Fourth Finish For 2009

These little guys have been finished for quite awhile now but with everything that has been going on, this is the first moment I've had to post pictures. So...I present to you Photobooth Snowmen by Bent Creek -

Photobucket

I absolutely LOVE this pattern! The snowmen are so cute and their antics are comical. I did not add the snow in the background though because I felt it really didn't add anything. I love them just the way they are :o)

Thanks to Nancy's generosity, she saved the project by sending me a skein of GAST Roasted Marshmallow! This was for the 'dirty' coloured snowman and as you can see, it was a really good variegated skein. Maybe I should get a personal shopper more often ;o) You were a lifesaver girl and I haven't forgotten about you!

Awhile back, I received the most amazing surprise in the mail -

Photobucket

This lovely birdie came from Ranae as a thank you for The Victoria Sampler giveaway that she won on my Blog. It was completely unexpected but what a thoughtful gift. I always feel honoured when I receive a piece of stitching from another stitcher. It will truly be cherished :o) Thank you again Ranae and I apologize for taking so long to post a picture.

I want to thank everyone again for all their wonderful support. I am starting to get back on my feet again, although it's still hard to find joy knowing there is a hole in my heart :o( I went grocery shopping today and lo and behold what did I need but Dill Pickles. Sigh.

The snowmen look great. That's a perfect fabric too. That was a very clever idea by the designers. It's so hard to come up with something a little different, especially when it comes to snowmen since there are so many snowmen designs out there.

Happy stitching and hope things continue to get better and better.

What a fun finish, it would help to brighten your day to see it. I'm so sorry to hear about Pickles. I'm behind in my reading and just saw your entry. It is so hard to loss a pet, they're family, children with a fur coat as they say, and such a joy in our lives. It leaves such a gap in your life. {{hugs}}

Fab finish! I have that little delightful kit winging it's way to me now from Drema! Congrats! Lovely gift from Ranae!

Lili said...

I sure relate to your feelings about looking for treats for your dear Pickles. That's what I kept doing for my dog. Now we have a new Puppy and it's a great feeling. But it took us seven months to reach this point.
Many hugs, Cathey,
Lili
