night and the light in our lounge isn’t that good.
Next, on to Sunday’s Grand Marquoir. I’m stitching one block per rotation slot, which should take me nicely to the release of part 3. This time it was the letter C. I’ve taken a picture of the whole thing this time, so you can see how it’s coming along.
I spent the rest of Sunday finishing the stitching on Hearts and Flowers tuffett. I haven’t got a pic at the moment as I took it in to work so I could go to town and buy a button for it (which I never managed to do) and I have left it in my desk. I had meant to pick up some buttons on Monday when I went in to down to buy some of the supplies for finishing What a Hoot, but was a little disappointed in the selection at the shop, they were all huge and quite plain, so I am having a look online to see if I can find any. Any suggestions of where to buy buttons and general finishing items, particuarly fabrics, online would be appreciated.
