First finish and a Question
It's only taken me to Jan. 21st but eventually I got needle and thread to connect and this is what I stitched up this week.
It was a freebie pattern and as I printed it off a year ago, I'm sorry for not being able to tell you where it comes from, apart from on my printout it says 'dessine par Maryse'.
Update: I thought I better do a bit of research via google and sure enough I found the link to Maryse's wonderful stitching blog and all the free charts she has posted so here's the link:
It was definitely an exercise in patience! as I spent quite a bit of time ripping out to start again!
I thought I'd make it into a heart shaped hanging pillow. If you're interested in buying this it is for sale priced £7.00.
I got a great surprise this week when I found out I was the lucky winner of Stephani's 'Friendly' giveaway on her blog Front Porch Primitives which you should to visit! This is what I am so excited to have won, made by Steph's own hands! So precious, thanks Steph!
One of the things I'm turning over in my mind this year is whether or not to keep 2 blogs on the go and just sell anything I get time to make from this blog as it is the main one? Any thoughts or input would be great.
But my most important question relates to another issue I've been deliberating on... I don't know if I have the nerve - some might say the audacity - to sell some patterns for cross stitch and other makedo's.
Sooooo, what I'd really love to know is whether or not anyone would be interested and what kind of a price for patterns do you think is reasonable?
I must also thank each of you who left a comment on my last post to wish us well and pray for us. In some instances in life we need to learn afresh that we are powerless but that God has promised never to leave us or forsake us. I have been comforted by just a two word phrase:
'God knows'. There are the diamond mines of God, if we meditate on them!
Thanks again for your company!
I look forward to hearing from you!
