Rainy days and Mondays

Rainy Monday here and I finally have something new to post.=)

All the things I have been stitching lately are gifts or swaps so I could not show you guys or the surprise factor would be completely ruined. =D

Last week Simone told me she had got the Bday gift I sent her. First time a pack arrived at the Netherlands in such a fast speed!In fact it got her a few days before the special date! =)

As the unwrapping pack pics are just priceless, I asked her if I could post them here too, so...

It´s such a nice feeling to realise she is now holding the gift I made just for her! All the way from Brasil to the Netherlands.How cool is that?

And here a closer look at the blue birds I stitched on a tea towel. I took them from a Bent Creek sampler, named Love. I changed the colors so it matched to the blue border on the towel.

And finally my weekend stitching. It´s a Jeremiah Junction design (JL152 - Patchwork Seasonal Squares) I love JJ style! As I didnt have all the shades the color key was asking, I changed it a bit to suit my stash.Its a bit different than the original, but I do think it is coming along quite nicely. In fact the magazine offers us 3 different palletes to make it,from a darker one, to a lighter one, so I dont feel THAT guilty. Lol.

That magazine has lots of nice designs ! I do recomend all of you to get one issue.I plan to make a biscornu from that piece.Maybe even a set.
I guess that´s all for now.
Hugs to all, from the not so sunny lands of Brasil... (oh boy... I love Autumn!)
