I am back for good now. Yay! Miss H is feeling much, much better. Yay again! Now, just because we have been away from Blog-land doesn't mean that we haven't been making things. So I have some new things to show you over the coming weeks. I am so excited!!!
First of all, Miss H and the Mother have been trying something new. It all started when they were watching old fashioned movies (romance ones - ew!) which had quilts in them. They noticed that many of the quilts did not use white as a background but instead used a colour - usually yellow. Miss H and the Mother were keen to try using a colour as their background - not just in their quilts but also for their stitcheries.
That was when Miss H found a bag of scraps the Mother had given her that contained five pink squares.
Miss H was at home up in Auckland, but the Mother was away visiting the Geek so Miss H decided to stitch up four stitcheries for the Mother on the pink squares and use the last one for something else.
Miss H drew the stitcheries with a water erasable pen. The Mother is usually the one who draws out all of the stitcheries as she is good at using a pencil (which Miss H prefers to stitch over), but one cannot make a surprise gift if the recipient has to draw it out!
I was hoping to show you more pictures but... Snowy got grumpy and shoved me out of the way and insisted that Miss H do something with him *. He is even lying on her stitchery bags so she couldn't do anymore stitcheries!!!
Miss H decided to take pity on Snowy and took him out - she even bought him an ice-cream!!!
He gets very sooky when the Mother goes away and acts as if his world has ended.
Maybe if I did the same Miss H would buy me chocolate...
The reveal of the completed stitcheries will have to wait until the weekend, along with the coloured fabric choices Miss H and the Mother made to try stitching on.
*Possibly not the actual story...
