I heard from Perri
in Australia today that my HOE
biscornu has arrived with her. I am so glad that it arrived safe and sound and that she likes it. On her blog she stated that she likes 'pretty' and 'pretty' is what I tried to do for her. Up until a few days ago I had no idea who the designer was as I stitched it from a picture that I came across while surfing the www. I now know it's by Giulia Punti Antichi GPA and called Summer Face and is from one of her seasonal biscornus which, together with Spring Face, can be obtained from Shakespeare's Peddler
. I stitched it on 32ct antique white linen with DMC threads and white perle number 12 for the 4-sided stitching. The beads are white Delica's. I did make some amendments of my own, changing some flowers from Rhodes stitches to Queen stitches and adding the 4-sided stitch border and, of course, both Perri's initials, my initials and the date. Enjoy it Perri!
Thank you for all your kind comments re my thumb. It is still extremely sore but the swelling has started to go down so I can at least bend it. I just hope I don't lose the nail this time as it took ages for it to look normal again after it's last mishap with the car door and it's not as though my local nail salon knocks off 1/10th of the price of a French manicure! This afternoon I shall attempt a little stitching and I really want to get my HOE
pinkeep put together so I am on time with mailing it to my partner.
Yesterday I watched 5 or 6 episodes of Dexter
than I had recorded on the Sky+ box. I think this must be Series 1 but, as I see that Series 3 is being shown in the US, I am not actually sure which series I am watching but I like it, in a rather gruesome way! I am also an avid Lost
fan but do admit to being a bit 'lost' as to what's happening. They promised us answers but those answers just initiated new questions - maybe they are just making it up as they go along?
Thanks for visiting
