Happy Belated Memorial Day! I meant to log on over the weekend, but my youngest son played in a soccer tournament and it seems we spent most of our weekend there. Especially since his team made it to the championship round. They lost in the finals, but it was a great soccer weekend. Between soccer, laundry( which really should be a 4-letter word) and a barbeque with the neighbors, I didn't have time to get online.
As always, thanks to Heather at Stitching Lotus for sponsoring the monthly SAL. I would never write anything on my blog if it wasn't for her.
And here's this month's finishes
Friends are like bras; I love that saying. And while it isn't really a "small", it was a finish for the month. This Lizzie Kate pattern was a gift for a close friend and the Friday's Child card was for her since she was born on a Friday. The Happy Birthday card is for a co-worker.
More graduation cards.
The green and purple card was a commission by a neighbor for her nephew who is getting married in June. The purple cardstock is from their wedding invitation. The sympathy card was for a class mate of my youngest son. Her older brother died from colon cancer. He played lacrosse in high school.
Thanks you for my youngest son's soccer coach for a great season. The airplane card went to a co-worker. They are doing a travel theme in their nursery. His baby was born 8 weeks early, at only 2 lbs 5 oz and while doing well, has along way to go.
WOCS as they are making a travel based quilt.
A few more pieces that are stitched but not turned into cards.
Darling daffodils, which is a freebie from World of Cross Stitching Magazine and another blackwork "Happy Birthday". The "maze" is for a co-worker that is moving on to another company. I wish her the very best of luck. I'll be busy making these designs into cards tonight as they need to be done tomorrow!
And finally, this scrabble board has been a work in progress for 3 years! There's a lot of color #822 and frankly, I just got tired of stitching it, a couple of times. It's for my mother-in-law, who is a Scrabble fan. I was determined to finish it and stayed up until 1am Saturday night(technically Sunday morning) to finish it. Her birthday isn't until August, so I have time to put it on a card. But no more DMC #822!!!!!!!!
Happy Stitching everyone!
