Oh May - Oh My
I have enjoyed celebrating May For Me with all of my followers. This has been a terrific month long birthday party and I recommend it to anyone. Celebrate YOU!! AND today IS my Birthday and a whole week left to celebrate!!
here so please go visit.
I am still playing with my 'brights'. I have 4 segments now and still playing around with them on how to set them into this puzzle. I do have a border and backing fabric ready, so once I get the center finalized this will be quickly finished up.
I finished the 'Flirting With Flowers' wallhanging. This was a BOM on Vicki's The Pickledish Patch site (originally called Toz's Corner). I changed some elements, being a beginner in applique. I added buttons (eliminated circles), beading, and different embroidery.
This little wallhanging 'Daisy-Do' was a free project on Jennifer Reynold's Elefantz blog. I, also, changed this one up from the original in leaving out a section and putting the ones I did in a different order. Again - oh my, my buttons.
And the cross stitch is finally done! Oh, I hate kits, the floss in them is so bad - I fought knots and breakage the whole way. Now to find a nice frame for it.
MAY FOR ME
I have all my monthly goals done and still have a week to play. I want to have fun with Sew Mama Sew's May 23rd bloggers' list give aways. I have stayed away from a lot of give aways of late, but I think I will just love to browse the blogs. Besides - it's my birthday and I can treat myself to some fun.
MAY CELEBRATION GIVE AWAY
