Birthday Gift for Michelle

Today is Michelle's birthday, and she has let me know that she has received some gifts that I sent to her. Happy Birthday, Michelle! The stitched part of my gift is:
Topiary Bird Floss Ring Tag

Praiseworthy Stitches

Silkweaver 40 ct Solo Newcastle Linen, GAST Floss


Halloween Fairy continues to grow. I get comments every time I post her asking who the designer is, what fabric I am using and how to get the chart... so, I figured it was time to post that info again: This is Halloween Fairy by Nora Corbett, and the chart is found in the September 2008 issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework Magazine. I am stitching her on Silkweaver Phantom Belfast Linen :-)

Yay, it is the weekend!!

Stitched on today: Started a PIF gift, and stitched on Halloween Fairy **Mailed out my HoE Needle Roll Exchange today

I love Michelle's floss tag, so cute! Is that a freebie, or a published design?

karenv said...

Never mind, I just saw your freebie gallery post ;) Off to print!

She's looking good. Thanks for the info. I'll go have a look in Borders this afternoon, see if it's reached the UK yet.

Love the floss tag, I need to learn how to make them! The freebie you stitched is adorable, I went and printed the chart right away. Your Halloween fairy is gorgeous too!

Your work is so inspirational.
You have received an award see my blog.

Lisa said...

Love your work! I just had a thought. Does Halloween Fairy remind anyone else of Renny on Big Brother 10? Or is everyone watching the Olympics? ;)

Lelia said...

Hi Carol : ) Just stopping by your blog to catch up on all the goodies. Goodness Carol -- you stitch more than any person I know!!!

Do you ever sleep?

Danielle said...

Beautiful floss ring tag. How do you stop it fraying on the back?

Janaina said...

I love the way your fairy is coming along! Really pretty piece!

Michelle said...

Love love love my floss ring tag! Those rings you've found are fabulous (so much better than plain old silver LOL!). Thank you again, my sweet friend. Hmmm, I think I have some Phantom fabric in my stash, I may have a new start on my hands! It looks beautiful on the fabric choice!
