Some stitching and some goodies

This week have been very very busy. I've finally started at work again :) Only 50% this month, but my shoulder is behaving so well so I know I'll be working full time in april again. And I'm so happy. Of course that means less sewing...........but I've nevertheless been able to sew all I want this time I've been home so I guess there will be no difference. I still have to be careful with my shoulder, but I'm back in business now :)

This week and weekend I have been doing a little bit stitchery. I started this BOM from Gail Pan a while ago. It has been on wait for some time now, but this week I started to stitch block #7 and I finished it this weekend.
So now I have made five of nine blocks in this BOM

I will try to make time tomorrow to sew together the next three blocks I have received.

When Nadine visited me she brought a stitchery for me and her to make together. She knows I love pincushions and she had traced this beutiful pattern for me.

And now I have finished it. So hopefully I'll manage to sew it together to a pincushion tomorrow ........ (read; this week).

And I received some goodies in the mail too :)
From Peg I received a beautiful stitchery she had traced on fabric for me. Together with a beautiful blue fat quarter fabric and a lot of embroidery thread. Thank you so much Peg, I'm looking forward to start stitching on it.

And on Teresa's blog Stitchin' Friends I won a prize in a little contest she had on her blog. And look what she sendt me. Three lovely Yli Silkthread. I reacently discovered this thread, and I love using it for my needleturn applique. And the fun part is that this thread is made in her home town. She also made me a lovely needlecase..................

Look, it has mini scissor which can be folded together. Love it!!!! And as a pin collector I'm I love the quiltpin from Quilters of South Carolina. Thank you so much Teresa.


Saying for today:

Cats do care. For example they know instinctively what time we have to be at work in the morning and they wake us up twenty minutes before the alarm goes off.

I love all the embroidery I see on the blogs and am ready to do some myself. So glad that you liked the things I sent and I had no idea you collected pins when I sent you the South Carolina one. You BOM blocks are cute and the the stitchery is excellent.

Nadine's pincushion stitchery looks great! You'll have a gorgeous pincushion done in no time now! I still haven't found time to start mine :(

Your Gail Pan Bom is looking beautiful. Good to hear your shoulder is healing well. The embroidered pin cushion looks stunning, can't wait to see it finished.
