All you need is Love

Not too much stitching on my Quaker SAL with Yuko but Love is coming along nicely and it will probably be finished later today. 

Julie - the fabric - it's 36ct Edinburgh and the colour is flax.

Last night was Stitch-n-Bitch and I took along Little by Little's Quaker Blackbird. I didn't get too much done but I enjoyed what I did. 

I managed to fix Kirby's printer yesterday. It just need alignment after putting in new ink cartridges but ...

I am sad to announce the demise of Mr A M Mouse. Mr Mouse was born in 2006 and lived with his owner for over two years. He took sick last weekend when he became very erratic and refused to scroll downwards. Despite cleaning and being fed new batteries, last night he took a turn for the worse and finally ejected his batteries just after 11pm. There will be a short service at St Apples, Jobs Road, Mackintosh. No flowers by request but donations to the 'Ineeda Numouse Foundation' will be much appreciated.

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Great progress on both Quakers! You'll be having a happy dance soon. That's a very funky button scissors fob :)

    My condolences on the loss off Mr. Mouse. There is a resident of his family at my home too, and he periodically has fainting spells. I wonder if he will be joining Mr. Mouse soon.

    I really like Faith, Hope, Love, and your Quaker Blackbird too. You and Quaker designs are made for each other!

    Oh Carol, forgot to ask....where did you get (or did you make) the cute button scissor fob? I love it and would like to see more of it!

    Poor Mr. Mouse :-). I know he will be missed, LOL.

    I *love* your scissor fob - did you make it yourself or buy it? It's lovely, such a clever idea.

    Nice progress on your Quakers - Quaker Blackbird is one of my favourites. If you would be willing to trade or sell the chart when you're done, please let me know.

    Great progress on the 2 WIPs. So sorry to hear of your loss. :(

    Aw, Carol. So sorry to hear that Mr. Mouse is really and truly gone. I had hoped my little trick would revive him, but alas, it wasn't meant to be.

    Meanwhile, with no Mr. Mouse to distract you, looks like you're getting loads of stitching done. Hey, that "Quaker Blackbird" looks veeery familiar . . . LOL! It's a quick stitch, isn't it? Yours looks great!

    I love the pinkeep you stithed for Su - it's divine! I also want to know about the cute button scissor fob on this post - did you make it or buy it and if you made it, do you think I can, too? Thanks, brdstitcher at gmail dot com
